‘From Brigada-S to Neprikasayemye" is a concert to be given by the Russian rock musician Igor (Garik) Sukachev to mark 15 years of activity on Russia’s rock stages. In addition to new songs by the Neprikasayemye (Untouchable) band, the concert will include the old hits of Brigada-S, for which purpose the band, which was disbanded by Sukachev in 1993, will re-unite for just one night. In addition, the concert will involve Sukachev’s friends who are distinguished representatives of Russian rock: namely Andrei Makarevich, Alexander Sklyar, Alexei Romanov, Sergei Galanin and Sergei Voronov.
"We have just returned from a guest tour around Estonia," Garik Sukachev said. "We gave concerts in Tallinn and Narva, then it suddenly hit me that the first full-fledged performance of Brigada-S was in Tallinn and its last appearance was in Narva in 1992. I thought it was a sign from fate. I listened to our old songs and it dawned on me that Bridaga-S was an outstanding band. Realizing this made me very happy."
Igor Sukachev became famous in 1986 at the "Rock-Yolki", Russia’s first-ever festival of underground music, where the then two-year-old Brigada-S presented its third album.
Brigada-S rapidly gained popularity when it appeared at the "Russian Woodstock" festival in Podolsk, undertook joint projects with such famous musicians as Howard Jones and UB-40 and participated in one of the biggest European festivals, Provincy-Rock, together with Red Hot Chili Peppers.
In 1993 Garik Sukachev disbanded Brigada-S and, two years later, founded a new band, Neprikasayemye, which has proven to be even more successful. Neprikasayemye has, to date, recorded two albums, made a number of far-reaching guest tours and been filmed in several music videos.
