SEBASTIANS - "BLUE BY SEBASTIANS" (1993)

Sebastians were an English language Czech band. I have to say I'd rather listen to bands who sing in their native languages, but in this case I will make an exception, because their sole album is just beautiful. Ten graceful and well-played songs in the Madchester style,
recommended to those who are into early Charlatans and Inspiral Carpets.

Line-up: 
David Volenec / "David Wrdisty" (vocals)
Dušan Lipert / "D.L. Beauty" (guitar)
Jan Čechtický / "Ian Von Czechticky" (bass guitar)
Pavel Pelán / "Paul Penal" (drums)
Štěpán Tůma / "Stephen Young" (guitar)
Producer: Colin Stuart

AGATA KRISTI - "POZORNAYA ZVEZDA" (1993)

Original band name: Агата Кристи
Original album title: Позорная звезда

Agati Kristi was one of the classic bands of Russian rock music.
They were founded in Yekaterinburg in 1987 by brothers Gleb and Vadim Samoylov, both singers and guitar players, and keyboardist Aleksandr Kozlov.

Their first three albums were a mix of post-punk and occasionally kitsch hard rock guitars, I honestly don't like them that much, but from this one onwards, their sound changed into a fascinating electronic rock influenced by the Cure and the Madchester scene
"Pozornaya zvezda" was a huge commercial success, and the romantic anthem "Kak na voyne" is one of the most popular Russian songs of the time. If you like dark, atmospheric, and danceable music, don't miss this one!
