Profile The Gunnar Graps Group was an Estonian rock group formed by Gunnar Graps in January, 1984 in Tallinn after his previous Magnetic Band was banned by Soviet authorities. In 1980s, the GGG achieved popularity also in Russia. After its participation in Tartu rock-festival in 1984, the group entered to state philarmonia. New winds began to blow in the Soviet Union as Mikhail Gorbachev took the seat of the General Secretary of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union and GGG experienced less resistance from authorities. In 1989 they released their only LP entitled Põlemine (Burning). The vinyl was issued by Melodiya, a Soviet record company – the only one in the whole USSR. Distribution of the record was very high. They performed in Estonia and the rest of the Soviet Union and were very popular until their fade in the end of decade. Their most popular songs were “Põlemine” (Burning), “Valgus” (Light), the ballad “Mosaiik” (Mosaic), “Raudmees” (Iron Man) – a song which gave Graps his nickname. Quiet good and obscure album with great guitar work and good song-writing that worth the search…
