L.O.M.O. was earlier known as Maniacal Depression and consisted of four members. The guys played in their home city Ust-Kamenogorsk at the stadiums, parties, festivals etc. On one of the fests in 1998 the band was suggested to visit Moscow in search for a producer and a record lable. Unfortunately it happened at the time of de-fault in Russia and the members had to give up their musical insinuations and find some real job.
