<<«I meant by change a liberation of consciousness from all kinds of dogmas, from the stereotype of a small, worthless, indifferent person who is constantly looking ‘Upwards’. I was waiting for a change in consciousness, not specific laws, decrees, appeals, plenums and congresses»<<

𝐊𝐢𝐧ó ( КИННО) was a Russian rock band that emerged in the Soviet Union in the 1980s, part of the 𝐋𝐞𝐧𝐢𝐧𝐠𝐫𝐚𝐝 𝐑𝐨𝐜𝐤 𝐂𝐥𝐮𝐛 and led by 𝐕𝐢𝐤𝐭𝐨𝐫 𝐓𝐬𝐨𝐢 (Виктор Цой), author of almost all lyrics and music.
The band Kino started with guitarist Alexei Rybin, drummer Oleg Valinsky and Viktor Tsoi on bass; initially the band was called Garin I Giperboloidy (Garin and the Hyperboloids), based on a science fiction novel by Alexei Tolstoy.
One of the best-known albums is Blood Group (Группа крови) [Gruppa Krovi] from 1988 and the film Needle (Иглa) [igla], starring Viktor Tsoi.
It was one of the most important groups during the 𝟏𝟗𝟖𝟎𝐬 in the USSR, influencing a generation of young people and musicians.
The end of the group came with the tragic 𝐝𝐞𝐚𝐭𝐡 of𝐕𝐢𝐤𝐭𝐨𝐫 𝐓𝐬𝐨𝐢 on August 15, 1990 on the outskirts of Riga in a traffic accident, when his car collided with a bus. Tsoi had allegedly fallen asleep at the wheel.
One of the band’s most emblematic figures and focal point was Viktor Tsoi, a singer and guitarist of Korean descent on his father’s side, born in Leningrad (now St. Petersburg), was the soul of Kino from its foundation, and when he died, the group ceased to exist with him.
Proof that Viktor Tsoiis irreplaceable is the concert given in 2021 at the Symphonic Cinema in Krasnodar, by the remaining members of Kino, the band played and Tsoi’s original voice sounded on stage performing the songs as if he had never left.
