Aki Peltonen was born in 1963 and lives in Pori, a small town on the west coast of Finland, where he owns and runs a recording studio and a small P.A. company. Although he plays the accordion throughout, he says his main instrument is the guitar. "Just when you think it’s all over, along comes something completely unpredictable – in this case, a modest but uncompromisingly original confection that mixes Latin brass arrangements (sort of), with great drumming, medium wave radio and the many characters of the accordion. Simplicity, complexity, surprise, familiarity – and all without undue fuss. The result seems exotic and new. It is also one of those releases that just fell through the door in an unassuming package and an absolute minimum of explanation. So there’s not a lot more to say: Radio Banana is a record that wears its heart plainly on its sleeve. There’s nothing hidden. It doesn’t play by any genre rules, or fashion rules; it’s just someone’s idea of music. It’s not sampled or assembled out of parts; it’s just played, the old way, by human beings. The combination of elements may be inscrutable, but it was this combination, Aki says, that he wanted to hear."-ReR USA
