UC303 - UC 304 - 60s (mostly) Uncomped – Cracks in the Iron Curtain, pts. 10 + 11


Exactly one year ago, we’ve had the last Cracks in the Curtain, so I’m proud to present parts 10 and 11. Many of the artists featured  here are true martyrs of the Beat: as reported, “The Minister of Culture believed that the musical culture did not comply with the moral traditions of the USSR, is devoid of patriotism, imitates Western culture and adversely affects the education of modern youth, is ugly, immoral, cynical, accompanied by frequent riots.” .More or less the same goes for many of the groups from the Commi states (with the exception of Hungarian groups like Hungaria, Atlantis, and Metro, maybe) who often had to innovate their equipment and recording facilities from scratch. I’ve included tracks from (ex - ) Yugoslavia, although the nation is generally not tagged as "behind the Iron Curtain” but musicians sure had to fight similar constrains, such as heavy fee, confiscate of instruments, criminal charges, even jail. And no English singing, please. Along with the evident language barrier, this might explain why most bands, from ‘67 on, recorded in their native (Russian, Czechoslovakian, Hungarian ) language. So prepare for some unheard Beat from better or lesser known groups, and welcome some fabulous musicians presented here for the first time. I’ve grazed the prairies from the Ural down to Kazakhstan, and from the Baltic Sea to Budapest, and I’m not sure if there’s any nuggets left I didn’t find. But you never know, right? (I hope you’ll dig the group shots in the booklet!)
