“MOVIE”. IF THERE IS POWDER, GIVE FIRE

The Kino group was destined to become a rock legend, not only in the homeland of this musical style in England, but in the Soviet Union, moreover, from the 1980s. The team got into the cultural mainstream of that period. After the death of the frontman and vocalist of the group Viktor Tsoi, the collective ceased to exist, but this huge empty musical niche still remains empty.

Timeless music
The relevance of the group is beyond doubt, new generations accept and understand the work of “Cinema” in their own way, but invariably replenish the ranks of age-related fans of the collective. This is the rare case when the music is out of time and space, and the formed image and style of the group over the years is perceived more meaningfully. Continue reading

METALLICA – HEAVY METAL MUSHKETERS

Fans of the legendary Metallica band are so dedicated and uncompromising that it can be compared to religious adoration. Legends circulated about their booze during the tour, and journalists called the group “Alcoholic.”

Among all this confusion bordering on lawlessness, the group received its share of hardships and tragic events – car accidents, death, broken limbs, burns. These events were a test of strength for the group. They survived and became the gold standard of heavy metal, playing “honestly and selfishly” in the apt expression of frontman James Hetfield.

From Danish Origins
It all started in small Denmark, where Lars Ulrich, the drummer of Metallica, was born. Since childhood, keen Continue reading

GENESIS – Pioneers of Art Rock

The development of rock music in general and its intellectual direction in particular is impossible to imagine without the British band Genesis. It was she who turned into the channel of epic art the avant-garde progressive rock, which was opened by Pink Floyd. If other groups followed the direct connection of classical motifs with modern music, Genesis became the pioneers of art rock – a completely new musical art.

British Genesis
Five members of the Genesis group, who stood at its origins, have become one of the most respected figures in the international rock movement. They began their rehearsals while still young students. This happened within the walls of the famous English Charterhouse school. The original composition of Genesis was formed through the merger of the two school groups. Peter Gabriel was engaged in vocals, Tony Banks became the keyboard player, Anthony’s Genesis Phillips became the guitarist, Mike Rutherford played the bass guitar, and Chris Stewart conjured the drum Continue reading

JOURNEY ON THE “TIME MACHINE”

It often happens that a musical group or solo artist becomes for many people a symbol of an entire era. Even personal memories seem to be decorated with their music, and it is already impossible to imagine the past decades without their songs.

Such a creative beacon was the “Time Machine” group, whose many years of work have influenced the formation of the worldview of millions of fans.

So it all began
Back in 1968, a rock band was formed within the walls of Moscow school number 19, which the students called The Kids. The current older generation remembers well that in those years there was rarely a school in which their vocal Continue reading

“FLOWERS” ON THE ROCK MUSIC CLUB

The Flowers group has earned its place in history, if only because it has become one of the first musical groups to bring rock to the stage of the Soviet Union. All Soviet non-format within the framework of mass pop culture began precisely with this group. Dozens of famous musicians and several generations of loyal fans grew up on the work of “Flowers”.

Influenced by Woodstock
Rock group “Flowers” appeared in 1969 thanks to the efforts of the student of the Institute of Foreign Languages ​​Stas Namin – the grandson of the famous Soviet party leader Anastas Mikoyan. Stas became interested in rock music early on, and gathered his first band at the Suvorov School in 1964. The hippie movement could not remain aloof from the creative nature of Namin, and shortly after the legendary festival, Stas Namin’s group “Woodstock”, he founded a group Continue reading
