came from Taganrog to Moscow to win with five hundred rubles in his pocket - he would live on this money at least two or three weeks, but they had enough for a few days. I had to earn their bread, grinding away at a construction site, as is forced to do many who came to the capital. Period of lack of money ended only this year, when a group of 'animal' has become one of the most promising and commercially successful musical projects of the country.
. In 2003, the debut album 'Animals' called 'Hunger', . and then a good few tracks from it became a super hit: 'Rain-guns', . 'Ring', . 'Just such a strong love', . 'Traps': Hit Parade 'Our Radio' 'Chartova Dozen' at one point threatened to turn into a benefit performance of 'Animals', . a curtain in it was a solo song and Roma Beast
'Heroes', . wittily commented bathos musical idols.,
. 'Heroes are ready to die for the money' - cynical? But truth
. Who better than Rome the Beast
(real name Roman Bilyk
) - band leader, vocalist and author of all the songs - to know all the ins and outs of show business, where he became a nouveau-hero. At a concert in Chelyabinsk frenzied crowd of fans dared system protection and nearly fell upon the musicians. And what can you do if 'such a strong love'! The first and rather long tour of the country ended with sold-out concert in Moscow. And everywhere - a crowd of young female fans, eager to touch at least to the sleeve Roma Beast
and screaming with joy, if able to be photographed in the company of idol. The same thing happened at the Izhevsk concert 'Animals', held at the Club 'Babel' and organized by 'Social life'.
. - Roman
, tell me your song 'Heroes' - this is only irony to the contemporary pop music or primarily self-irony?
. - It's banter over a course
. Must be able to laugh at themselves, and this song is addressed to all the same rock-'geroyam 'and rock stars, not pop musicians.
- 'Heroes' will be heard in the new film 'Music and Lyrics'. You have interesting was the experience of creating the soundtrack to the film?
- Yes, certainly. It was interesting to try to write in the new environment: task was not simply write a song that you like, but that it responds to the director's concept of the film. And the film - about show business, so that 'Heroes' be appropriate.
- 'Heroes' - very witty banter over the ambitions of musicians. And how do you think about the songs 'Popsa' Shevchuk and his partners 'My name is Cord' Sergei Shnurov, in which so many unflattering (and this is the mildest definition) statements about the various artists?
. - 'Popsa' - is generally very unsuccessful song
. It's a shame all rock music, though. The result was a situation of a series of 'elephant and ï?ï¡ÿ?ÿ?ï?ï°', and in the role of lap-dogs of a sudden found themselves rockers: bark on pop culture, spittle flying in all directions. The song 'Heroes' is written largely as a response to 'Popsa'. It wanted to remind our rockers, which should be a corporate mutual respect, that all of the musicians go on tour, stand in front of an audience, earn money. It's not terrible that someone listens to different music, not his. A Shevchuk shouted: 'Listen to me only! I am the most honest! " Although the fees he has much more than pop artists. What he lacks, I do not know. He did have some help, because he was very unhappy man on life. And cords, too, must fall in love with someone: Power - this is generally fully thought-out project based on people's love of Mato. In principle, it is not bad, but to direct all our energies to the aggression - not the best option.
- The site dedicated to the group 'Animals', there is information that in his native Taganrog you been doing music, but no details. Fill this gap, please.
- I played guitar in the courtyard for boys and girls.
- Even at that time - songs composed?
- Were some of his songs, but when I arrived in Moscow, he began to write very differently. Now I do not play any songs from domoskovskogo period.
. - What were the songs?
. - Why do not they love: Maybe because I myself have not been in love at that moment - at least love the powerful, from which the roof blows
. And then something about America, wrote, even some nonsense:
- It's true that you can write a song for the night?
- Yes I can it for ten minutes to write! This does not mean that I sit on the instructions and then compose a song - it does not happen. But when suddenly dawns as if finds something, then you can write a song instantly. She herself had written.
- Your voice - a bunch of hysterics. This is a tribute to fashion or belief that there is no quiet love?
- When people in my life is quiet, and they sing the quiet song. And if a person is something disturbing, something of sausage, then he cries, breaks into song. Now if I zapoyu calm, bezemotsionalnye songs, then I end. In my voice will be heard, that my life was nothing interesting.
- In the song 'Rain-guns' is a paste-monologue deceived the young man. It's an invented story or real?
- No, you've heard that it was me telling. And no I am a great actor, or it is true. So it. We just sat with Sasha Voitinsky - long, about three hours, telling each other stories about our successes and failures. And he at some point included a voice recorder, and then said nothing to me, put this piece in the song (it was originally just a short loss). And when he showed me the song, in my eyes went dark: 'Sasha, you've done, I'm writing this from a friend told me just between us! " And he said: 'On the contrary, well. Are you, . shy of something? " I really hesitate a long time, . then thought, . that is my story, . I'm singing about yourself, . and not somebody else's secrets betraying, . so why not tell me this? Then the Internet began to receive thousands of letters to admissions, . what happened to them the same,
. People need to sing about how they really live. No need to invent anything, to write some pathos line - people want to recognize themselves in the heroes songs. I realized this recently.
. - Will you at a time when the assembled 'animal' that the huge popularity throughout the country will come to the group so quickly?
. - I do not suppose, in fact it all happened quite by accident
. Of course, we were not ready for such rapid developments. Everything is spun: We had to write the album is already after the first clip released. A clip we filmed a strange, random ... Did you give him on television, and it began to twist. And suddenly, it turned out that people expect us to continue, request new songs. Then we decided that this matter is addressed.
. - Now you're not afraid that a sudden and resounding success simply will carry you a tower, and you will cease to adequately assess their work?
. - There is such a thing, but we must remember that success may take, but you'll stay:
. - The shooting his second clip 'Rain-guns' group has invited not actors, but everyone
. What is it - the desire to become better acquainted with their fans or the opportunity to save on the crowd?
. - Well, what it means to 'save on the crowd'? Ordinary people - is best actors! Not every actor can achieve such simplicity, as an ordinary person
. To be absolutely certain, one must be either a great actor, or so, what you have in life. Because the copy of the common man, common feelings and emotions - the most difficult for an actor. And the faces of those who came to us for the video shoot, it is best to be seen how they sausage. They liked it, and they did everything from the heart. And no actor so never play.
- This clip, like the first, was withdrawn by your scenario?
- Yes, although actually, we team work: Sasha Voitinskii director, screenwriter Roma Nepomnyashchii and I. Operator, we are making. We are going all together and do what we think is correct.
. - If you have already developed their vision of the shooting process and have experience of writing the soundtrack, maybe it makes sense to make your own film?
. - While there is no money, although we think about it
. There will some money, but somewhere else will have to take some three million: U.S.. (Laughs) Then we will shoot.
- If the money is still there, in what genre is your movie?
- You know, this is simple human film about people, about ordinary people. It will not be any action movie or thriller. Good movie about love, about how people live today in our country, that worries them, except money.
- Is it true that you acted in defense of the writer Eduard Limonov, was in prison?
- True. I supported him, he's a good writer. 'The young rascals', for example, a very good book. He lived in Kharkov, and can easily be written about how people live and what they do. I do not have to think - all before his eyes.
- Recently, 'Animals' played on MTV in the action against drugs. What place does alcohol and drugs occupy in the life of rock musicians, and in your own?
- I am absolutely sure that a person uses drugs, only if he have nothing to do. The same applies to alcohol. And when you have a favorite thing that you are busy twenty-four hours a day, you will not drink or take drugs. You have neither the time will not be on it, nor the desire. And it is not necessary. I tried drugs, but only weak. When I wondered why this was happening, I realized that if I had free time, and had nothing to do. Imagine: Some tusovka, . all sit, . from nothing to toil, . Suddenly someone says: 'Come, . drink, . what? " - 'Well, . go: 'From all this idleness! Similarly, drugs: 'since I have nothing to do, . so even kicks let's say! " - And again in response: 'Well, . let: 'Stupidity is terrible!,
. - And music for your drug, or a passion for it you can control it?
. - Music - drugs, of course.
. - One which does not give up?
. - Why? You can refuse
. When you understand that you will not need anyone to write frankly bad songs, you need to leave the music - on time and beautifully. No need to wait until everything will know that you're filled up, exhausted.
. - Why do you have to change his name to the nickname 'The Beast
'? In relation to you it sounds pretty lightly - it would be more punk mothers came.
. - And I do not think that it is not serious
. Simply, if a group is called 'Beasts
', then I - Beast
- Several union with the team. And as a group off - for professional quality or for reasons of friendship?
- First, it was important that people know how to play. (Laughs) But they were supposed to be real boys, that there was no discomfort with the need to tell each other something critical. We even have such mobile brigade, where we get together and take turns talking about each. And the one about whom we say must listen quietly. Then we disagree, but everyone takes me to the note, which to him is the claim, and possibly trying to mend. It's like a mirror: without considering each other's grievances. It helps, among other things.
- This interview will be released on the eve of New Year. There are some suggestions for your fans and our readers for the holiday?
- Older people - health, young - love and to have enough health to withstand all these holidays. And yet - be easier, not make life harder than it is!
- You already know where to celebrate New Year?
- Currently there. Maybe at a concert, but now I have no time to think about it: here come December 31, and then think about it.
- You prefer to live for today?
- Not quite so soon - deeds. In the near future I should finish it, two, three ... And I need to make sure. And what would happen next - I do not care. Do not make plans ahead, has not yet paid the obligation date,
