Vyacheslav Butusov was born in Bugach Settlement, near Krasnoyarsk, in the Krasnoyarsk Region. Because of his father's profession, he lived and studied in different places of Siberia during his early life. In ninth grade they moved to Sverdlovsk (today Yekaterinburg), where he studied in Sverdlovsk Architectural Institute. He participated in the design of Sverdlovsk Metro.

Nautilus Pompilius (1982-1997)

When a first-year student of Sverdlovsk Architectural Institute he got acquainted with musician Dmitry Umetsky. The two young men were keen on music and often gathered to play together. This resulted in recording of Nautilus Pompilius’s first and not quite successful album Pereyezd (Relocation) (1982–1983). In the same year Butusov met the poet Ilya Kormiltsev. Together with him Vyacheslav Butusov recorded his first mature album Nevidimka (An Invisible) in 1985. Next year their tandem released the record Razluka (Absence / Separation), which evoked terrific popularity of Nautilus Pompilius. The band’s last album Yablokitai was recorded by Butusov and Kormiltsev in 1996 in England with participation of Boris Grebenshikov and English musician Bill Nelson who became its producer.

After Nautilus Pompilius disbanded, Butusov launched his solo career. In 1997, he recorded Nezakonnopozhdenniy AlKhimik doktor faust pernatiy zmey with Yuri Kasparyan, and in 1998, his first solo album, Ovaly. During this years he also had a brief cameo in Russian crime film Brother, directed by Aleksei Balabanov. He also recorded some songs for the soundtrack of the film.
