Classic (Russian) Popsa

I was downloading random songs today out of boredom, and I discovered a very good one by a band called Nensi. The song is "Dim sigareti s mentholom" -- it's slow rock, not really like anything I've heard before but I'll compare it to Chaif anyway. Chaif/Splin/Bi-2 fans should like this...Just thought I'd post the link in case you're curious.

Nenci was a cheap pop band. They cannot be compared to Splin or Chaif! Do you know what the term 'popsa' means?

yes...i do know what popsa is, i thought it was more like dance-music though. People like Zhasmin and some of Valery Meladze's songs. Anyway this song sounded like soft-rock to me. I like it no matter what you classify it as....

Again I'm taking the liberty to comment on your music taste. Sorry. It's just the name of the post -- "Classic Russian Rock": they are not classic, because noone can hardly remember them today, and not russian, because they can hardly ever speak russian language (they're from Ukrain methinks), and they are certainly not rock. And do not rock. Yuck!

Sometimes I like pop tunes too, but I always keep it in mind that it's not real music.

okay, point taken.

I just heard this song on the very good online station called BlueFM, which plays contemporary instrumental and light music.
It took me by surprise to hear this now obscure group from late 80s on a popular streaming channel.
But I would like to post a rebuttal to B.P.'s comments:
1.As one can hear they speak quite proficient Russian if you haven't noticed.
2.I am myself a Ukrainian/Russian , can fluently speak both languages and take an offense at such an arrogant remark, suggesting that folks from Ukraine are some kind of second-rate peasants.

Please use discretion, when referring to other nations.

...wow, that's really interesting - this song seems to be gaining popularity again; it was on one of the "most popular download" pages on zaycev.net and it was also recently discussed on the forums on russmus.net.

And Alex, I am 1/4 Ukrainian and I am familiar with all the stereotypes, unfortunately. I don't think b.p. meant to outright insult Ukrainians, but might have come across that way....
