Korpus 2 (Корпус 2) biography
KORPUS 2 (Корпус 2) is an art rock band from Saint Petersburg formed in the early 80's by musician Vadim NOVIKOV.

Born in Wittstock in 1957, NOVIKOV's family at the turn of the 70's moved to Russian Federation and in Pushkin. In 1975 he went into the army, picked up a bass guitar and he made his debut playing in his garrison. Two years later he came back as a musician and started getting involved with bands in the Vologda region where he was present on both live and studio work, while trying to attend his education at the university. At this time the groups he was working with mostly played covers of Western hard rock and the original compositions he made were in the same style.

Their debut album in 1987 however didn't get much attention and destabilization of the line-up followed with some replacements and a stronger horn section. In 1988 they released their second album 'Want Nothing To Want (Or Do Not Want)' which had a hit in the title song and made the band think more about the studio material. By 1990 multiple line-up changes followed and the group lost some of the mainstream appeal to audiences.

In 1991 the group found itself at their probably most ambitious peak when they started working on three different albums in the spring time; the trilogy of albums that started of with 'Rice' and 'To You, Sweetheart!' was unfortunately cut short and the planned purely instrumental 'Solovetsky Dances' was never finished. Nevertheless, these albums were one of the most eclecti...
