NARKOMFIN conducted the first audit

“We got together with the guys a couple of weeks before the concert … There were only a few rehearsals, all great professionals. After two albums it was not clear, after all, this is not a Selfieman at all. We did not know how people would perceive what was happening … ”, says Stravinsky about his new project.

The first concert of the new project of Nikolay Stravinsky NARKOMFIN took place in one of the small metropolitan clubs. The musician presented immediately two albums that are directly related to each other, “Ulyanovsk” and “Hollywood”. Nikolai gained his fame thanks to his participation in the group “Cockroaches”, as well as the solo project Selfieman, which was very much loved by the public. His new brainchild is completely different from him. Here Nikolai acts as a vocalist, not a multi-instrumentalist, as the public used to see him. Invited musicians, such as Anacondaz guitarist Ilya Pogrebnyak, drummer Alexey Nazarchuk and bass guitarist Pavel Paukov, were a nice bonus for the fans.

The concert was filled with the atmosphere of the apartment. A small cozy playground gathered under its roof the most loyal admirers of Stravinsky. All songs sounded live for the first time, but the public was clearly prepared. All as one shouted from the crowd fragments of phrases from the compositions “Repost”, “Welcome to Hollywood”, and during the performance “In the rays of a stroboscope” the whole hall, following the text, unanimously called the “cops”. Insane, provocative punk fun, which permeated the lyrics and music of the group, was followed by elegant, heartfelt lyrics. For the first time in his solo career, Nikolai went out for an encore to perform two final compositions, and later went into the hall to his fans. And anyone who wanted to talk with a musician, could boldly approach him, ask a few questions and get a professional photo as a gift. Although fame and money sometimes lead to the fact that musicians forget about people because of which they became popular, Stravinsky is one of those artists for whom resonance is really important.

Contrary to the famous saying about the “first pancake”, the project’s debut concert was a success, so the fanbase of the artist will probably only increase due to his new experiments. In parallel, the main activity of Nikolai for several years has been conquering Hollywood, but does not forget about his Russian audience.
