"Pagan psychedelic protest songs from behind the iron curtain, plus a balalaika tribute to Boris' guitar hero Jimi Hendrix." (Delerium Records)

"Son of a Russian diplomat, he had his mind blown at a Jimi Hendrix gig in Sweden in 1967, was involved in the psychedelic surrealist protest movement in Hungary in 1968, spent many years in a Russian labour camp, and played at the legendary Stonehenge Festivals with Hawkwind and Ozric Tentacles. Boris is a legend and on his first ever album he blends 26 years of way out experiences into a cohesive dayglo pagan acid rock extravaganza. A fully electric album, featuring the full length version of the all time classic Magic Mushroom anthem "Toadstool Soup" together with two highly individual cover version's of Hendrix classics ("Purple Haze" and "Voodoo Child") this is the statement of a counter culture folk hero and a sure contender for the number one album spot this Christmas." (Delerium Records)

"Boris was born to the son of a Russian diplomat whose family defected to the west in the early sixties, while on a shopping trip in Sweden. He grew up in relative material comfort but saw Jimi Hendrix perform in Stockholm in 1967. The experience impressed young Boris deeply and from then on he became a kind of psychedelic crusader trying unite East and West ... It took Boris a few years to create this album but the end result is really worth listening to: about 50 minutes of warped sounds, intelligent (humane, even) lyrics end enough tongue-in-cheek humour to turn this debut into a real winner."
