Biography

Егор и Опизденевшие (“Egor i Opizdenevshie”, usually translated as “Egor and the Fuckups”) was a Russian psychedelic rock project started by Egor Letov in 1990 when his band Гражданская Оборона was on temporary hiatus.

Songs appeared on their first two albums were inspired by Letov’s experiments with occult and mind-altering practices, as well as the death of fellow Siberian singer-songwriter Янка Дягилева (Yanka Dyagileva) and a near-death experience he presumably had after having been infected with encephalitis in 1990. As for the music, Letov cited the band Love as the primary influence. First two albums are considered by many fans and critics as peak of Letov’s poetic and musical activity. The band’s mainly lo-fi sound combines 60’s psychedelic rock and 80’s post-punk, also using some garage rock, folk and noise rock elements in certain songs. The third album was almost entirely instrumental jam, and was released in limited edition in 2002; most of the compositions there were written by Alexandr Rozhkov.
