2015 release. Shadoks Music presents a reissue of Sepi Kuu's Rannan Usvassa (1980). Until now there has been no information at all about Sepi Kuu. It wasn't even certain if Sepi Kuu was a real band. Sepi Kuu was a one-man project and the music has never been performed live. The artist kept his real identity hidden behind his alias and wants to keep it this way. It all started February-March 1980, when Maarit, the wife of the poet Mikko Tola, got in touch with Sepi Kuu and asked him if he'd be interested in composing music for her husband's poems. Sepi Kuu did all the arrangements and played all the instruments, except for the bass on track six. Often the acoustic guitar was recorded first, then the other instruments: electric guitar, drums, synthesizer, flute, Indian bells and/or clay drums were added one by one. The vocal parts were always done last. The twelve songs that make up Rannan Usvassa contained influences from psychedelic to folk and oriental. Sepi Kuu said rather the psychedelic-prog-folk of the English band Comus was a big influence for him but also Pere Ubu, Suicide and Joy Division were found as influences. Rannan Usvassa is full of real stoned sounds, dreamy dark vocals, strange vibes and atmospheres, all connected to the poems of Mikko Tola. Great singing, Hawkwind-type of sounds, Parameter, Dr. Hooker, stoned, strange and spherical. 180 gram vinyl. Comes in a heavy sleeve with a two-page insert. Edition of 500 (numbered).
