Grazhdanskaya Oborona-Optimizm (1985)

Weird, amazing, lofi punk from the Gorby-era USSR. These guys spent years on the run from the KGB for playing punk-how many of us are that committed, eh?
The standout track for me is "Na nasyh glazah"-it sounds like a Lee Scratch Perry tune that morphed into a feedback-tinged Russian ballad about...I dunno what. Shit roolz.
Oh, and Vice Magazine apparently approves of 'em. Don't be deterred.

Read about 'em
