Russian Rockers Head for Warsaw

Veteran Russian rockers DDT are appearing at Warsaw’s Kongresowa Hall on Oct. 22. The band, which has been applying its musical blowtorch to every facet of life in Russia for over 25 years, started out in the southern Russian city of Ufa, hometown of vocalist Yuri Shevchuk, in the early 1980s. DDT first came to the attention of the general public in 1982 when they won a competition for up and coming young artists. But before he could sign on with an official label, Shevchuk was given the word to give his band mates the flick and follow official songwriting “guidelines.” Shevchuk refused, consigning himself and his band to Russia’s then burgeoning underground music scene. DDT’s lucky break came when communism in Russia went belly up in 1991. They suddenly found themselves enormously popular, with their songs now being given extensive airplay.

DDT are now one of the most popular rock bands in Russia. Their music and lyrics blend Western rock influences with Russian folk, classical and sacred music. The group is planning to release a new album in the fall. For more information, go to www.makroconcert.pl
