Rare 1995 VHS film about the Finnish label will be streamed online for the first time
Boiler Room TV has announced it’s going to stream a rare film about Finnish label Sähkö. Shot on 16mm by Jimi Tenor in 1995, the untitled work was dubbed Sähkö The Movie by the label's fans, and it’s a hard to find item only available as a VHS tape originally released by Blast First Petite.
The 44 minute film features footage of Tommi Grönlund – who founded the label in 1993 in Turku – as well as Mono Junk, Hertsi, IFÖ and the late Mika Vainio, while they variously work in the studio, hand-press limited edition vinyl or perform live.
Sähkö The Movie will stream on 10 August. In the meantime you can watch a trailer below:
