The Vivisectors

Gulag Tunes

Here's one to check out for sure. The Vivisectors are dishing up 16 surf/instro tunes based on Russian jailhouse songs. Man, it's great when an intriguing concept comes together with trad underpinnings. Prison songs are very popular in Russia. Why is criminal music so popular there? Because melody and harmony developed from Russian roots music is very engaging. The Vivisectors play traditional jailhouse songs in a surf manner to make this strange trashy style accessible. Phil Dirt writes: "What a cool concept. Ever since I heard The Fat Man and Team Fat cover the "Volga Boatman," I thought Russian prisoner and work songs would be great to cover."
