KINO – Blood Type

December 26, 2007

Kino cca. 1989

OK, this next track is the English-language version of “Gruppa Krovi” by Leningrad’s most popular 1980s rock band KINO. The Russian original is from 1988, off the LP of the same name. In January 1989 the band went to France to record a best-of type compilation for the French market (it’s called “Le Dernier Des L’Héros,” and it flopped). It was during those sessions at Studio du Val d’Orge that they’ve done “Blood Type” in English. I would guess the translation comes from Joanna Stingray, American wife of the guitar player Yuri Kasparian. He’s first left on the photo above – click to enlarge . The other members are, left to right, singer Viktor Tsoi (he died in August 1990 in a car crash in Latvia), drummer Georgy “Gustav” Guryanov and bassist Igor Tikhomirov. The track sat unreleased until 2002 when Moroz Records did a CD called “Posledniye Zapisi” (“Last Recordings”) that also featured rough versions of songs from 1989 and 1990, as well as some solo acoustic stuff by Tsoi.
