Making music on the fringe since the underground movement ignited in Russia in the beginning 80s, Alexei Borisov has developed an impressively diverse body of work as a member of NIGHT PROSPEKT, F.R.U.I.T.S. and VOLGA, among many other projects.
Born in Moscow on December 7, 1960, Alexei Borisov graduated the Moscow State University where he had studied History and Arts. His controversial performing career (as a guitarist) began in the CENTER new-wave group, in 1980. Next year, he formed the PROSPEKT mod-band. And re-loaded it in 1985 as the shifting NIGHT PROSPEKT with then-partner Ivan Sokolovsky. After the actual dissolution of the band in the beginning 90s, he surfaced then in the “noise reconstruction and techno acoustics” duo F.R.U.I.T.S. with Pavel Zhagun (also known as PIEZO) and in various short-lived art/noise/industrial acts like JOINT COMMITTEE, ATOMIC BISQUIT ORCHESTRA and SEVER.
