There are at least two bands with the same name. 1) Agents is a Finnish band formed in 1979, playing rautalanka, schlager and rock music. The head figure and musical director of the band is solo guitarist Esa Pulliainen. Agents was founded in 1979 on the ruins of Tuomari Nurmio's band Köyhien ystävät. All former members of Köyhien ystävät, with the exception of Tuomari Nurmio, played in the original Agents. The band also recruited Esa's brother Kai Pulliainen and keyboard player Jukka Ollila.
