Наив is russian band. The leader of the group is Alexander “ChaCha” Ivanov (vocals), the director of the group is Dmitri “Snake” Khakimov.

::The history of the group::
The beginning:
NAIVE was formed in the army in the autumn of 1988 by two private soldiers Aleksander Ivanov and Maksim Kochetkov. This is already quite unusual for a punk group. The next year is considered to be the beginning of the “civillian period” in the band’s development: after the army, some members of the group “Rock-laboratory” joined NAIVE, and then in 1990 they recorded their first album “Switch-Blade Knaife on the American label “MaximumRock’N’Roll”.
Their debut album “Switch-Blade Knaife”(1991) kept its position in the charts of several national radio stations for many months and secured 6th place in record sales of punk-rock albums in the USSR.
In the summer of 1992, NAIVE performed with the group “Millions of Dead Cops” in DK Gorbunova in Moscow, Russia.
NAIVE’s second album “Piva Dlya Naiva”(Beer for NAIVE) was followed by a European tour organized by Dutch company “Subvert Productions” in 1993. They played in Finland, Norway, Denmark, Sweden, Germany, Belgium, Holland, Austria, Switzerland, Czechoslovakia and Italy. In total they played 40 concerts (10 with the band “Coffin Break” from Seattle and one show with “Coffin Break” and “D.O.A.”).
