Sektor Gaza (Russian: Сектор Газа, literally sector of gas or Gaza Strip) was a Russian rock band formed on 5 December 1987 in the city of Voronezh, Russia. Despite only semi-officially existing (due to obscene lyrics), the group remains popular in Russia today. The group name was taken from an eponymous industrial district of Voronezh (itself named for high levels of environmental contamination). Their music style could be defined as Russian punk, integrated with elements of different musical genres such as rock, rap, and Russian folk.
A punk-opera named "Kaschey-the-immortal" was released in 1994. It is a punk version of a famous Russian fairy tale with the name of the evil protagonist taken as its title. In this album Yuri has borrowed musical themes from a number popular groups such as AC/DC, Queen, Ace of Base, Nirvana, infusing them with his own lyrics. The album ranked in the top 10, and journalists called "SG" "a young promising group from the back of beyond".
The group released four videoclips: "Kolkhoz punk", "Lyric", "The fog" and "It's time to return home". Together with DJ Mole Yuri arranged some "SG" remixes in techno. "SG" uses curse words in their songs, but this was rarely seen in any of their concert performances. Klinskikh was quoted as stating, "I am using four letter words not for the sake of it...our songs are for those who can understand us. If you're stupid, you remain the same after the concert".
