Everybody wants what Vostok Lake wants

The 2018 lineup of Vostok Lake

Vostok Lake is the music that comes from low-budget electronic hardware, open-source audio software, and wetware with a subversive sense of humour, too much ambition and a big sexy brain. Our slogan is NO GUITARS, NO BOYS, NO BUDGET, NO PROBLEM.

Click here for upcoming gigs, and NEWEST OF THE NEW: our long-awaited album COMICS AND STORIES is now available in all formats.

If you like finely-programmed synth-pop arrangements with goth-operatic vocals, prog-style keyboard improvisations, punk-cabaret interactive performance chaos, revolutionary cultural politics and the idea of a broadband connection plugged directly into your skull, then Vostok Lake is your kind of music. The live act has been described as "Bonnie Tyler meets Keith Emerson", "Peaches meets David Bowie", "Depeche Mode meets Flight of the Conchords", "Tori Amos meets Gary Numan" or, alternatively, "Yazoo meets The Skeptics meets Raw Sex... on speed."

Vostok Lake believes that in the 23rd century, all music will sound like this. You have not heard anything like Vostok Lake, nor do you know anyone who has. Thanks for coming.

The Stories of Comics and Stories: Part 5, "F is for Fake"

“F is for Fake” was the final track to be recorded, and again, only completed soon before that - the last part was the counterpoint vocal arrangement (shades of the March Violets), without which the song would have not been interesting enough to make the cut for the album.
