разорви это и начни снова / энергетическая вспышка / roztrhněte to a začněte znovu


This month will see the publication in Russia of Rip It Up and Start Again: Postpunk 1978-84 by Shoom Press.  Translation by Ilya Miller

A virtual discussion of the book -   the author in dialogue with the critic Alexander Gorbachev -   organised by the British Council is happening on March 11 at 19-30 Moscow time. Details about how to attend here.

In other news, later this year  - late summer I believe - Energy Flash: A Journey Through Rave Music and Dance Culture is also coming out in a Russian translation, through the auspices of the publishing program of  the museum V-A-C (which stands for ‘Victoria – the Art of being Contemporary’). 

Finally, completing the penetration of the post-Communist East, there will be a Czech language version of Rip It Up coming out in a few months time via the publisher Volvox Globator
