Civil Defence - Filthy Youth

Civil Defense. I used the term 'minimalist' to describe a band a few days ago. Well... THIS is minimalist. Grazhdanskaya Oborona (Civil Defense to us Yanks) is credited with being one of the first punk bands in Russia, if not THE first. Preaching social dissidence in Communist Russia (or any of these Eastern Bloc countries) could not have been easy. It took guts. The music is fairly slow punk tunes.
