'사회주의'와 재즈&록 #2

Possibly you remember my contribution on Rodong Shinmun's article "Jazz and Rock Music Killed Socialism!"...


Well, first of all the "socialism" in the former East Block has been killed first and foremost by the (self-appointed "socialist", but in reality revisionist) ruling class, and not by "jazz and rock music".


But
Rodong Shinmun isn't complete wrong! In almost all European "socialist" countries (except Albania) a new youth culture(*) - predominantly represented by unconventional Pop music (Rock'n' Roll, Blues, Rock and since the late 70s Punk) - undermined (successfully!!) almost all efforts of the ruling class to discipline their youngsters.


One of the most famous examples is
The Plastic People of the Universe(PPU), a rock band founded 1968 in the ČSSR, the foremost representative of Czechoslovakia's underground culture.

 


Last month the Guardian (UK) published following very interesting article (MUST READ!!) on the PPU:
1989 and all that: Plastic People of the Universe and the Velvet Revolution

 

The "Second Festival of the Second Culture", organised by the PPU

(most of whom are on the far right of the shot) in Bojanovice on 21 February 1976.

Within a month, 27 of the musicians pictured here had been arrested.


 

  

* Also the capitalist world, primarily in Europe and the U.S., has been undermined by a new (progressive) movement! At least since the early 1960s the new youth culture - predominantly represented by rock music combined with with some radical left ideas (maoism, anarchism...) - changed almost all parts of the oldfashioned oppressive societies, especially in West Europe.
