"Mummi kutoo" is Finnish for "Grandma's knitting". First released in 1975 by the immortal Finnish Love Records (see ), Mummi Kutoo's self-titled debut is much more than hip psychedelic-folk rock: the album's soft dreamscape exhibits a thorough understanding of melodic orchestral pop, fragile coffeehouse jazz, dixieland, cabaree music and light AM country. Their style is a warm and charming, harmonious and nicely arranged obscure, avant-folkpop and sing-alongs, which are all taken to a deliberate hippie oddballity and a rather weird happy feeling.
The debut album was staying decades as cult classic and collector's grail. The projected second album (Mummi Kutoo & Suistomaan Pojat) never materialized, as the record company went bankrupt in 1978.
Instead, Ektro Records (see ) released Mummi Kutoo album in 2004 on CD with another 9 Mummi Kutoo bonus tracks from the era. In near future the original album will be online outlet in digital reissue label Anthology Recordings (see ).
The only possibility to hear Mummi Kutoo's later brass sound in studio quality, is Välikausitakki (LRCD 289), released in 1978 as one of the last Love Records albums.
