Stuffography Boris Plus

This is where the madness happens.

Never heard it. The illustrious k.p.tikka-ri (mightiest lingham in the land 'o the Finns) reports, "The double-album Performance Allowed is an acoustic (?) gig of BG, Maik & Viktor at a place called Sosnovy Bor (pine forest), a nuclear power plant west from St. Petersburg...."

Sergei Kuryokhin and BG go hunting for magic mushrooms in St. Peterburg's sewers. The question, however, is how the deformed organ-and-Fender-guitar growth they found ever saw the light of day. Like biting into a moldy pirozhok. Tfooo.

Sergei Kuryokhin and Boris. Mad washing machines in the next apartment. It's a one-track extravaganza of vibrating suds. It's the album that cleans your socks and hangs the fans out to dry. Sure, the first track sucks, but the rest of the album… Let's put it this way, if they played organ music at divorce court, this is what it would sound like (somewhere around minute 19 would be perfect)…

This is the first Mit'ki collection. Boris sings one song. As a collection, it's infinitely inferior to the other two Mit'ki collections.

Boris with Makarevich. Lovely but non-essential live performance of Boris plus the not-Akvarium leader of Mashina Vremeni (22 December, 1996, Moscow). Excellent acoustic versions of Boris songs; the Mashina Vremeni songs are not nearly as good. Worth it if you're a guitar player looking for clean one- or two-guitar versions.

This is the second album of Mit'ki songs. A great collection. Everyone sounds great, not just Boris. The four biggest-of-wigs on this collection are BG, V. Butusov (Nautilus Pompilius), Y. Shevchuk (DDT), and Chizh (Chizh & Co.) There are others, but we don't know who they are. Except for one, Aleksei Khvostenko (Khvost), who wrote that song "The City" that Boris sings from time to time. Guess what, Khvost sings it on this collection, and he stinks.

Inscrutably weird Sergei Kuryokhin condescends to Popsa? Ни фига себе! But all true...in what could be construed as as a homage to pop trends of the past 30 years from Art Rock to New Wave to Euro-beat. BG's only along for the ride—contributing just two English-language tracks—but the result is a lark, a tickle, a romp, a giggle, a goose. Recommended for those that like the "in-between" tracks on Triangle.

The third in the star-studded "Mit'ki Songs" series, another great collection (not quite as good as the second). We gurus who served time in Vladivostok can't not have a soft spot in our hearts for a lot of these songs, because they are about our seaman buddies on the Pacific coast. Boris sings two songs, both swell (neither about Vladivostok). If you can imagine a mess of contemporary "alternative" American musicians singing WWI (or earlier) patriotic, sailor, etc. songs, you have an idea what this feels like to a Russian.

Boris with Deadushki. Industrial remixes with Boris's assistance (he resang most of the vocals) of old Akvarium songs. Supposedly dedicated to BG for his 45th birthday. Mixed-down by Paul Kendall in "Mute Studios," London. Paul is known for his work with the likes of Nick Cave, Depeche Mode, Erasure, and Nine Inch Nails.

Boris & an all non-Russkii band perform adaptations of traditional Tibetan Buddhist mantras. Seriously. I'm getting mine tomorrow. If you can't find me the day after tomorrow, you may safely presume I have gathered sufficient merit and escaped the chains of Maya. Check out the full multimedia presentation on the amazing Planet Aquarium.

Finally released via net in 2001, Boris recorded these songs in 1991 with the late Sergei Kuryokhin. It's just a theory, but maybe they were released in advance of George Harrison's death as a pre-death tribute. Certainly there's a Beatles thing half-happening here.

Boris has teamed up with Gabrielle Roth to record a follow-up to the "Russian-Abyssian Orchestra" album Bardo. Will it live up to the original Lhar-a-hlar? Will we hear more about dead American President Monroe-monroe-sighhhhh? A degenerate subsection of Bodhisattvi is desperate to find out.
