The band started as the Soviet Union was transitioning into the Russia we know and love today. This also happened to be the time that new wave was super popular: the late 80s. AGATA KRISTI is the Russian answer to The Cure. The music is emotional, arty, and heart felt, yet a little dreary, just like all the best new wave and post punk bands were. One of their most well known hits, "Opium," sounds straight of new wave 80s, but didn't hit the airwaves until the mid-90s. The band almost sounds more like German contemporaries than Russian rockers.

The band has remained a strong reputation after decades of recording and touring, a short hiatus, and some international acclaim, having sold millions of records in Russia. After all these years, it'll be a nostalgic treat for Russian ex-pats living in the Seattle area, to see charismatic Gleb Samoyloff perform AGATA KRISTI’s hits “As if at War”, “Helicopter Carpet”, “Secret”, “Bullet” and many others.
