M. A. Numminen is a Finnish Phenomminen. What can I say about him and his deservedly incomparable voice? "Wovon mann nicht sprechen kann, darüber muss mann schweigen." (Vocal by M.A. Numminen, lyrics by Ludwig Wittgenstein). Listening to Numminen for the first time is like your first taste of surströmming: You want to spit it out, it stinks, you think you're gonna die, but when it's all done you keep wanting to come back for more, especially if you have the right tilbehör (onions, aqvavit...).
