    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    The only vinyl disc of the most prominent female-fronted Soviet melodic hard'n'heavy band "Marquise" (founded in March 1988, disbanded in 1993) from Moscow. In fact, this album (recorded in 1989) has no specific title being released by the state-run "Melodiya Records" as just "Marquise" in 1990. However, some sources mention it as "Reefs" or "220 Volts" (judging from the first track) that is, in fact, not true - we must follow the artwork. Despite its cult-like status in the then-USSR, this album was never re-released on CD remaining on vinyl only.
    Slight off-top: I remember I bought their LP in the fall of 1990 from a news-stand soon after its release). I still keep it together with dozens of other Soviet hard rock LPs and EPs as a token of remembrance of those vinyl-and-tape years!

    Line-up:
    Elena Sokolova - bass, lead vocals
    Elena Molchanova - guitars, back vocals
    Dmitrij Lukjanov - guitars
    Yurij Mamontov - drums

    Oops, the country of origin must be corrected as I made a mistake!
    In fact it should be posted as "Маркиза/Marquise (USSR) - Маркиза/Marquise (1989)"
    The point is that the band was founded in 1988, was active in the USSR and disbanded soon after the breakdown of the Soviet Union. So, it's Soviet, not Russian band!
