Vorony is the second album by John Peel favourites The Ukrainians. Originally a Wedding Present side-project, the band mixed British post-punk indie guitars with fiddles, accordion, mandolins and the musical styles of the Carpathian mountains. The result is a very powerful record: highly emotionally-charged songs with truly memorable melodies ? a perfect blend of East and West. A VOX magazine Album of the Month in early 1993, this record explodes with confidence and originality.

For the first time on vinyl (and a double at that!), Vorony is extended from 15 to 19 tracks, to include all the songs from the sessions. Produced by world music guru Harri Kakoulli, once a member of Squeeze. The success of Vorony at the time was such that the band played prestigious spots at both Glastonbury and Womad festivals and undertook a 110 date world tour. This included dates in Ukraine itself as guests of the newly independent country's Ministry of Culture. Tracks from the album have been used on numerous film soundtracks and also as wake-up calls on the International Space Station.
