We are very pleased that our next live event will be London's biggest and best independent record store Rough Trade East in Brick Lane on March 9th. And we are even more pleased that we will be joined by legendary torch singer Marc Almond.
In the first half Stephen Coates will tell the story of the Soviet bone bootleggers and their x-ray recordings and in the second, Marc will perform two songs which will be recorded direct to x-ray by Aleks Kolowski.
In addition to his extraordinary pop career, Marc has a longheld love of Russian culture and song. In the 1990s he toured Siberia and recently presented a wonderful BBC Radio documentary about tragic Soviet singer Vadim Kozin. You can listen to that HERE
Kozin's records were copied to bone bootleg after his catastrophic fall from grace and imprisonment.
The event is free on a first come first served basis but you can guarantee entry by reserving a copy of our book 'X-Ray Audio: The Strange Story of Soviet Music on the Bone'.
