September 2002 - (Club Orlandina - Comrade Albert
Never have I seen such a bedlam before. The organizer
invited 10 bands and began a concert at 18-00. The
club is opened till 23-00. Divide that and get 30
minutes of time for each group. And now add to the
usual delay of an hour, and the sound-check, the arrival
/ departure from the stage of each musician of every
band - and what you get is just "not enough time
for someone"... So we found out that there is
some time left for 3 or 4 bands and then concert just
And so it went that way. We had to play at 22-30.
By coming to the club it turned out that we have 5!
bands in front of us in line. Some musicians, such
guys from "Jam" just turned around and left
this shitty concert. But most people stayed fighting
among each other for the place. We tried to force
our way to the stage just after "Masterskaya",
but found out that it already occupied by "Planktone".
As a result of agreement each team cut their set-list
to 25 minutes and we managed to gave a gig, though
after that we had to rush immediately to subway before
it was closed.
We played well - quickly and powerfully. Kirill missed
his beats in the very first song, but then everything
went okey. We were very surprised that upon entering
the stage we heard from a crown two vivid words -
"Black Label". But then we understood why
- after that phrase we heard another one - "Kirill
Yes, indeed, Kirill led this gig a horde of fans
and it was a pleasure for us of course. Our older
fans also had been on this concert, and that is a
pleasure too. It was the first time we shot a video
on this gig and this is very cool. I think that will
continue to do that every concert.
