Alex Wyner, the all-time leader of Wine is considered to be the pioneer of russian brit-pop. In the beginning on 1990's he created a cocktail of The Beatles' melodic clearness, The Kinks' pop-psychedelia, Velvet Undeground's melancholy, The Clash's lapidarity, The Smith's post-modernistic affectation ans garage bands' aggressive sound. The same set of influences were to form a new generation of british musicians known as brit-pop.
