Lichen Gumbo is a rock’n'roll duo from unmapped rural Finland, where mystical muddy swamps and aurora borealis lit skylines mix with low signal sitcoms from overseas. No time for mumbo jumbo, just straight forward shredding here. These songs are about existential longing for god forsaken roadhouses and weird bohemian parties. Lichen Gumbo is the sound of blasting through the dusty roads of Savo with Pappa-Tunturi. Recorded with dictaphones, tape decks, a reel to reel machine and an mp3 player bought from Lidl. From the damaged minds of Olli Aarni (Nuojuva, Ous Mal) and Ville Oinonen (Vo Motars, Tanec Hrac).
