Turnaround is a Heavy Blues-Rock/Progressive Rock trio from Kiev, UA

At the head of the Kyiv trio, performing heavy blues-rock with a strong influence of early British progressive, is the irrepressible Max Tovstyj, a permanent member of many bands (Crawls) whose material recorded live at his studio, Broken Bricks. Being a native tradition of the "golden" age hippies, Turnaround reflect the musical eclecticism that glorious time: next to the typical blues standard may attend a 10-minute art-rock suite, and tricked arrangements compensated rock and roll feeling. After the release of their debut album and EP Turnaround is now ready to begin recording their second full-length, promising to go deep into the progressive jungle.


Poster by Mila "Hopeless" (Moscow, RU)

Drop Sum is Taras Yakobchuk (Kiev, Ukraine). Yes, that’s right – from air. Microphone noise, room air static and manipulations with its properties led to the creation of a tiny program, that extracts harmonics from ambience noise. Furthermore, these harmonics are used to build the chords in pure intonation. Skipping technical details, let’s just say that the process of creating such music is generally identical to the listening process. John Cage clearly demonstrated that any noise can be music if it has a listener. Therefore, music is just a matter of a starting point in your system of values.

If you’re looking for the right place to play this music, it is likely that it will be the majestic dome of a giant telescope, or the pavilion of the mission control center on a space station from the future. Distinctly futuristic landscape, with smooth architectural forms in bright colors. Idyllic picture of a bright future, with no place for imperfection. 


Riot Season news & Mainliner UK tour


'Massacre-Rock Deviant Inquisitors' (LP)

release info:

If you really ever fancied getting some true menacing power juice wherein nothing is to gaze at with hygienico-aseptic envy, it should be then heavily recommended that you experiment these Deviationist french 'garçons', supreme Heads Extraordinaires of San Pedro Ville and whose futuristic morality & vision led to the founding of the mysterious outfit GUNSLINGERS ** MASSACRE-ROCK DEVIANT INQUISITORS. Nobody's ever really known about what has to be considered as the accurate band name—are both groups of words switchable or only one ?

Such sharp connection between the terms would indeed almost make us define the band as being such as to require battling with the fluids of naming mayhem by use of avant-garde non-sense with relentless precision. Hey Slingers, come here a minute! make your way forward to have us now explore further into the insanity orbit of yours

Freakin' weirdos, this 3rd sonic missive (following 'No More Invention' & 'Manifesto Zero') is a frantic outburst of unsubmissive tonal hallucination that reaches to the Parapet of acid proto-psych'punk and fully generatorized under the cunted mark of 'alchemical free-form' ; such immediate perilous activator of the jubilant excitation underlying the phantasmatic primitive mind. Its dynamics is infernal, shiny & oily, sudden & impulsive, serpentine & excavated, opaque white & translucent crimson combined within an aboriginal fire's luminescence.

GR's 6-string visionary electric monster is an insurgent bottomless creature whose arousing & provoking distorted deployment shoots at everything that DOESN'T move or doesn't get right into the accidental flow's subtlety ; then vertiginous riffage & master anti-riffage (laden with urgent electrifying fuzz-wha) merge savagely into one another : the kind of shamanic rapture that gets you triply high as Matthieu Canaguier's Thunderbass & Antoine Hadjioannou's Prophetic Beats expand massively into a psychotic fierce drive all the way, spreading pulsating emanations like scorching comets, and meeting in ethereal pathways with GR's venomous disenchanted-&-no-less-magnetizing voice which pours down arguments like swirls of traumatized sputum. In one word, these Slingers serve you another authentically twisted self-confessed disaster, a 2-part fearsome exploration that will, once again, make your eyes bleed.

New Riot Season Tee

"Tis summertime and it's time for a new RS t-shirt design. This time i've gone for a local theme, an old school Black Country skyline and a revamped RS logo. The image/design is aged to look worn in, you can view it in the images tab
Printed on brown/chocolate coloured Gildan soft style shirts with white and gold front print.
For those that don't know, the Black Country is the area of middle England where I live. It's named after the thick black smoke that polluted the air back in the old days from all the industrial factories etc"
