Хлам (2)

Хлам (2)

Real Name:
Khlam (Хлам, meaning "junk" or "trash") is a Russian psychedelic punk-jazz band from Bryansk, formed by Vova Terekh in 1988. Inspired by Western rock, heavy metal, punk, new wave music and performances of Soviet rockers, notably Zvuki Mu, he formed a conceptual collective HLAM and started playing radical and avant-garde garage punk. The band was praised both by Russian and foreign critics as one of the most original and unorthodox punk collectives from ex-USSR. They performed with many other notable bands, including Polite Refusal and Notchnoi Prospekt.

Khlam went on an extended hiatus while Vova Terekh worked on different projects, produced records for Distemper (2) and Mister Twister, and also acted as a tour manager for Matrossskaya Tishina. More than a decade after their heyday, Terekh decided to reunite the band with a new line-up: sax player Sergey Letov, jazz drummer Rafkhat Badretdinov, and contrabassist Vadim Pravilov, occasionally joined by Alexei Tegin on guitar. Raf and Terekh also formed RИVUЩИЕ STRUNЫ with Alexei Bortnichuk in 2006.

Vladimir Terekh – vocals, lyrics
