    Official Album Biography ("200 km/h In The Wrong Lane") -

    Feisty brunette Julia and soulful redhead Lena, two teenage girls from Moscow known as t.A.T.u, are the Russian equivalent of pop-meets-Prodigy.

    "People love us or hate us but nobody thinks nothing about us," says Lena Katina, the older of the striking singers.  Tearing down walls of all sorts throughout the brave new world, t.A.T.u became the most explosive and controversial act in Eastern Europe last year with the scandalous single "Ya Soshla S Uma" ("All The Things She Said"), the story of a love affair, whose evocative video was named MTV Russia's Video of the Year.  200 km/h in the Wrong Lane, t.A.T.u's 2001 debut album on Universal Music Russia, sold more than 1,000,000 copies and t.A.T.u's concert appearances at huge clubs and stadiums draw upwards of 50,000 fans.

    Now t.A.T.u's tempestuous teens are readying to conquer America.  Just don't expect very close friends and flirtatious Julia and Lena to tone down their bold, fearless sense of freedom.

    "Our songs are not silly," says Lena. "t.A.T.u is more sincere, more honest about ourselves and others.  We don't shape ourselves for the audience. In Russia, life is not polite.  If we don't like something, we say we don't like it.  If we don't agree, we say 'f - - - you.'"

    Even t.A.T.u's pop electronica has an edge.  That's what enticed esteemed producer Trevor Horn to work with t.A.T.u on English-language versions of 200 km/h in the Wrong Lane to be released via Interscope Records.  Horn, whose credits include membership in The Buggles ("Video Killed The Radio Star"), prog-rock's Yes and the acclaimed The Art Of Noise as well as producer for The Pet Shop Boys, Grace Jones, Seal, Simple Minds and Frankie Goes To Hollywood, compares t.A.T.u's sound not only to Prodigy but also a group he worked with in the '80s, Propaganda.

    Show Me Love (English Lyrics)

    Allo,
    Allo,
    Vidish' veter?
    Nu I chto?
    Posmotri v okno,
    Nu I chto?
    A vchera bylo solntse,
    Nu I chto?
    Zachem ty vse vremya govorish' odno I tozhe?
    A ya avtootvetchik.

    This was an accident
    not the kind where sirens sound
    Never even noticed
    weíre suddenly crumbling

    Tell me how youíve never felt
    delicate or innocent
    Do you still have doubts that
    us having faith makes any sense

    Tell me nothing ever counts
    Lashing out or breaking down
    Still somebody loses cause
    thereís no way to turn around

    Staring at your photograph
    everything now in the past
    Never felt so lonely I wish
    that you could show me love

    Show me love
    Show me love
    Show me love
    Show me love
    Show me love
    till you open the door
    Show me love
    Show me love
    Show me love
    Show me love
    Show me love
    till Iím up off the floor
    Show me love
    Show me love
    Show me love
    Show me love
    Show me love
    till itís inside my pores

    Show me love
    Show me love
    Show me love
    Show me love
    Show me love
    till Iím screaming for more

    Random acts of mindlessness
    commonplace occurrences
    Chances and surprises
    another state of consciousness

    Tell me nothing ever counts
    lashing out or breaking down
    Still somebody loses cause
    thereís no way to turn around

    Tell me how youíve never felt
    delicate or innocent
    Do you still have doubts that
    us having faith makes any sense

    You play games
    I play tricks
    Girls and girls
    but youíre the one
    Like a game of pick-up sticks
    played by fucking lunatics

    Show me love
    Show me love
    Show me love
    Show me love
    Show me love
    till you open the door
    Show me love
    Show me love
    Show me love
    Show me love
    Show me love
    till Iím up off the floor

    Show me love
    Show me love
    Show me love
    Show me love
    Show me love
    till itís inside my pores

    Show me love
    Show me love
    Show me love
    Show me love
    Show me love
    till Iím screaming for more

    Show me love
    Show me love
    Give me all that I want

    Show me love
    Show me love
    Give me all that I want

    Show me love
    Show me love
    Give me all that I want

    Show me love
    Show me love
    Till Iím screaming for more

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

                 

    In the end, however, t.A.T.u is unlike any other in the East or the West.  "Russians are not dark but we are not light either," says Julia Volkova.  "We have a different view, maybe deeper, because life is more difficult in Russia."

    Julia and Lena had already known each other for several years while in another music group when they came together for t.A.T.u two years ago.  Both had also studied music formally for 8 years.  But that's where their commonality ends.

    Julia is an only child of middle-class parents; Lena, the youngest of three, is the daughter of a well-known musician/pop-songwriter father.  "We love each other very much but Lena is totally different from me," says Julia, who has also acted in small films. "She doesn't like to party; I like to party. She's more quiet, reads a lot.  I don't like reading."  Yet the contrasts between sweet, dramatic Lena and energetic, in-your-face Julia complement each other in t.A.T.u

    The video for "Not Gonna Get Us" (t.A.T.u's second Russian hit "Nas Ne Dagoniat") has Julia and Lena commandeering a huge fuel tanker, speeding across a snowy Siberian road past anyone who would stop them, triumphant.

    "t.A.T.u is about saying what you feel, not what others expect," says Lena. "Be in love.  Be yourself.  We are."
