Immortal band - timeless songs
The songs of Kino remain popular even today. It is one of the brightest and most legendary Soviet bands of the 1980s that influenced the formation and development of the music industry. Already at the start of their creative path, the first members of the band made a pleasant impression on Boris Grebenshchikov. It was he who advised replacing the complex name 'Garin and the Hyperboloids' with something simple and one-syllable, and helped in recording the album. At first, the band was known in a small circle. The album and the songs went unnoticed and did not bring the ambitious musicians success and popularity.
A few years later Viktor Tsoi and Yuri Kasparian started to record the second compilation. Grebenshchikov continued to play the role of producer. He invited some musicians he knew to join the team. After this album was created, the final group was formed. The musicians became not only the opening act, but also the laureates of the Leningrad Rock Club festival. The band grew in popularity and fame, and the notion of "movie mania" emerged among admirers.
Legendary Kino songs:
- "Band of Blood";
- "Pack of Cigarettes";
- "A Star Called the Sun";
- "In Our Eyes";
- "When Your Girlfriend's Sick";
- "Mama, We're All Crazy" and many others.
Denmark, France, America - they performed on different stages. With time, Kino were compared to the Beatles and Doors Western bands, who are rightly called "timeless". The band has released 8 studio albums and 4 singles. Some of the compositions appeared after the death of the leader and soloist Victor Tsoi. The songs were not only played on stages and players, they were used in movies, and later - in video games.
