Sektor Gaza

Sektor Gaza (Сектор Газа, Gaza Strip; also sounds like "gas sector" in Russian) was the name of a well-known pseudo-punk rock band from Voronezh, Russia, founded in 1987. Apart from the band leader, Yuri Nikolaevich Klinskikh (nicknamed Hoy) all other band members were replaced over time. The band's style of music can be described as primitive two-accords music with rude and unculture lyrics; the content varied from political songs to mystical songs about zombies and vampires, as well as interpretations of Russian folk songs and rock ballads and rap.

The band's name is apparently an homage to Levoberezhny (Left bank), the ghetto-like district of their home town, Voronezh, which was also ironically referred to as Gaza Strip by its residents. Phrase Сектор Газа also means gas sector in Russian, so the name puns on both pollutedness and high level of common crime and domestic violence in the district. In one of their earliest songs, the band claims that the town is so polluted that nobody ever reaches the age of 40. Indeed, in 2000, the band leader Yuri Hoy died at the young age of 36 from a heart failure (which in fact might be caused by extensive drug use).
