Poostosh emerged in 2002 from a previous formation, which was known as Dark Brigade. Misha MOX Salnikov and Andrey Kovalenko with a support of friends started recording their improvisations (guitar,flute, percussion etc) with using mixer, MD and tape players as playable instruments as well. Here you can listen to their first album conjuring up associations with such universes as Controlled Bleeding, Rapoon and The Hafler Trio. Dark, trippy, noisy and dubby.
