Joanna Stingray’s Red Wave: “A Must-Read”

Notable Estonian promoter of Vesna Production, Anton Krilloff endorses Joanna Stingray’s rock ‘n’ roll memoir, Red Wave: An American in the Soviet Music Underground, below!

A must-read. Russian rock and Russian rock musicians were always the conscience of that brutal country that has very few democratic traditions. Back in the days of the Soviet Union, rock songs were the truth, the truth that was missing. When Russia’s war on Ukraine makes us watch in horror the criminal deeds of Putin’s army and how he has weaponized Russian culture, many Russian rock musicians continue to stand up to Putin and oppose this war. It would be hard to understand where these musicians got this courage without reading Joanna Stingray’s Red Wave.
