Viktor Tsoi was a famous Russian rock artist and leader of the group «Kino». Few bands in the history of Russian music have been more popular or have had more impact on their genre than the rock band Kino. Tsoi's innovative lyrics and music impressed the crowd. He wanted to experiment with lyrics and music in order to create something fresh that no one had ever heard before. Tsoi succeeded in his goal. The release of their 7th album "Группа крови" (Russian for Blood Type) triggered what was then called "Kinomania. The sound and lyrics of the album made Tsoi a hero among Russia's youth and "Kino" the most popular rock band ever.

Thanks Тривими :D . I love the song 'Pachka sigaret'. I used to have that on my old laptop along with a few other Kino songs (including 'Sledi za soboy'). Here's a song I still have - Kukushka (Cuckoo). This was also covered by Zemfira.

There are absolutely loads of mp3s on mirkino.net (http://www.mirkino.net).

And as far as Kino covers go, I love Zdob şi Zdub version of 'Videli Noch'. I'll put it online as soon as I'm somewhere with an internet connection that works for more than a minute at a time.

When I have written about the "second style", it was inexact definition. The "second style"- are old songs of "KINO" less known than songs from an album " Gruppa krovi ". I like this almost acoustic sound. Alyuminievye ogurtsy, Vos`miklassnitsa, Bezdel`nik 2, Prosto hochesh..., Moi druzya it`s songs from the first album of group titled "45". This disk was made with help from Boris Grebenshchikov and "Aquarium".

I am glad if you liked this song, Nikki!
Note: Victor Tsoi's mum has not died. I frequently met her earlier. She worked as the teacher in my school.
The story of the cover from the site of group Brazzaville:

"We recorded a version of a song called Star Called Sun. It was written by Viktor Tsoi from the band Kino. I used his chords and melodies and wrote my own lyrics. Although his lyrics were beautiful, I felt that they would lose a lot in the translation when trying to fit them to the music so I wrote a song about my mother’s death while preserving the theme of stars and the the sun. The refrain of my version is “There’s one million stars, for every little grain of sand down there”. That was a concept that had been obsessing me ever since I heard about it on the BBC. I was happy that I was finally able to work it into a song.
We shot a video for Star Called Sun. It was shot by a French epicurian swinger by the name of Emanuelle Clemenceau AKA Manolete. He and his cameraman, Antoine, spent a few days with us here in Barcelona shooting. The bulk of the video will be footage of Mariona Aupi playing the role of my mother when she was young back in the early 70s. There is footage of her with a baby (meant to be me), sparklers etc. I have yet to see the video but I’m sure it will be beautiful if I know Manolete."

Here's my translation

A STAR CALLED THE SUN

Pure-white snow, silver ice
On the ground speckled with cracks
Like a patchwork blanket, there lies
A city encircled in tracks

And above we see the floating clouds
Blocking the heavenly lights
And above we see the yellow smoke
The city's lived two thousand nights
Right under the rays of the star
Which we call the Sun

And two thousand years of war
A war without meaning or cause
A war as a trade for the young
A remedy that heals all the flaws

Crimsoning, crimsoning blood
In an hour it's only the earth
In two hours we see the flowers abloom
Three hours pass, and we see the rebirth
And the warmth of the rays of the star
Which we call the Sun

And we know that it has always been so
That the Fate always favours the one
Who stays true to his innermost law
And who died when his days just begun

He no longer can recall "yes" or "no"
He no longer sees the names or the ranks
And can simply reach the stars, as though
He believes they're not delusional pranks
And can fall down, singed by the star
Which we call the Sun

Wow!

Thanks allot for that translation - as it not only shows a great knowledge of Russian and English language - but a knowledge of poetry as well.
