Here are a few shots of Russian youth from back in the Seventies. Mustaches and Beatle’s haircuts abound! For comparison, we also included some current day pictures of Russians (below).

Interesting note – this is a fake “Marshall” amp!  It was not possible to get foreign equipment in Soviet Russia behind the iron curtain, but you could replicate the logo and put it on your Russian amplifier to look cool.

    Lost generation of Russian youth.

  3. Openeyed says:

    Most of them look like a cross between The Bee Gees and the Beatles.

    The 10th picture looks like my neighbors

  5. Shawn says:

    As far as the “Marshall” amp is concerned, Sovtek’s Marshall copies were good amps after replacing the switches and jacks.

    Also, FWIW, the Marshall amps were Fender copies, which were basically developed from freely available Western Electric schematics.

  6. SSSR says:

    Those guys with the long hair look cool!

    The Soviet Union did not force them to cut their hair??

    Pizza photos are from modern photogame – guys just doing tasks.

  9. Steve says:

    So pic 10 was not downloaded from a rock album from the net!!?

  10. The girls in #4 and center of #6 are really cute!

    I wish pictures of this type had been widely available in the USA at the time. I grew up then, and still remember hearing a lot of anti-Soviet propaganda in school, that made it seem like nobody was allowed to dress like that or wear their hair like that.

    The “guys emerging from the rubbish chutes” pictures are really weird, though. Does anyone know what that was about? Just some goofy college prank or popular photo gag (like “holding up the Leaning Tower of Pisa”)?

      It was a kind of joke or “flash-mob” initiated by a russian web-site. Who would like to participate should make such a photo and send it to website. I think this series of photos are also published in another article of Englishrussia but can’t remember where.

    The guy in picture 12 has the exact same haircut as the antagonist in No Country for Old Men…

  12. Mr. says:

    The one with Marshall rocks! :D

  13. Poobar says:

    Do you think young girl on button worn by sex maniac in photo #9 knows that her life was in danger?

  14. Old Man says:

    #13 looks just like Anton Chigurh, the hitman from the movie No Country for Old Men!

  15. Rebecca says:

    ha ha ha ha

  16. Natasha says:

    The pictures of people popping out garbage chutes are funny and scary all at the same time :)

  17. TheDudeYouHateToMeet says:

    wouldn’t it be funny if they fell down the garbage chutes?
