Coste Apetrea's Airborne, from 1989

It's always surprising to dig so deep into the muck of the eighties and come out holding a lost prize.  Well, you might have to polish it quite a bit to give it valuable status.  But for tired ears there are some real reasons to operate normally.

There is no reason to introduce Coste, recall he worked with infamous (and brilliant) Swedish RIO band Samla Mammas and in the later 70s to 80s with guitarist Jukka Tolonen.


I don't think you could come up with a better and more poetic track title than Unidentified Flying Sadness:

I actually found most of his earlier solo material quite disappointing, lacking in punch and inventiveness, though I know I'm in the minority with that opinion.



  2. Thanks Julian. Not sure if you're a fan, but Maxophone recently released a studio album. Guess they were on hiatus for 42 years. Sounds pretty good though.

  3. Thanks Great but Nyspolat still the best! Maybe in another post?
