Nuclear Netclub Updates

  • Added a page for Wigwam and related artists on the Finnish Charts. I'm going to remove references to chart positions from the pages of individual albums and singles, since many of them have been based on insufficient and, sometimes, misinterpreted or erroneous sources. Up until the 1990s, there were several competing record charts in Finland.
