Description

Swissair - Soundtrack from the film ”Hermafrodiitit”

1980's cassette culture. The band’s initial concept was to play ”scientific music” – as a liberating move away from the young artists’ earlier enthusiasm about the booming Finnish punk rock. In practice the taped experiments consisted of gloriously amateurish and unintentionally idiosyncratic extrapolations based on early This Heat, Cabaret Voltaire, Metal Box-era PiL, The Residents, and others.

For the soundtrack of this work, ”Hermafrodiitit” (”Hermaphrodites”), Mika Taanila segued seven tracks from Swissair’s cassette albums. The gloom and desperation of the early 1980s’ cultural climate can be distinctly heard through layers of tape hiss and recent post-punk revivals, but somewhat unusually for the time of creation of Swissair’s oeuvre, the key is in the perplexing humour which permeates every moment of ”Hermafrodiitit” and is reflected in its title.
