Boris Grebenshikov helped the band Kino to record their songs at Andrey Tropillo's studio, among them the album Начальник Камчатки (Nachalnik Kamchatki / The Head of Kamchatki) from 1984. The history of the album cover is quite interesting. Although “Nachalnik Kamchatki” was, of course, released as a magnitizdat (reel-to-reel) album, artist (E-E) Evgenij Kozlov created a vinyl record cover for it, using his own picture from a photo shoot he arranged with Kino members for this specific purpose. Later, to celebrate the release of the magnitizdat album, Kozlov organised a performance with a “fake” vinyl record inside the real cover. more >>
