If you really want to know what I look like, you can use the Morph website and put together a photo of Hector Barbossa and one of Shia Labeouf and it will create my portrait 94% of the time.
Soviet-era bootleg recordings of banned Western music pressed on discarded X-ray plates.
Worth noting that while the Soviet authorities recognized certain aspects of western popular culture as a threat (American jazz and blues were promoted through the 1920s and 1930s as representative of the struggle against colonial hegemony), they felt that policing youth culture was beneath them. Although harsh sentences were imposed and an explicit list of banned artists was created (it came far too late to have any impact and included Blondie, The Clash, Talking Heads, and Pink Floyd’s post-1976 discography), the actual policing was left to the Komsomol, the youth wing of the Communist Party, most members of which were avid black market record collectors and more interested in setting up concerts for their garage bands (under the guise of “talent shows” or “celebrations for National Geologist Day”) than to try to defend against western pop culture.
Also the technical term for this type of recording is “rock on bones,” which is pretty metal (despite the fact that most of these recordings came from the late 1940s-early 1960s and were mostly either boogie-woogie jazz or rockabilly).
Have some really fucking cool history!
