Alexander Gradsky: "I do not think something bad «mate»Чт, 31/05/2012 - 13:03
In the Volga singer spoke about the rules of banter, "Buranovskie grandmothers" and "Curiosities"
"The first time I was with you in the 75th or 76th " - began communicating with the public , Alexander Gradsky - so today, perhaps my last concert in Volgograd region : in 37 years I'll have probably , fed up . " Not bothered, judging by how thoroughly (though not sold out ) was filled with DC " October" Volga . And this despite the fact that it was on Wednesday . However, people gathered to listen to familiar and favorite , was somewhat taken aback when, after the ritual , " We Were Young " became a musician to perform songs from his new album " Curiosities ". Acutely journalistic flavored salty epithets . Sensitively capturing the confusion of the hall, Gradsky picked up a guitar and restored the lyrical line. The singer's voice is still strong and unique, so nostalgic evening proceeded to mutual satisfaction . VOLZHANKA regularly gave flowers , and the singer was surprised : " Wow, you smell like roses , while in Moscow for some reason - no." After the concert Gradsky gave a special interview to our newspaper . P>
- Alexander, the album " Curiosities " was released in 2011 , opposition to the unrest , and most of the songs in it - sharp journalistic ... Why? Time is ? P>
- journalistic ? Yes, perhaps there is even a bias in this strontium . Although there is a song written and ten , and fifteen years ago. And about the time ... I do not know . In Ascension , remember: " What time in the yard, this is the messiah »? P>
- A profanity why? That , without a mat on our lives is not you say?
- In use , when talking to friends , I use a mat and do not consider it a bad thing . Note , in any language is no longer such a vast reservoir of foul language , words, deemed " bad ." Although the offense is an offense , when you put it in an offensive sense. Russian language is rich , and there are times when profanity is appropriate if you want to assess the situation harder and more accurately. As for the literary text has a value that is poetry or simply rude. Mayakovsky's poems - remember , about a ... " The bully yes syphilis ", published in his collected works . Pushkin wrote of himself: " ass leaning against the granite with Monsieur Onegin worth it." Well, Pushkin could not write " ass "! He wrote under the artistic sense. What is the " pop " when it comes to men. A woman can still be a " pop ." As for the mat in my songs , I confess, I doubt showed different people , trying to think differently. But 99% of those with whom I consulted said they did not need to touch anything . P>
- recently published a book of your poems ' Favorites »... p>
- Just decided to publish all that I wrote and sang for many years. Because faced with the fact that people rehashing my songs by ear , some garbled words . Then it all hit the Internet . And I started to ask questions: " What did you mean by singing this and that ." And it's not my phrase ! And I decided to post it to be known that I actually sang. Although I do not consider myself a poet . P>
- Classic , ballads , rock - what do you prefer ? p>
- All . But I do not sing jazz , but it's not hard for me vocally . Just - not mine. In fact, is not so important: classic rock . When you manage to do that the public knows your first and last name - it's the most important thing . Name and surname of the artist - is a whole world , and did not need any adjectives . P>
- « Buranovskie grandmother" made ??in "Eurovision" , and very successfully. Are there any more competitions, where important voice of singer , not the show?
- Postmodernism continues ? p>
- I think so . And in some ugly form . On something to make fun of them , it is necessary to create lasting values ??. Relatively speaking, for making fun of Mozart, Mussorgsky , Babajanyan , Pahmutova , it is necessary that they be . And then the banter too, is talented or not. One thing is the work of Salvador Dali. Another thing, when some crazy painting of Christ with Coca-Cola , and paints a bad thing, because that just is not able to draw . When there is no value , but simply for the sake of banter banter - is becoming boring. As for the competition , it often happens that overcomes some bullshit. Another start to unwind , to fork out the money - still no one is listening . P>
- Or , on the contrary , they all listen ... p>
- Yes. I myself sometimes go and sing some yogurt advertising , because it is constantly on the TV. Even the most stupid , ill- made melody , you can stick in your head that you will not know where to get away from it . Well, I - it's okay , as zadurili head, so I did , and I will cleanse . A young man ! We stood on the path along which the European world , losing their culture : English, Spanish , French . Youth is on the way primitive entertainment, sports , stupid jumping . This has already happened in history : the separation of high art for the elite and area - for the people. But the development is a sine curve : the decline now , then someday will rise .
