Milk River rock and roll to throw their fans BI-2

September 19 2006


- Now Bi-2 is preparing a new album called "Milk." It will comprise 10, or maybe 11 songs.
Album will be different from previous ones, though maybe not very drastically. It is notable that the disc is made as vinyl, it has a side "A" and "B". The first will be rock and roll, punk. And the second - "bidvashnaya, partly Gothic. There is even a ballad.

- And why the album got its name?
- We thought about a lot of working titles. But they were too long or overly pathos. "Milk" - the mood of this record, but do not be confused with "get into the milk. Later came the idea to tie it to the Stanley Kubrick, to his "Clockwork Orange". From there, design and style of the album.

- I heard that he was going to Germany?

- We have started a tour to support the album. He will be in seven cities in Germany and in Paris. Then we come back. Have a rest. Then six concerts in America. When will Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, the entire Baltic. In December-January tour will pause. Since the spring begins Siberia, Far East and I think by summer it will all end

- America you know?
-Russian-speaking part of it.

- Were not at the concert of Madonna?
- A. I have no illusions. Remained not happy. I do not really like the sound. Maybe if I was in the fan-zone I would see and hear better ...
In principle, I realized that I did not go to rock and roll concerts, bored. I do not like all those dancers. Although she has a great job with the art screens. She is very professional. But I'm close to Madonna's first half of the 80's. Her early period.Vremya when she was a teenager. True, the songs on the Moscow concert almost did not exist. Either they were so altered that they are difficult to recognize.
Half an hour later I was bored. Had to see out the end because to me was a child, to whom I promised that we go to this concert.

- Yours?
- No, it's not my child.

- You're not married?
- Several times married and divorced several times.

- In Australia?
- Actually, I do not like to talk about his personal life ...

- How did you get into the country of kangaroos?
- If you love to travel, if you're 20-21 years, you open the atlas of the world and think, where would you go to travel. I went to see Australia and stayed there.

- On the left you there together?
- No, we are friends since childhood. We met in the 85 th year in Minsk. We were engaged in a theatrical studio.


- The same question as the Shura. Why "Milk", whose idea?
- Indeed, for a long time wondering how to name plate. This process happens with every album. We are very passionate about and to registration, and title.
In my opinion, this idea occurred to Shurik. I did not mind, because the milk represents the life, culture medium. We hope that our album will be the 'Clockwork Orange.

- This will be something of new to BI-2 and their listeners?
- Of course, we are developing. The quality of the album, I hope, is higher than our previous work. There we fished for attention and new directions, trends that are taking place in Western musical life, and at the same time have left themselves.

- As you yourself, who left. For many it is felt that BI-2 - no longer the BI-2, who sang "No One Writes to the Colonel", "Silver" ... The highest point of popularity has never returns. All have declined ...
- I'm so pisimisticheski to this issue did not fall.In order to unleash a powerful mechanism to make any effort. There must be a powerful explosion. For the subsequent conquest of the audience, not necessarily so much an eyesore, including on television screens.

- But you're something special and not thorn then.
- On the streets we know so far - then everything is normal.
I think that when it will not happen - I have a desire to stop playing music.

- There are thought to tie?
- While there is no such thoughts. But this is not an end in itself. What matters is that it brings me pleasure, and preferably more money.
Music, show business is very expensive. The record results in a round sum. It is comparable to buying an apartment in Moscow. Record video clips ... A lot of expenses. They must somehow recoup. Therefore, our product (songs) should work and earn.

- Shura Australian, you had lived in Israel. Even had to serve in the Israeli army. So I can not ask you, how you reacted to all this history with Lebanon?
- I am Israeli. Naturally, at first I worried for their own state. For Israel. But I am not a supporter of extreme, aggressive methods. I think that some government went too far. In any case to terrorism, I am very negative. After all, the whole background of this war is understandable.

- If you were now perform military service and was in his country ...
- If these were some kind of global war and the whole country got under arms, can my participation in it was. And to such a local operation, I do not want to have relations.
