BSWC One-a-Day: Nambavan - Otar Kushanashvile

Direct from the Russian Federation Republic of Tatarstan via WM Recordings comes Nambavan with his release, Sex Drugs and Russian Girls [WM031]. This is an absolutely wild outing that follows his WM release, Chechnya on a Dance Floor [WM022].

There isn't really much I can add to this post other than to tell you that I love the concept of electro-disco with Russian lyrics...it doesn't get any better.

The release notes do give us a little on Nambavan:
Nowadays he works with his pc, a $80 guitar and a Casio keyboard. His musical diet consists of Blondie, the Sex Pistols, Cerrone, Sonic Youth, Jimi Hendrix, Iggy Pop, The Doors, Giorgio Moroder, Donna Summer, Madonna, Supermax, and the Bee Gees.
And from MySpace:
At his home in Kazan, Republic of Tatarstan, where few make their own music, Bilalov started out by enrolling in a music school to learn the guitar, but was expelled for not being able to remember songs.
The world is a wonderful place.
