Russian Picnic Shout Out

Posted on December 10, 2017


 It was a while since I talked about the Russian Artrock band Пикник (Picnic/Piknik) but this year they were due to release their 22th album “Искры и канкан”, and since Russian music is a bit tricky to get your hands on I emailed them and asked if there was a chance I could buy it from them.

Alyona, who reads and anwers emails for the band in English, one of the sweetest persons I’ve talked to, told me to get back with them in the end of September. And before I knew it, she send me an email telling me that they’ve send the album out to me as a gift!
And not only that.. it camed signed as well!

I mean.. this is just so awesome and I can’t express my gratitude, so I thought the least I could do was to give them all a big shout out here! :)

So if you haven’t heard about this group before I can highly recommend you to check them out, you can read one of my earlier reviews (which I think may have been in Swedish though) or just look them up on Youtube.
And if you like it, support the band by buying their physical media :)
(You can try Discogs, Ebay and
This band really deserves to get more recognition outside of East Europe.

Thank you Picnic and Alyona for being such awesome people :)
