Leningrad & The Tiger Lillies - Huinya (2005)

This 2005 album was a collaboration between the Russian ska band Leningrad and the darkly eccentric English cabaret trio, The Tiger Lillies.
Essentially the songs here are Tiger Lillies compositions translated into Russian. Both acts contribute to the performance, so we get to hear both the world weary gravelly tones of Shnur (a Slavic Tom Waits perhaps?) and strange falsetto of Martyn Jacques.
The word huinya in Russian mat translates as dickness.
