Hello my little Mercury …

I have wanted to write to you for so long … I was looking for words and clumsily building expressions, secretly hoping that someday my letter will be published to you on adme.ru and dozens of readers will write “This is so inspiring!”. But then I realized that I really didn’t want this at all. I wanted you to forget what britishwave.ru, adme.ru and just “www” in any form are.

You are already changing the fourth headphones for this month and I don’t blame you at all. You get bored with your homemade “cool riffs” and “like these parties”. Yes, and night hangs in YouTube – this is also okay, even despite the fact that you do not go to school, because you sleep off. Would YouTube be in my youth – I would do that too.

We must try to distinguish good performers from bad ones. Interview with Selfieman

Selfieman is a new project of multi-instrumentalist Nikolai Stravinsky, a member of such groups as Cockroaches !, Missiles from Russia and Fairy Dragee.

Selfieman’s debut album, consisting of 8 tracks, was recorded in February-August 2014 at studios in Dusseldorf and Moscow, and was called “Transparent Things”.

The presentation of the disc took place in Moscow and St. Petersburg in November 2014 with the participation of Evgeny Ryakhovsky and Sergey Kivin from the Animal DzhaZ group, as well as Alexey Continue reading

The Beatles 100 Best Songs

The legendary Beatles band originated in 1959 in the UK, in the city of Liverpool. The very first line-up of the group included Paul McCartney (bass, guitar, vocals), John Lennon (guitar, vocals), George Harrison (guitar, vocals), Stuart Sutcliff (bass), Pete Best (drums).
At first, the group was known only in Liverpool, then, when in 1960 the musicians left for Germany, they were attracted to the attention of Tony Sheridan, who at that time was a very famous rock and roll performer. Together with The Beatles, Sheridan recorded the studio album Tony Sheridan and The Beatles. It was then that in the creative biography of The Beatles the first serious debut at the international level took place.
After a joint project with Sheridan, Brian Epstein, the owner of the record store, became interested in the Continue reading
