    I have two russian colleagues and one friend from Belarus. All three know the band. Based on this small sample I'd say they are/were a little more then just cult in Russia.

    I agree. They lost something with Hamburger concerto. Before they always had a large dose of energy and serious fun in their music that kind of dissapeared with HC. Still a very nice album though.
