現在も活発に動き続けるフィンランド・アヴァン界の生ける伝説Läjä Äijäläが兄弟のMarkkuと共に80年代初期に始動した実験パンクバンドBilly Boysの合計24曲に及ぶ本当にオイシイ内容の編集盤。1984年にデュオからカルテットへ拡張し更にスリリングな活動を展開、その作風は試聴の通り凄まじい脱線具合とイカレっぷりを発揮しまくるインダストリアル〜エレクトロニクスを飲み込んだ変則パンク/ロック。激レアな1stシングル、未発表までを網羅した完璧な一枚です。フィンランド地下ファンは是非。





In the mid-1980's, the nuclear fallout from the Chernobyl disaster loomed above the small town of Tornio in Northern Finland. Along with many others, it poisoned the drinking water of young Äijälä brothers. Mr. Hank Morlock (Markku Äijälä) and Mr. Johnny Helicopter (Veli-Matti "Läjä" Äijälä of Terveet Kädet) who had previously come up with the idea of a country-influenced trash rock band, now mutated into something more grotesque. A legend among the fans of obscure Finnish music, The Billy Boys is aural kitsch from beyond space and time, grade B erotic science fiction and pitch-black arctic melancholy.

A total of 24 tracks, The Billy Boys Anthology consists of material that spans the entire timeline of their existence. It includes songs from the very first The Billy Boys seven-inch Mystery Train -84 as well as Mr. Johnny Helicopter's solo work from the self-titled Billy Boys 7", released two years ago.

In 1984, the duo grew into a quartet. Strengthened by the presence of Mr. Adam West and Miss Victoria Frankenstein, The Billy Boys released the Lonesome Train / Pearl of Berlin 7" and Harley Man 12" (both found on the Anthology). Throughout the nineties and noughties, Mr. Johnny Helicopter has been solely responsible for the thrilling endeavors of The Billy Boys.
