Boris Yeltsin was the president of Russia between 1991-1999. In fact, he was the first president of Russia. He also holds the Guinness Record for being the most hospitilized world leader. For some reason, a few college students decided to give the man some love and Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin was formed. The band released their debut album, Broom, in 2005 and through a rollercoaster ride of blog mentions and a O.C. music appearance the band landed on Polyvinyl Records this year.
They opened up the Poyvinyl 10th Anniversary Party, and they rocked the house with a variety of songs from their debut and new unreleased songs. Other than a wierd statement that they would kick Sufjan’s ass if he wrote a song about Missouri, their set came off very well and they seemed to have a lot of fun onstage. If you haven’t heard the band yet, give these songs a try and I guarantee that you too will proclaiming your love for Boris Yeltsin.
