Although sales never came up to par compared to 2003’s Beatitude, the 2007 full-length from Finnish crazies Pepe Deluxé was by far their greatest achievement to date. Critics gave it an Emma (the Fin Grammy), but a lack of US distribution meant few outside of Europe knew it existed, which is a shame because the beating heart of the record was largely influenced by the American psychedelic movement of the late ‘60s. These three videos will tell you their story.

Pepe Deluxé - “Mischief Of Cloud 6”

Pepe Deluxé - “Go For Blue”

Pepe Deluxé - “Pussycat Rock”
