I have been thinking of doing an article about Chernila dlya pyatogo klassa ( Чернила для пятого класса) for quite a while. The group was formed in 1992 by Sergey Kuznetsov who is the producer and composer behind Steklovata ( СТЕКЛОVАТА ) , New Forms ( НОВЫЕ ФОРМЫ ) , Alis and many other well-known formations . Worth mentioning is the soloist of Chernila dlya pyatogo klassa – Igor Veryaskin who started working with Sergey from the age of twelve . Before that he used to sing in a local choir. He appearance in the group video clips is quite memorable . I picked two of my video clips for this entry – but if you like them you will find many at youtube and the official site of Chernila.
My favorite clip :
ya tebe obyavlau voinu
…and another one which always brings smile to my face :
The music of Chernila is lyric , with a lot of guitar vibes and even saxophone . The group was lucky that soon after its formation they were Sergey found a sponsor which allowed them to establish a studio they can work at. In the years to come they produced quite a few albums which I enjoy listening to.
Nowadays Igor Veryaskin lives in the capital and composes his own music.
