Jenya Gorbunov is not a name familiar to many outside of Russia’s alternative scene, where he is regarded as something of a cult hero. For the record, Gorbunov co-runs the stimulating label, Incompetence, with Andrew Lee (who plays in Obgon, and is bandmate of yet another Gorbunov venture, Interchain). And doubtless some decadent Western bourgeois types may also know he is the guitarist in the truly brilliant Moscow band, ГШ / Glintshake. References to ГШ should end immediately, though, as Inturist have a “sonic thing going on” (maaan) that is entirely their own. This, their new LP, Командировка (Business Trip) is certainly proof of that. (Richard Foster, Louder Than War review)
