Alliance - Na zare

The history of the song and the group "Alliance", as well as the reaction of the Mexican and a cover in the style of the USSR

Alliance - At dawn - a song lost in time ...

Remember "Alliance" and their main hit "At Dawn"? Someone remembers, someone no longer knows, and someone did not know, and does not know this quiet masterpiece, born in the USSR. We didn't know anything about the band members, their history (until now) and the fact that the band still exists. However, we always recognize their lingering refrain at any time of the day or night:

“For-re-e-e-e-e-e-e-voices call-u-u-u-t me-I-I-I-I!”

Yes, of course, someone knows “At Dawn” thanks to the most famous cover of this song by Evgeny Grishkovets, Renars Kaupers (from the Brainstorm group) and the Curler group. However, the guys only revived it and created a more modern version, by the way they succeeded ...

However, the original is still better!

Short history of the group

Alliance Group
Alliance Group

The moment of the birth of the "Alliance" can be considered the performance of the group on the stage of the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology. It was 1982, and it was a festival in Dolgoprudny. Then the young guys liked the public, the audience fell in love with them. Among the new fans of their work was the sound engineer Igor Zamaraev, who offered his help and invited the guys to record in his studio.

The artistic director of the Kostroma Philharmonic also did not remain indifferent and helped the guys in organizing a tour of the USSR. However, as soon as the group began its path to success, a commission from Moscow rejected the group, referring to the fact that "Alliance is an unprincipled group." Later it turned out that the group was on the same honorary black list of banned bands. After some time, the Alliance broke up.

Rebirth and making a hit

The group managed to find the strength in itself to revive the team. In 1986, the vocalist, guitarist and frontman of the group remembered the very help that Igor Zamaraev promised them. Of course, the sound engineer was happy to help the guys. It was in his studio "Alliance" that he recorded the hit for all times "At the Dawn". Fun fact: the recording of the song in the studio lasted only 4 hours.

The authorship of the composition belongs to Oleg Parastaev. It was he who composed the music and lyrics. It was not possible to find out the true meaning of the song from the author. Maybe this shouldn't be done? Everyone finds his own in this deep composition.

The song was released as part of the Alliance 87 album, the latter meaning the year of release. "At Dawn" is still the group's biggest hit... It is included in the list of the 100 best songs of Russian rock of the twentieth century (according to "Nashe Radio").

History with video blocking

YouTube video hosting blocked the channel of the composer Oleg Parastaev when he published another (second) video “At the Dawn” of 1987 on April 5, 2019.

— My channel was blocked with the wording for spam, deception and fraud. I myself am confused- said Oleg Parastaev.

Youtube considered a sharp jump in views on the musician's channel as unnatural and twisted. Well, what did you want? Over 500,000 people watched the clip in a day. Many modern artists fail to do this ... Fortunately, Youtube soon unblocked Oleg, and the views went further up. Now their number has exceeded 3.5 million!
