5. Advanced Art – “Darkhive: The Tape & Vinyl Years” Vinyl

Advanced Art

2015 marked the 30th anniversary of Finnish electronic pioneers Advanced Art, originally founded by Pasi “Jana” Janhunen, Petri “Pete” Huttunen and Petja “Vince” Valasvaara on October 13th, 1985. Hailing from Tampere, Advanced Art existed from 1985 to 1995, during which time they released several cassettes, two split 7″ with Finnish goth mainstays Two Witches, and eventually a 12″, a CD maxi, and two CD albums on Finland’s pioneering Poko Rekords label.

Exactly 30 years after the official formation of Advanced Art (October 13th, 2015),”Darkhive: The Tape & Vinyl Years” saw the light of day. It ended up being a special 11-track compilation featuring rare cassette tracks, the band’s hard to find 7″ material, and tracks from the collector’s item “Scar” 12″.

Here’s a preview of the release, which you can still order right here.

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 2 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.

The donations are safely powered by Paypal.
