One of trendiest soviet song of season 1982-83: underground disco-rock smash “Karate” from “Leysya Pesnya” (“Flow Song”) group.

The song has never been officially released. This version is taken from bootleged live performance (1982).

    The karate track of the month most definitely. Love the Uma-Thurman-In-Kill-Bill-style outfit of the artist too but the cut itself is FIERCE.

    Yes, Jussi! 4 years later band changed its name to “Aria” and style — to heavy metal. 2nd singer of “Leysya Pesnya” found patriotic pop-rock collective “Lube” (in the name of native Moscow’s suburb — Lubertsy, the most criminal one in late 80’s). Both band are still active and greatly popular.
