The day after their performance at the Maxidrom festival, the group once again went on tour. The musicians are travelling through cities on a bus, and as usual, are encountering numerous adventures along the way. On the way from Tver at night, for example, a cord in the ventilation caught on fire and for several seconds the bus was filled with smoke. Several of the musicians were already asleep by that time- they were awoken and everyone ran outside while the driver was taking care of the fire. Fortunately someone had noticed the smell of smoke right away and since everything was done very quickly, the fire was immediately put out. The musicians got on the bus gain and drove on. On the way to Ivanovo, where they were supposed to hold a concert on May 22, the group stopped for a picnic to celebrate the birthday of guitarist Yuri Tsaler, who had turned 27. Mumyi Troll also gave two more performances at Baltic festivals- one on May 26 at Klaiped and one on May 27 in Valmier. Their next tour will be this autumn.

Although some may take this as an exaggeration, it always seemed to me that there was something more complex about Mummy Troll and Ilya Lagutenko than what appeared on the surface of his songs. It's not that he has a particularly exciting biography, however, nor does the group really stray far beyond the standards of Russian pop. But if you listen closely to the lyrics, you realize there has to be some sort of reason, or at least justification for either their esoteric showiness, or imaginative eccentricity (depending on your point of view). You just don't know where to look for that justification. When I found out that by the time he reached the status he knows today, Lagutenko had already obtained a diploma in African and Eastern Studies from the Far East State Universtiy in Vladivostok, and had lived in China for a while (which I'm sure did wonders to his lexicon and his concept of vocabulary), I was able to place an origin to some of the wildest imagery in his songs. Not that…
