Biography

Topi Sorsakoski & Agents (1985-92, 2007) is a Finnish rock band.

Topi Sorsakoski & Agents

Agents' and Topi Sorsakoski's first common album, In Beat, was published in 1986. The album sold well and is now one of Finland's best-selling Finnish records. Hits from the album include "Surujen kitara", "Salattu Suru", "Eeva" and "Olen yksin".

In the next year, the band published another hit album, Besame Mucho. To the surprise of many, the album has no name song, instead the name is a trick played on purpose by Agents and Topi Sorsakoski. Hits from the album include "Kaksi kitaraa", "Kauan" and "Valot" (Badding's song as an instrumental version).

In 1988, the band published their third album, Pop. This album also sold well. Hits from the album include "Tyhjää", "Varjojen yö", "On kesäyö", "Jo riittää" and "Nyt kaikki muuttunut on".

In 1989, Agents did not publish a new album. The EMI record company decided to publish a collection album called Greatest Hits, which the band did not like. The collection album sold well and reached a gold record.

In 1990, Agents' and Topi Sorsakoski's last album, Half and Half, was published. Half of the album contains sung material and the other half contains Agents' rautalanka music.

Topi Sorsakoski & Agents split up in 1992 because of internal arguments. Topi had published his solo album Yksinäisyys in the previous years, which anticipated the end of the co-operation. One of the reasons was Topi Sorsakoski's financial troubles in the early 1990s, and he would have wanted higher commissions from their performances and records. In common with Topi Sorsakoski, the assisting guitarist Hans Etholén and the drummer Juha Takanen also quit the band.

Topi Sorsakoski's comeback as lead singer of Agents

Topi Sorsakoski returned as lead singer of Agents for one album and one tour. In autumn 2007, a new Agents album, based on material released by Renegades, was published. Topi Sorsakoski & Agents also performed a small tour accompanying the album.
