Biography of Sergei Shnurov
Born as the destroyer of canons and the troublemaker Sord (as it is called by the people) in the northern capital, in a family far from music: Nadezhda Evdokimovna and Vladimir Pavlovich were engineers. In his school years, Seryozha was a hooligan boy, but he remained so. Music was his biggest hobby, he even went to the music school for five years. It is true, as the musician himself later admitted, he can not tolerate the violin, in the class he studied. From the eighth grade Sergei started studying rock music.
Where should the son of engineers continue his studies after graduation? Of course, at the Leningrad Institute of Civil Engineering. Sergey soon got bored with studying technique. He decided to become a restorer, for which he graduated from the university.

Then he went to the Religious and Philosophical Institute of the Faculty of Philosophy, but he also threw this university. However, the benefits of his study were all the same: Shnurov's speech was enriched with complex words that he no longer feared.
Strings and music
At the same time Sergei Shnurov realized his childhood dream: he became a musician and created the Alkorepitsa group (1991), which played in the style of hardcore rap. Two years later the ensemble collapsed and Sergei founded an electronic music band called Van Gogh's Ear.

I had to work as a loader, and even as a guard at a kindergarten.
On January 9, 1997 Sergei Shnurov created the Leningrad group. Sergey did not immediately become the soloist of the group, but only two years later. Initially he was a bass player.

In 2008 Sergey Shnurov announced the closure of the Leningrad group. And on September 26, 2008 the musician created the ruble group.
"Pity is an unproductive feeling, I drive it on myself and with success, I never regret what I did."
