YES!! Joni Ekman is back on kenrock,,, after all the great records that the ACHTUNGS have done and the great solo records That Joni have done,, its now time for this one 4 short great punkrock songs,, and yes this time he sings in one of the best punkrock langue finnsih,,, damnd great record,,, 300 copies all looks the same,,,, black vinyl with glitter dust in it,,,,

Our take: Punk Ekman is a pseudonym for one (or maybe more?) of the Achtungs. I’m not sure if the Achtungs are done (which would be a shame!), but I assume that the existence of this 4-songer can’t be a good sign, because it sounds pretty much exactly like the Achtungs. I absolutely loved all of the Achtungs’ records, and these four tracks would have fit perfectly on any of them. In case the Achtungs reference means nothing to you, basically Punk Ekman sound like a harder, faster take on the traditional European punk sound of bands like the Rude Kids or Ivy Green (who Punk Ekman sound quite a bit like, particularly on the vocal department) delivered through the fuzz-drenched production of 90s garage bands like the Registrators or Teengenerate. It’s a simple formula, but like the formula of pop music itself, it has proven an infinitely extensible one. If you think that the Now that’s What I Call Music compilations should be sourced entirely from the roster of Rip Off Records, then this is band that should definitely be on your radar.
