    • You too, huh? Then again, Punk in Russia and the East Bloc in general was a LOT more subversive that it ever was over here.

  1. The good old days! Today everyone is just a cookie cutter image of everyone else, and styles have not changed much over the last 20 years.

  2. All eastern block countries people look similar because they had no money to buy clothes to look different. East Germany was still in the same condition after WW2. I know I live in West Germany the Soviet Union destroyed it.

      • Mercal, In the old days, punks always made do with what they could scrounge up from whatever sources, as they didn’t have the cash to buy over priced cr** at some fancy ‘Punk Boutique’ like Hot Topic or what have you.

        Also Ayaa, I’m not in any way supporting Mercal’s comment, but Brezhnev did a first rate job of running the old Soviet Union into the ground, so in a way your comment seems to be like the pot calling the kettle black.

        • But you dont hear me blaming everyone else for Russias problems.

          On the other hand, Mercal, (except for when he is busy claiming Russia to be 100% militarized or that Russia is the USSR), makes sure in every comment that he blames Russia/USSR for all of lifes problems.

  3. even odder is the guy wearing a RUN DMC t shirt standing beside the Motorhead guy. not something you see every day. the only cross over Run DMC did was with Aerosmith.

  4. They were expressing themselves!That is what freedom was all about.Although I don’t think the CCCP had much freedom,so they were rebels!

  5. an intellectual/experimental movment?? or just a bunch of 90´s junkies? if they are in amerika, just do the second. some pics are fun, like the guy holding the skull. others like the guys with the confederate flag…..uhmmm no comments.

  6. They’re not at all weird. They’re like every other group of teenagers from those decades. I love that they had the courage to be themselves. I can imagine they grew up into happy adults.

    I only wonder where they got some of the clothes they were wearing. I don’t believe that they had access to certain clothes in their stores.
