Rina Green live concert @ The Good Ship, London, on Friday 31 March 2017

Rina Green, the musical project of London-based Russian natives Alyona and Sasha Titov (Aquarium, Kino) are playing live at The Good Ship (289 Kilburn High Road, NW6 7JR London, United Kingdom) on Friday 31 March along with Alan Clayson, Casablanca Drivers and SalvadorDarlings.

Sat 18 March 2017 - 11.00am

by Александр Титов

Rina Green, the musical project of London-based Russian natives Alyona and Sasha Titov, takes its name from Rina Zelyonaya (ʻzelyonayaʼ stands for ʻgreenʼ in Russian), a Soviet actress and singer. The name is in dedication to an entire generation of actors who once enjoyed national fame in Soviet Russia but were forgotten in the turmoil of social and political changes at the turn of the century and died in extreme poverty. 
Sasha Titov, the bassist and co-producer of Rina Green, takes upon the status of a musical legend for his work with such bands as Aquarium and Kino, amongst others. Despite having moved to England more than two decades ago, Sasha has not been forgotten in Russia, where many believe him to be the most significant and original Russian bass player. 
In
 autumn 2013, Sasha and Alyona were joined by Liam Bradley (Van Morrison, Ronan Keating) on drums and Vinz Lamagna (Mysteries of the Revolution, Twisted Tongues) on guitars. The band started recording and by February 2014 their first EP Dreamers became available for streaming online (listen to it here: https://rinagreen.bandcamp.com/album/dreamers-ep). Despite having only four songs out, the band gained more than a thousand followers on Facebook within three months. The sudden public interest enabled Rina Green to open a crowdfunding campaign towards the recording of their debut album. The album that was mixed by the legendary Jerry Boys (The Beatles, Pink Floyd, The Shadows, The Rolling Stones, REM, Level 42, Everything but the Girl, Buena Vista Social Club) was given the name Universe 25 in reference to John Calhoun’s 1972 over-population experiment featuring an animal model of societal collapse. 
The album Universe 25, described by the band as “songs observing the shortcomings of humanity from an alien perspective”, was officially released on 25 August 2015 (you can listen to it here: https://rinagreen.bandcamp.com/album/universe-25). Since than Sasha and Alyona have been playing live around London and Europe. Last summer Rina Green released their new single Powerless that will be featured on their upcoming second album (you can watch it here: https://youtu.be/MwLsHwBiplI). Soon after the release of the new single, they were joined by Eduardo Dolzan on drums. Last month the three piece performed their new live set featuring previously unreleased tracks as well as songs from Universe 25 at the Raylab in London and the Hard Rock cafe in Helsinki, Finland. This month Rina Green are returning to London to play a live show at The Good Ship in Kilburn along with Alan Clayson, Casablanca Drivers and SalvadorDarlings.

The show will take place on Friday 31 March at The Good Ship, 289 Kilburn High Road, NW6 7JR London, United Kingdom. Doors open at 19:30.
