"We always thought Elonkorjuu was the heaviest album in the early '70s from Finland. But Charlies' album features loud and wild guitars, screaming vocals, and can easily be described as the most outrageous Finnish album of the '70s not far away from Jimi Hendrix and Cream. Buttocks is a heavy, hypnotic and progressive with amazing guitar work from Eero Ravi, the musical soul of the band. So the Finnish scene had much more to offer back in the early '70s beside Wigwam and Tasavallan Presidenti. They have recorded Buttocks for Love Records. Mika Kaurismäki (film director/producer) wrote: 'I had already started to discover blues music, John Mayall, Jimi Hendrix, Cream and others, so it was quite logical, that I became of a fan of Charlies. In Lahti, we thought Charlies was the best band in Finland.' Charlies played the famous Ruisrock festival in 1970. What a great band this is. Their first album Musiikkia elokuvasta Julisteiden liimaajat will be released early next year. Buttocks is so good and rare that is deserves a good reissue. The album comes with many extras such as photos and extensive liner notes. Dave Lindholm (musician) wrote: 'Charlies was the first big Finnish rock band for me. They played loud and rough. They looked like men, not popstars. They played the music I love. Could I ask for more? Well, I didn't!' 500 numbered copies on 180 gram vinyl, in a heavy sleeve."
