The ska-core band “Kozhany Olen”, or “K.O.” for short, from sunny Crimea Republic, has been knocking out the clubs and stages of Ukraine since 1998. Their songs are well known in former Soviet Union, and even some lucky european pogo lovers are familliar with “K.O.”. Eclectic, ska to punk, reggae to hardcore music plus witty and ironic lyrics- that is a formula that makes “K.O.” a prominent part of post-soviet ska/punk scene. Born and raised by crimean sea and sun, “Kozhany Olen” has got a huge optimistic charge, and you will feel it in any song they sing. Despite their making fun of anything, these guys raise social problems, such as AIDS or wars for oil, and mocking the vices of modern world. The group’s performance was prohibited in a few ukrainian clubs and rotations were banned on some radio stations for sometimes explicit lyrics, but the army of fans is constantly growing.
