Egor Letov, Kontr Kult Ura i drugie
A little archive of texts about Russian music, mostly in KOI.
Interv'yu s samim soboi.
An interview of Egor Letov, visionary and musician, taken
from the last (ever) issue of ``Den''' newspaper (October 1993).
Some poetry of Egor appended. Those weak of heart are better off not
reading this article.
For the record, I am in complete agreement with Egor.
Here is the Russian
transliterated version, and here is
the KOI8 version.
A collection of annonated
links to other GO pages
is in my hotlist.
Another interview with Egor (KOI), 10.09.90. The best one, in
my opinion. He explains why it's necessary to spit in everybody's faces
to be free.

page about Rada & Ternovnik.
Everybody is invited.
Kontr Kult Ura

several articles from a Russian underground almanac Kontr Kult Ura,
all in KOI. Most of them I have not seen, because Relcom is not
available around Harvard. Please send me if you have something
that I don't have (not including stuff found on the
multitude of GO WWW pages).

Sergey Guriev ruminates on
Bedtime for Democracy.
Guriev's word for Kontr Kult Ura is ``egorotsentrizm''.
- A poem
of Sven Gundlakh. Taken from the first issue of Kontr Kult Ura.
Sven Gundlakh is a Russian avangardist and troublemaker, who was involved
in a ``musical'' group Mukhomor, along with such lights as
D. A. Prigov. Gundlakh was the one who said that Russian criminal
(``blatnye'') songs play in Russian music the same role blues
plays in rock-n-roll.

Vasha lichnaya zhizn' na lyubom etazhe
Na chetyre zamka - eto znachit uzhe
Ne vremya lyubit'. Ne vremya lyubit'.
Vse perestav', pereshchitai, Perestroy, perestrelyai,
Na paneli u Kremlya Znaet kazhdaya blya,
Tut kak vsio pereebis', Pyat'yu pyat' budet pyat'.
