ATTANAS - Joulupukki-E.P. - (Hätäapu Records-Finland-1987)


Attanas was a punk band of the late 1980s in the city of Tampere, Finland. Or from a place called Lentävänniemi in northern Tampere, to be more exact  Attanas, the band itself and their closest friends were members of a local youth club, "Lentsun klubi". From those youths was to become a band that wanted to tell what they thought of matters surrounding them without asking anybody. Also, they played their music just as they wanted, with no regrets. Influences were drawn first mainly from 77-punk but later there can be found similarities with hardcore or even speed metal. Not to forget about alcohol and its consumption. Though Attanas released four records, three 7" EP's and 8 tracks on a compilation album "Stop Vivisection - Use Yuppies", they never toured or even did too many gigs. The main reason for that was that they really didn't care too much to leave Lentävänniemi. (info from LastFmclick me
