Yet, somehow, there was a demand for this very specific flair of innocence and frankness, and while nothing he did past his debut album Container ever had the staying power of such tunes as Thor's Magic Bathtub, Cull Streak or Starcell U.K., Esa still managed to keep crafting away, even with a very visible - and heavy - albatross around his neck.
Now, close to two decades since the release of Container, where do we find Esa at? On Bandcamp, releasing records with no promotion, of course! Approach him and ask him to play your favourite tune of his at a future gig - you might or might not recognize it. Or he might not have it. Either way, Esa will do his utmost to keep himself entertained during the set, without turning into a best-of jukebox effort.
