“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

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.

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

UNDER SKY OF AQUARIUM

Sometimes, in order to say in concise and succinct phrases about a group, its place in the musical horizon, and its role in the life of fans, you need to try to summarize all the many years of the work of the team. Or you can just give the group members the opportunity to say their own creation. Boris Grebenshchikov called the Aquarium group a shining beast that brings people something that they lacked, which they themselves did not know about. In this one phrase, the whole secret of the popularity of “Aquarium” is revealed.

Looking for like-minded people
The chronicle of the Aquarium group opens in 1972. Since then, dozens of famous musicians from different countries have visited the band – Vsevolod Gakkel, Sergey Kurekhin, Oleg Sakmarov, Boris Rubekin, Alexander Lyapin, Dzhivan Continue reading
