In a world of faceless, transient pop non-entities, Boris & His Bolshie Balalaika stands out as a truly larger than life character. Born the son of a Russian diplomat, Boris has lead an incredible life, involving both the KGB and CIA, MI5 and LSD... A psychedelic legend in the making, George Formby on Acid, no-one can deny that Boris' message of cosmic love and hope is both genuine and a much needed antidote to all that ails society today.
Boris was born the son of a Russian diplomat. In the early '60s his family defected whilst on a shopping trip to Sweden and Boris was brought up to experience life in the West. In 1967 he was lucky enough to see Hendrix perform his legendary Stockholm gigs, and as a result had a mystical glimpse of the future.
