Sperm - Shh! Heinäsirkat album FLAC

Shh! Heinäsirkat ‎(LP, Album, Ltd, RE). De Stijl. Would be interested in trading my original copy of Sperm's "Shh" LP on O Records for a copy of the original "AMMMusic" by AMM. We can talk about a deal (LP/LP - LP/LP+$?) if interested. sl: VG+ lp: VG (surface noise during quiet parts - inner sleeve scuffs have dulled the shine over the years - no skips and barely a pop in sight).

LP2: And the People Screamed (previously unreleased), 3rd Erection EP. LP3: Spermaton (1, 2, 5 & 6 released on WORKS 1968–1976, Vinyl-on-demand, VOD137 (2015). Ungodly racket to some, psychedelic experience to others, The Sperm’s Shh! album and their EP 3rd Erection have become legendary collector’s items, far ahead of their time in terms of musical experimentation. Svart Records have joined forces with Pekka Airaksinen, whose archives have now been opened for The Sperm’s 50th birthday. Almost half of all the material, however, is completely previously unreleased. Four LPs in individual jackets inside a heavy slipcase, plus big booklet  . 1. heinäsirkat 1 (16:05). 3. korvapoliklinikka hesperia (5:57).

A major rarity - I've personally only ever seen one copy - it was released on the fascinating, obscure O Records imprint.

Heinäsirkat' (1970) or his free-jazz-dominated Project Samsa Trio in 1972 (together with Antero Helander & Mattijuhani Koponen). Pekkas and Sperms concerts featured confrontational performance art, which resulted in two members being arrested for simulating sexual intercourse and screening pornographic films. Especially these recorded sequences and the early electronic ambiences on SPERM's musical appearance were mostly created by Pekka Airaksinen. After touring Finland they recorded their most known album "Shh!" with Pekka Airaksinen, and his impact to the record was possibly stronger than the musical ideas borne from the live band's road trips.
