In December 1985, Mr.. been one of the most important events in the musical life of Galanin: he became the bass guitarist of a new group called the Brigade S ". Five years Garik Sukachev and Sergei Galanin were a kind of locomotive of this team, writing songs, collected stadiums, traveled to festivals and tours ... In late 1989. there was their first quarrel, which resulted in Sukachev gained new members' Brigades ", and Galanin - a group of" Brigadier of the old musicians. It was a brief project with one memorable number - song and video "Ironweed," which Sergei later included in his solo album "Dog Waltz".

In the summer of 1994. Sergei Galanin got "earring". The name of the group received both from the initials of its leader, from the habits of the last to wear earring in one ear and on behalf of whom a child Sergei called him uncle (other relatives, to the chagrin of the boy, never thought of that before).

The girl with a wonderful Russian name Luban and absolutely non-Russian origin and the name (which is still kept under wraps) found in Yekaterinburg whether Vladimir Shahrin, or producer "Ear" and "CHajF Dmitry Groisman. Anyway, this latest acquisition terribly proud of. Luban wonderfully played the guitar and spoken a very badly in Russian: "any publicity is almost always silent and smiling. Incidentally, in the group Luban finish until early 1998, went on maternity leave, gave birth, and in 2000. already appeared in the last clip "Earrings" "Yellow Letter.
Fighting the baptism of "Ser'Ga" was held at the festival "Music Bazaar at Taganka.

Previously, the smallest was Luban, but to torment the girls was below the dignity of the participants "Earrings". In the same year the band broke up with producer Dimitri Groysmanom.
