It all started in 1968 when the young Andrei Makarevich heard the song group The Beatles.It was then that he came up with the idea to create a Moscow school №19 own rock band.Initially, she did not even have a name, and its first participants were two guitarists - Andrey Makarevich and Mikhail Yashin - and two vocalists - Larissa Kasperk and Nina Baranova.Later on in the classroom, where he studied Makarevich, there were two newcomers - Yuri and Igor Borzov smear.Both are actively interested in rock music and soon became full members of the group, we find the time, the name of The Kids.Borzov invited a group of his friend Sergey Kawagoe, at the urging of whom were soon dismissed both soloist.
According to Andrei Makarevich, a turning point in the band's history was the visit to the school band "Atlanta" under the direction of Alexander Sikorsky.Sikorski allowed the boys to play a few songs on the professional equipment and even he played up his bass guitar.After that was formed by the first part of the future of the famous group for which Yury Borzov coined the name Time Machines.The participants joined The Kids Alexander Ivanov (rhythm guitar) and Paul Rubin (bass guitar).
However, immediately after the formation of the group began differences due to the repertoire.Most of the participants would perform songs of "The Beatles" and Makarevich insisted on referring to less well-known English-language numbers.He explained this by the fact that the participants of the "Beatles" too professional, and the new-found group may be their very pale copy.At the same time it was recorded the first album, which features 11 songs sung in English.Unfortunately, the record is not preserved.

In 1978, Alexander Kutikov, play while in the "Leap summer", got a job in the voice studio GITIS.At the request of Makarevich, he organized the recording of the album "Time Machine", copies of which went to the country and brought the band acclaim.In 1992, on the basis of copies of accidentally preserved in the collection of Alexander Gradsky, was released album, "It's been so long ...»
In 1979 the group split, in which Margulis and KawagoeWe moved into the group of "Resurrection."But in the "Time Machine" back Kutikov Alexander, who brought with him a drummer Valery Efremov.As a keyboardist, the group was invited to a professional pianist Peter Podgordetsky.In this part of "The Time Machine" has prepared a new concert program.It included such future hits as "The Turn", "Who do you want to surprise", "candle".That same year, the group began to work in Rosconcert.
