DISTEMPER - Think who is your friend? (2005-192kb-vbr)

Distemper was founded on 4th of September in 1989 in Moscow. They started out as a hardcore punk and released their first record 2 years after they founded, still not very successful. In 1992 Dazent joined them as a singer, who gives the band his characteristic hoarse voice and in 1993 they released another album. With their 1995 record Город (City) they had integrated a brass section and their style shifted to ska punk. They released 2 more albums and in 1998 they were already a widely known punk band in Russia and were the first known ska band in russia.

Distemper are known for many good live performances. From 2002 on they toured often in Europe and had many shows outside of russia. By then they were also known in Germany and released Доброе утро (Good morning) also on vinyl in Germany, which received excelleent reviews. In 2003 they had a track on the sampler Russendisko-Hits and a growing fanbase, especially in Germany. They played 100 shows outside of Russia in the next 3 years and had performances on big Festivals like Force Attack (2005 and 2007) later on.

They received the Best Ska Band of Russia award in 2006 and their 2007 album Мир создан для тебя was nominated for the Rock Alternative Music Prize as album of the year.

Distemper's music can be characterized by upbeat ska-punk. They mix fast and powerful punk rhythms with the danceable ska beats. The hoarse voice of the russian singer gives them a distinct sound. Today the line-up the band is made up of the usual drums, bass-guitar and guitar, plus a brass section consisting of a trumpet and a trombone.

Du punk russe, ça me rappelle que j'avais autrefois une compil de groupes russes avec quelques bons trucs. Faudrait que je fasse une recherche à l'occase.
Merci Mc pour celui-là.
