All about the group "Dune": composition, success, hits

"Dune" was and remains to this day a beloved by many domestic musical group, which gave listeners a sea of funny hits (among the most famous are "Limonia Country", "Communal Apartment" and others…) Educated in 1987 year, she quickly found success! Already at the beginning 90s the music of "Dune" came from almost every "iron"! The audience was bribed by light and ironic lyrics, uplifting ... And who would have thought that this group began its journey with hard rock! Actually, it is. Having survived the peak of popularity, "Dune" successfully exists to this day, and their funny comical clips are still relevant even among young people! One of the brightest voices of the perestroika era - we invite you to recall the history of this legendary group together ...

How the composition was formed

"Dune" was educated in 1987 year Sergei Katin (bass) and Dmitry Chetvergov (guitar) however Victor Rybin claims that he and Katin, his old friend, created the group ... Actually, let's not stray from the topic. So, in addition to the mentioned persons, the drummer Andrey Shatunovsky and vocalist Andrey Rublev (later they will leave the group). The already mentioned Rybin became the director, however, according to Wikipedia, Viktor Viktorovich calls this information “complete nonsense”.

The group initially worked in Moscow Regional Philharmonic and played hard rock - a very fashionable genre of music at that time ... However, popularity bypassed them until Rybin and Katin did not catch the mood of the public and did not decide to change the musical style of "Dune".

Change of style and first successes

Yes, in 1988 year in sound "Dunes" cardinal changes have taken place… We can say that the band's musical concept has been turned upside down! Now the band focused on simpler, more humorous and cocky material... By the way: Rybin and Katin did not fail, and very soon the group became popular! Themselves Rybin and Katin became the indivisible creative core of the team…

For a whole year, the group "traveled" around the country, performing with other philharmonic players. In the same period, the first breakthrough hit "Dunes", which will eventually become their lucky ticket to Olympus ...

The main stages of creativity and the main hits

Widely known "Country Limonia", which has become the hallmark of the group over the years, was written by Sergey Katin. The lyrics of the hit are full of irony over what is happening in the late 80s in the country ... Under the word "Lemon" (as it is not difficult to guess) it means rubles that have lost their value ...

A curious fact, but at first Katin sold his creation Larisa Dolina! She performed "Limonia" in a rock arrangement as part of the Musical Ring program, but its version was not so popular ... Later, the group re-recorded Limonia, including balalaika in the arrangement, after which Dune and the Valley became a kind of enemy (their hostility continued until the end 90s...) However, this no longer mattered after the song got into the Musical Elevator program: "Country Limonia" instantly became a big hit! The song was very liked by domestic listeners, and over time it completely became the hallmark of the team ...

A new decade has begun for "Dunes" with new victories! The group was invited to close the Soundtrack festival in the Olympiysky ... Having performed their signature song, the young team received wild applause! Unfortunately, not everything went so smoothly ... Very soon (due to post-Soviet censorship), Dune was denied access to television. And cost them a song "Drink, Vanya, don't get sick!" sound on the channel "2x2", as the leadership "had lost their heads"!

But despite all these difficulties, popularity "Dunes" growing rapidly day by day...

Line-up changes and new hits

In 1992 year Sergei Katin unexpectedly immigrated to France, due to which writing lyrics for songs fell on the shoulders Rybina… So, hit songs are born soon "Machine gun" and "Borka-womanizer"! By the way: the music video for the song "Machine Gun" was one of the brightest and non-standard for its time: a plasticine video sequence, an absurd scenario ... However, all these details perfectly characterized the band's style!

A year later, the group experienced a tragedy - he died during the tour. Alexander Maleshevsky, one of the most charismatic members of the team ... In 1995 year, Katin returned to the lineup, and soon after his return, a hit called "Communal apartment"!

In the future, the group annually released albums that invariably find their audience. In general, during their career, the team has released almost two dozen discs!

Of course, over the years, the group has lost its relevance and popularity… Today, their songs are no longer heard on the radio, and almost nothing is heard about them on television… However, truly devoted fans have not turned away from the band! From time to time for them "Dune" gives concerts. Yes, in 2017 year, the group performed at the Moscow club Yotaspace with an anniversary concert "30 best songs in 30 years"!

In addition, Dune members often perform in St. Petersburg ...
