Its fair to say The Duplo! blazed a trail fo punk rock-nirvana int he late 1990´s with the release of a series of EPs that were not only ground-breaking in their ´who gives a fuckness´ but reached outside cosy Finnish environs. In 2016 Soliti collected these EP´s/7" onto the thrillingly debauched Full Speed, No Brain - The 7" Singles Compliation. Tellingly The Duplo! reconvened with the original line up for a series of shows to celebrate the re-issue.
Aleks Duplee (Aleksi Pahkala), Lars Duplee (Lasse Kiehelä) and Waikiki No Tom Tom (Wallu Walpiio) didn´t put a top to their reunion once the collection dates has been delivered. To the studio they went and levered their first new sounds in 20 years.
Here my friend you'll find a new chapter of the Duplo!´s notorious existence = its 2018 and Soliti is delighted to bring you The Duplo! I Rock N Roll EP.
"It opes with a slightly gentle plod with vocals, guitars and minimal percussion while the video pans over a frozen landscape. Suddenly, distortion pedal are pressed, cymbals crash and the beast is unleashed; its quite a juxtaposed sound, but very much welcome in a landscape that occasionally goes mundane. -Austin Town Hall
