How did the independent music ?

The modern music scene label ` nezavisimyy` is no surprise : independent groups became asthat the term has lost its value and importance. But in the 1980s, when the music has not yet become fully commercial, some groups still managed to remain independent. The most famous of such team was the `Big Black`, which was literally legendary. But why musicians `Big Black` not want mass popularity ? What they were guided by the rules ? And it so happened that 6 years of existence, the group left a noticeable mark on the world of music history ?

`Big Black` - popular American band formed in 1981 in Evanston, Illinois (Evanston, Illinois),and speaking in such styles as punk rock, alternative rock, noise- punk, post-punk and post-hardcore. Despite the fact that the band released only two studio albums - `Atomizer` 1986 and ` Songs About Fucking` 1987, - their musical path became famous far beyond the American hardcore scene. One reason for the success was the strict attitude of the band to the musical process and pop : not wanting to become slaves of the labels and record companies, musicians never allowed the producers to change and simulate their songs, and tried to stay as far away from the musical ` krugov` that, in their opinion,It consisted exclusively of people who just need someone else`s comfort and glory. As critics say, the musical philosophy of the group were able to do literally impossible: not only to oppose the `Big Black` popular culture, but give birth to a movement of the rebels against the system.

`Big Black` Group was founded in 1981 in Evanston ,Illinois. The original group consisted of vocalist and guitarist Steve Albini (Steve Albini), bassist Jeff Pezzati (Jeff Pezzati) and second guitarist Santiago Durango (Santiago Durango). The founder of the group was Steve Albini, who at that time, as well as other members of the group, was a student at Northwestern University ,where he studied journalism and art. Being an ardent fan of punk rock, he taught himself to play guitar and bass guitar. In college, he worked as a DJ at a local radio station, where they often come into controversy because of his radical musical tastes, and wrote in the column `Tired of Ugly Fat` in Chicago magazine ` Matter`,which gave readers a rather unusual perspective of the music scene of the time.

Some time Steve played in a band `Stations`, where he began using electronic drums, who subsequently became a classic sound ` Big Black`. The project itself, later admitted Albini, was founded for the sake of their musical experiments ;The band`s name was in honor of the eternal and universal image of fear as something huge and black. Soon Steve joined Jeff and Santiago, familiar with each other through the work of the joint musical project `Naked Raygun`. Thus the composition of `Big Black` and began to create.

Need to mark,that during the existence of the group has not received special popularity because of radical views, which at the moment is not particularly encouraged by the music community. However, some famous artist yet received : First, we should note the stylistic diversity of the group, which was not limited to punk rock ,but experimented with different genres, each finding something completely new. Interestingly, most of the records the band released on independent labels, trying to avoid the big companies and studios. So, on the whole, the group has been recognized as one of the most famous ` independent grupp` : these were among them of the rules ,as ` Respect for others any more than they zasluzhili`, ` avoid those who are too lstit`, ` communicate as much as possible outside the music krugov` and` Do not listen to anyone when rabotaete`.

Two group album, `Atomizer` and ` Songs About Fucking`, received mixed reviews after the release ,but after the collapse of the group received the recognition of fans and critics around the world, becoming a classic in the history of the development of such styles as punk rock and hardcore. The band broke up in 1987, and the band continued to work on solo projects. Over the next decades, their approach to the independent creativity was adopted by other groups and ,as many believe, the modern ` nezavisimye` groups owe their existence was ` Big Black`. In 1992, the musicians presented the latest work together - the collection `The Rich Man`s Eight Track Tape`.
