Russian rock band (the name means Time Machine) founded by Andrei Makarevich (1953- ) and Aleksandr Kutikov (1952- ). Mashina Vremeni are, by all accounts, extremely popular in their homeland although little known outside it; and their music works within an attractively Beatle-y or "Adult Oriented Rock" idiom. Amongst their many releases is the concept album Malenkiy printz (1979), an adaptation of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry's Le Petit Prince (1944); and Vneshtatniy komandir Zemli (1993), whose title ("Temporary Commander of the Earth") picks up the lightly science-fictional flavour of a number of their songs.
