**Nogu Svelo! (Ногу Свело!)** could simply translate as "Ouch, I've got cramp in my leg!" but the instantly catchy Nogu Svelo! sounds great anyway, regardless of what it means!
During the band's 20 years history Nogu Svelo! have released: 14 studio albums 4 singles 2 concert DVDs 28 video clips All the band's albums were released by the major Russian labels: Soyuz, CD Land and Mystery of Sound. Nogu Svelo! won numerous awards throughout their lifetime including a Russian MTV Movie Award, the MTV Special Prize, the popular Russian TV Channel 1 "Star" award and many other recognized awards.
Nogu Svelo! are the Russian equivalent of a sordid three-way love affair between the mangled, genre melding of The Clash, the musical pomposity and dry wit of Blur and the dare to be different new wave pop punk of XTC... and then some!
Nogu Svelo! combine unique, contemporary sounds, insane effects, vigorous beats and cheeky lyrics full of satirical, dark humor to produce a sound which is both wildly different yet instantly likeable. Nogu Svelo! became famous with the excellent Haru Mamburu, an infectiously catchy, tongue-in-cheek load of waffle in a non-existent language. It is ridiculous but it is also quite brilliant and is a perfect example of what the band are all about.
Nogu Svelo! started in the early 90's and their success has seen them sell over a whopping 10 million records and perform to crowds of over 100,000 at many of the big music festivals across Europe. The band continues to successfully tour regularly.
