Comments From the Press
From Zig Zag 10/95:
THE BOLSHOI - "Happy Boy" (Situation Two) Fabber than before. Tinkling neatly (you know the kind of guitar)
with cloak and dagger vocals, in in an entirely confident manner, which is always the secret. Last time
they were choking on their own notions. NOT NOW!
From Music Week 9/7/95:
THE BOLSHOI: Happy Boy (Situation Two SIT 40(T), Cartel/Pinnacle).
Hefty beat backs a memorable vocal and resounding guitar to form an
exciting number from this promising new indie band. Should create
interest for their forthcoming mini-LP Giants.
From Record Mirror 8/31/95:
- IF YOU thought the BOLSHOI
were a bunch of Ruskies prancing about with arms aloft and lunchboxes down their pink
lycra tights, you'd be mistaken. The Bolshoi are instead a three-strong
team of dark and broody musicians who've swopped timpani for tutu and deep and booming bass for ballet shoes.
The trio were founded by Trevor Tanner on guitar and vox with wonderboy drummer Jan Kalicki. On
moving to London they were joined by Nick Chown, who added bass and a hunger for success.
Their second single on Beggars Banquet is "Happy Boy" -- A far more acessible introduction to
their subtle charms than the previous "Sob Story," which was a bit of
a dirge to say the least. A mini LP Giants accompanies the single and proves indisputably
what a jolly combo the Bolshoi are.
