Punk

Braty Hadjukiny, The Ukrainians, VV.

Borshch. Parazita Kusok.


Each performance of the group is just a violent throw out of superfluous emotions, ideas, impulses from within each listener. And, however surprising it might appear, – a powerful generator of calm. However, it is special calm – after such vigorous tension, it is not that you do not want anything, but simply you have no force to want something.

Braty Hadyukiny. Na!Zhyvo.


Punk music, played by Braty Gadiukiny has, so to say, national colour. In a seem to be simple everyday stories, cocktail of dirt and trick make us to laugh at ourselves.

Braty Hadyukiny. Schaslyvoi dorohy! /cassette/. (Good Riddance!)


Audio cassette/ ..The forth album of Hadiukiny. Grown-up album.
Domestic price: 138.60UAH, International price: $9.90USD

Brem Stoker. Chysto Ekolohichno. (Just Ecologically)


Actually, today this cocktail contains even more joyful mood and mockery – both at themselves and at everything around. Well, and good moods in combination with rock-n-roll punk and city folklore – yields as a result the wonderful energy drink allowed for consumption at any age.

Vopli Vidopliassova. Abo Abo. /anniversary release, digi-pack/.


The album "Abo Abo" is a concert record made in France at the "Eurockeens de Belfort" festival as long ago as in June, 1991. But not only. This is also the first compact disc of the group – previous records were published on cassettes. In addition, it was released abroad – a rare bird for those times, we should say.

Vopli Vidopliassova. Krayina mriy. /anniversary release, digi-pack/. (Land of Dreams)


Any music, if there is place for ethnic motives, moods in it – changes forever, and changes the listener. For the best. Because such music acquires new dimensions of depth, it is connected with the important and irreplaceable space – in which the root of culture and worldview of that or another people lives.

Vopli Vidopliassova. Chudovy Svit. /digi-pack/. (The Wonderful World)


Even though "Wonderful World" seems to continue the trend of combining rock aesthetics with ethnics – now it sounds different. It sounds as if the band was able to rethink and synthesize all the previous groundwork – thus, when Oleh Skrypka defines this new piece as "velvet symphonic punk", that is not that much of an exaggeration..
Domestic price: 208.60UAH, International price: $14.90USD

WhaTsup. Yak vsi. /digi-pack/. (As Everyone)


In fact, this album is a folder containing two debut pieces at once. The main one – from the WhaTsup project, while another third of the volume is their side project "Fekaladka". Well, Kharkiv musicians like doing it differently from the rest – thus, the title of the album can be viewed as banter...

Gogol Bordello. Multi Kontra Culti vs. Irony.


During the recent years, Gogol Bordello has become, probably, one of the most popular eccentric bands in the entire world – while it plays not quite, so to speak, commercial music. Though, on the other hand, in these songs so much is mixed that the definition "gipsy ska-punk" does not convey even a half of it...
Domestic price: 250.60UAH, International price: $17.90USD

Gogol Bordello. Pura Vida Conspiracy.


...cocktails by Gogol Bordello become more transparent. Not so much quiet, rather – more considered, balanced internally. It seems to be a carnival of weird masks, behind which the simple idea lurks: no one makes you agree to everyday mediocrity. You can do it – otherwise.
Domestic price: 222.60UAH, International price: $15.90USD

Vasyl Hontarsky, Yuriy "HoboT" Galinin. Vasya and Hobot.


The album is really queer, its style is "for one’s soul". To the question "for whose one?" we answer: a hippie’s one, whatever this word may mean. It is a man's dialogue with the air, when the woman has already left, but her image is still melting in the mirror. And you are in the middle of all that – what other explanations do you need? There is nothing. A hangover philosophical song.
Domestic price: 320.60UAH, International price: $22.90USD

Vasyl Hontarsky, Yuriy "HoboT" Galinin. Vasya and Hobot. (premium release, digi-pack).


Vasyl Hontarsky's solo album (premium release, digi-pack). Acoustic variations on the theme of the most famous pieces by "Vasya Club", folk songs and rowdy cover versions of hits by Eric Clapton, Tom Waits and Goran Bregovic.

Esthetic Education. Face Reading. /digi-pack/


The cultivation of taste must simply be carried out - it must continue, and it must be carried out not in a separate point of space or in the framework of a certain musical style or trend.
Domestic price: 208.60UAH, International price: $14.90USD

Esthetic Education. Leave Us Alone.


From the very beginning these people promised that they would compose a high-quality European music, and to my mind it is exactly the thing they are busy with at the moment. This maxi-single, I think, is another confirmation of this fact.

Serhiy Zhadan, Sobaki V Kosmose. Sportyvnyy klub armiji. (Sports Club of the Army)


...Consequently, we have in one pot epatage, sarcasm, philosophy, lyric poetry, ska, reggae, punk, folk singing and just drive – both in words and in music. And if you prefer not too trimmed art – this is the album that should not miss your attention.
Domestic price: 208.60UAH, International price: $14.90USD

Sobaki V Kosmose, Serhiy Zhadan. Byjsya za neji. /book-comics-CD/. (Fight for Her)


Serhiy Zhadan is one of the most "flexible" contemporary authors in Ukraine in what relates to the means of communication with the public. This is true both about live performances, and about the ways of, actually, publications. And "Fight for Her" is just another experiment of the kind. Cool poetry, tough, "raw" music, and interesting graphic...

Yuri Zdorenko & Hash. Na zdorov'ja! /digi-pack/. (To Health!)


Yuriy Zdorenko & Hash spin up – and in quite an unexpected way. Actually, what could seem after release of their debut mini-album? That Zdorenko decided to cook another poignantly hot dish based on the recipe tested in the "Borsch" project. And what actually turns out?
Domestic price: 208.60UAH, International price: $14.90USD

Orest Lyuty. A ya – ne moskal. /digi-pack/. (And I am not a Moscovite)


..Anyway, the album "And I am not a Moscovite" convincingly illustrates how cleverly one can make fun of the Soviet influence and chanson (in the post-Soviet sense) miasma in the modern Ukrainian culture without resorting to brutal methods. Well, almost without it. Only by irony and, above all, self-irony – sometimes quite tough...
Domestic price: 278.60UAH, International price: $19.90USD

Liapis Trubetskoy. Zolotye jajcy. (Golden eggs)


Their music is the mixture of everything that gets into your hands and is reinforced by a powerful and skilful spiritual section. You can find practically everything here, starting with grunge and ending with raggy, and all that is fully stuffed with Byelorussian outlook and sense of humour...
Domestic price: 208.60UAH, International price: $14.90USD

Antin Mukharsky, HraBlya band. Mama-Anarkhia. /digi-pack/. (Mama the Anarchy)


Today it is called Severe Ukrainianization. Because one can definitely say: this punk chanson does not care about tolerance, its objective is to extract to light of the day all the obsolete cliches and to pretty well trample on them. In a loud, energetic way – and with such joyful rage that will make one either writhe, or eventually start laughing and recover...
Domestic price: 278.60UAH, International price: $19.90USD

Oneyroid. Khoden'. /digi-pack/.


This is music with its own identity. And it's not only about interesting arrangements – listen to the lyrics: this is not simulation of rural folklore, this is its urban rethinking, but not limited to the city. Somewhere there, a universal key to the roots reside...
Domestic price: 256.20UAH, International price: $18.30USD

Ot Vinta. Pilotka. /digi-pack/. (The Forage Cap)


..there is so much drive that one can hardly believe its "acousticity". And one of the causes of such sound is the truly rich set of instruments used by the musicians during the recording (guitar, banjo, harmonica, kazoo, ukulele, flute, kozobass, xylophone, etc.). Very rich and bright – just like always with "Ot Vinta"..
Domestic price: 306.60UAH, International price: $21.90USD

Pan Pupec. Pan Pupets.


In music, the group very skillfully combines absolutely different styles – from hardcore and ska to reggae with funk. Add here the expressive manner of performance with elements of dramatized farce – and believe me, you won’t be bored. But then you will have to do something with all of this adrenaline released...
Domestic price: 208.60UAH, International price: $14.90USD

Perkalaba. !chydro /digi-pack/


Perkalaba unexpectedly, without any announcement produced its third album. Well, and it was right to do that – it has been long time already that we've been willing to hear something new from the spheres of absurd folk, and Perkalaba still stays virtually the main Ukrainian guide in the wilderness of these unexplored paths and ladders.

Oleh Skrypka, Les Podervyansky. Humanists.


The performance concert by Oleh Skrypka and Les Podervyansky "Humanists" took place in December, 2000. Actually, 10 years after, in January, 2011, the performance got a new life... This recording is the case of an exclusive creative collaboration of two personalities significant for the modern Ukrainian culture.

Yevhen Rohachevsky. Yickij Aun. (2CD).


Rogachevsky is the current guitarist of "VV". Starting from as long back as 1998. But he was also engaged in music earlier – actually, fruits of those exercises are collected in this double disk. We admit – these fruits are strange, and not everyone will enjoy tasting them. But if you like minimalism, punk, ska and rock-and-roll – by no means pass by it.

Rura. Rura.


In order to make it a bit clearer at once, we will say the following: the group Rura was assisted in preparation and release of this album by, among others, the groups Perkalaba and Pan Pupets. And not only (im)morally but also physically...
Domestic price: 208.60UAH, International price: $14.90USD

Rura. Moja ljubov. (My Love)


Extremely fast, really – it seems that there are yet no analogues to such speed on the Ukrainian scene. Just a few months have passed from the moment when Rura released her debut album – and here we already have the second album, and active work on the third album is in process. Surprising, but also nice capacity – isn't it?

Sertsevyj Napad. Golden $hits.


"Sertsevy Napad" is only five years old, and now you see the first official album by the group. But the guys decided not to wait long and to start from the middle – therefore, the disc is not simply an album, but a sort of a "the best" collection. That is what the title hints at, not without irony – "Golden $hits".
Domestic price: 208.60UAH, International price: $14.90USD

Skryabin. Khrobak. (re-edition). /digi-pack/. (Worm)


There is quite a great temptation to consider "Worm" a turning point album in Skryabin's work. At all events, against the background of all previous works it stands absolutely aloof. Skryabin abandons the light, dancing direction and, to a certain extent, goes back to the initial gloomy style – but already at a different quality level...
Domestic price: 208.60UAH, International price: $14.90USD

Faktychno Sami. Kosmichnyj vakuum. (Space Vacuum)


lately it is well-aimed – a distracting blow on mind, a sort of that it is a logical riddle – but actually all this is directed at the emotional body, and in order to understand and get penetrated with it – it is not necessary to understand. the other way round, you should not understand – and then everything becomes clear. in a nutshell – zen. somewhat technogenic entourage...

The Ukrainians. Respublika.


The overwhelming majority of songs are Ukrainian folk songs known to everybody. But you may never have heard them being performed in such a manner so far. If we mix this cuisine up on hard and forceful guitar reefs, as well as on violent drums, we will get a cocktail that blows up right before our eyes.
Domestic price: 152.60UAH, International price: $10.90USD

The Yurcash. Menuets. Tjulpany V TselaFani. (Menuets. Tulips In CellaPhane)


Yurcash really was not going to disappoint all those whom he managed to surprise so positively. The second album is also a sort of a "hodgepodge" of different, almost incompatible styles and moods, from hardcore to acid chanson. Though, there are now fewer "heavy" music remarks – however, it does not seem to be a severe loss. And the banter in the texts – has become more varied, diversified.
