Astro Can Caravan

 

Astro Can Caravan

Astro Can Caravan was founded in the heartlands of Eastern Finland some time around the year 2001, and from the very beginning the direction was towards the outer space. It's not always exactly clear how old the band is, or who the members are, but in general the starry host revolves around Otto Eskelinen, Tomi Kosonen and Pharaoh Pirttikangas. Onstage these three central stars are joined by a diverse number of other musicians from the Hall of Fame of new Finnish pop and rock.

Trying to define Astro Can Caravan's music precisely is not easy on the writer or on the reader, but let's try: the strong presence of wind instruments leads one to think about something jazzy, then come the seductive Oriental melodies, and then the wall of winds enters again and blows away the debris of modern sound terrorism from one's auditory canals. Coltrane, Magma, Can, Sun Ra and other pioneers that liked to ridicule the limits of consciousness before breakfast are the fuel of this rocket, and stepping aboard will take you far. This world domination plan does not suffer from lack of resources, especially when it comes to vision, ambition, or pure manpower. Let Astro Can Caravan shut your mouth, open your ears, relax your muscles and – first and foremost – widen your horizons!
