Description

Jungle - Live in Leningrad 1985

Jungle was formed in 1983 in Leningrad’s new wave milieu, but differed significantly from the city’s other underground groups like Aquarium, Zoo or Kino: its music was purely instrumental and its musicians cited European ”avant-progressive” Rock In Opposition musicians and American proponents of Ornette Coleman’s harmolodics as their influences instead of The Velvet Underground or British new wave bands. More canonical names they mentioned were King Crimson and Oregon, which both can be heard in Jungle’s early music – Robert Fripp in its dark angularity, and Oregon in its beautiful melodicism, though contorted by a youthful punk urgency and recklessness. Something that was shared by the early lineups of many Leningrad new wave groups was the presence of both virtuosos and non-musicians who could barely play their instruments in the conventional sense, but who brought grit, avant-garde ideas, or at least a whiff of anarchy into the proceedings.

Jungle (known as Dzhungli in Russia) went through endless lineup changes during its entire existence from late 1983 until early 1991, with only two constant members: Andrei Otraskin, the guitarist and composer of the group, and bass player Igor Tikhomirov. A major turning point for the group occured in late 1987, when Otraskin was baptized an Orthodox Christian and ”denounced Jungle’s earlier output as demonic,” as he says now. Tikhomirov left Jungle in late 1990 after having played simultaneously in Kino, arguably the most popular Russian rock band ever, and joined later the equally popular DDT. In the summer of 1991 Otraskin emigrated to the USA, where he formed the duo Guitar Monks with Timothy Young and released a CD called ”Songs For Oblivion” in 2000.
