Selekhov, despite any apparent reference to a single performer, are actually a trio from the Russian river port of Rostov-on-Don. The band's current members are Pavel Astakhov, David Kogan, and Aleksey Ukhanov. Their collective pseudonym or imaginary surname is taken from a retired and provincial inventor, Vladimir Selekhov, renowned on national news programs for creating DIY scooters from scrap iron. He turns all manner of junk - such as broken prams - into peculiar, yet perfectly functioning transportation for elderly adults.

Selekhov - the ensemble - speak highly of this pensioner's "freakish, yet futuristic" contraptions. They laud his lo-fi, yet "progressive" craft that refashions and revives discarded raw materials. Our Rostov-on-Don performers discern a related reworking of sonic off-cuts in their own endeavors. They make something from nothing - in the middle of nowhere.

"We combine elements of psychedelia, noise-rock, and free improvisation. Most bands nowadays will appear live only if they're well rehearsed and everything has been practiced. The members of Selekhov, however, operate very differently. That atmosphere [of concert spontaneity] is captured in the group's recordings, too; both the structure and overall character of our studio work are free-wheeling. Everything is designed according to an ongoing dialog between everyone involved."
