Legendary Finnish punk band Pertti Kurikan Nimipäivät (better known in these parts as PKN) have been selected for their home country’s televised Eurovision Song Contest process and have made it through to represent their country! Congratulations!
Read our recent interview with the band here!
Brought to worldwide attention by the fantastic documentary about their lives called ‘The Punk Syndrome’, Pertti Kurikan Nimipäivät have all grown up with learning difficulties and disabilities and have found expression, release and noise in punk rock. The film tells the story of their lives and the band and is a must see.
Last December they toured the UK with Hard Skin for the second time and the excitement and energy they generate from the stage will now be televised across the world!
This could well be the most punk rock event of 2015. Pertti Kurikan Nimipäivät MUST WIN.
