Band info: Miladojka Youneed was Slovenian free punk/funk/jazz band formed in 1985 in former Yugoslavia. Their style was defined as pop-core, acid-metal and synthetic-trash.
Their's musical work, although hard to classify, provokes a lot of different, mostly superlative interpretation and marked significant changes in experiencing contemporary popular art.
By synthesizing different musical genres MYN gather fans of Butthole Surfers and Art Of Noise, Kraftwerk and Motorhead, Lounge Lizards and No means No. They know how to be easy and they know how to be brutal but they are always effective as they are dealing with totality.
In 1986. they released their first cassette, under the slovenian independent label of alternative music, founded by the members of Borghesia and Disko FV, FC Založba.

Info od vydavateľa / Info from editor:
A stay in economically war-damaged Armenia in the Summer of 1993 and the meeting of those dedicated Yerevan engineer punks and underground musicians, struggling under unbelievable harsh conditions, compelled us to release this wonderful Soviet-styled punk record. All musicians are now living in exile in Moscow. The band later released a split 7" with Roh Dae Woo (another Yerevan punk band) on Beer City in the US. (Luk Haas, Tian an men 89 rec.)

Na tri krátke otázky ohľadom nahrávania mi odpovedal ich frontman Aram / Short interview with Aram, frontman of the band, about recording session:
What kind of recording studio was that?
Aram: A guys from Accident, hard rock band, had a parents working in Project Institute.
So we have obtained few apartments to use for a while.
Guys brought all they have from elsewhere — various mixed equipment we’ve got.
Two tape-recorders, one was my own...
Which other bands recorded there? Were their recordings also released on media - CD, cassette?
Aram: Few bands, mentioned in MAXIMUMROCKNROLL publication, were making records there,
In the vast majority of cases I was on a mixer and tape recorders, since noone understood this technique.
I remember names only some of them: Accident, Aspet, Motel Blues… They have no any releases, as I know.
How did punk rock get to Armenia, a more or less Christian country?
Aram: I don't understand the question.
Is England (or UK) a "more or less Christian country" or not?
Punk was born in England, wasn't it?
Our friend Luk found punks even in wild muslim countries like Iran, Albania or somewhere else, I don’t care…
Punk was not so popular in Armenia, rock’n’roll was not the most popular style in Armenia, armenians love to listen much more jazz-rock, r’n’b, funk, jazz… except for those who listen to pop music, and they gravitate towards various oriental styles inspired by the cultures of neighboring countries - Greek, Persian, Arab, Turkish…
This explain why songs of NATO were in russian.
The first album was called «Russian rock. Bottled in Armenia»
The orange 7’’ EP with yellow cover (released by Luk in Strasbourg) contains only half of the album.
However, the others do not deserve such attention...

Rozhovor s Mykelom Boardom, bloggerom a svojho času aj stĺpčekárom fanzinu Maximum Rocknroll, o jeho spomienkach na cestovanie po východnej Európe.
Mykel má už väčšinu veci tak trochu v hmle, niektoré veci nesedia, ale niet sa čo čudovať, mnohé udalosti sa stali pred viac ako 30-timi/40-timi rokmi a Mykel má už po 70-tke.
Rozhovor sme viedli v angličtine.
I will write something about myself in short. My friend and I are mapping the independent fanzine scene in the environment of the former ČSSR, but also the current fanzine scene.
Web page: http://ziny.info/
I have been an irregular reader of the MRR fanzine since 1999. I visited New York in 2005 – CBGB´s was just few days before closing, but I found and visited nice places like Abc No Rio, Groud Zero, Hotel Chelsea, Brooklyn Bridge, Harlem, Central park, Broadway, St. Mark Street, Downtown...etc.
Later, I also visited countries, which you mentioned as well: Estonia, Lithuania and Latvia, as well Bulgaria.
I would like to hear your experiences...from your perspective.

Rozhovor s Askarom Urmanovom z uzbeckej punk/art/performance kapely TUPRAKTIKON´S.
Na kapelu TUPRAKTIKON´S som natrafil pri počúvaní LP platne V/A Paxta-Core Underground Uzbekistan (Tian An Men 89 rec., 2006). Toto leto hrali aj v severných Čechách na festivale Eastern Tunes a taktiež jedno divadelné predstavenie v Prahe. Žiaľ, nevyšlo mi pozrieť si ich naživo a tak som spravil aspoň krátky rozhovor.
Rozhovor sme viedli cez Messenger v angličtine. Ilustrovaný je Askarovými kresbami a artworkami.
M: Hello, are you more of a punk / rock band or theater?
A: The "Tupratikon's" are actually aliens who have come to earth in order to enslave this planet. They, being the best alchemists and tyrants of the galaxy, understand that it is easiest to control idiots. Taking advantage of the earthlings 'penchant for music, Kon's decide to finally incinerate the earthlings' brains with an alchemical cacophony of sounds used on their home planet to make pancakes. It remains only to take possession of all the radio stations and television of the planet. This is easy to do becoming mega stars ... sounds pretty crazy.
M: Do you have any kind of related bands you play with? Do you have a scene of related musicians (punk, art-punk, avant-rock), or are you more individualistic band?
A: We ourselves do not understand what we are. We have two main members. Me and Dr. Fox. And our friends, musicians, often different, help us. Who has free time.
I compose lyrics and very, very rarely primitive motive. Friends musicians come up with an arrangement or all the music. Then the second main participant and I joyfully sing these songs past the notes. This is how the "Tupratikons" group is born. Concerts are usually accompanied by a bit of goofy performances, but it's still not theatre. I am also an actor in the theater and a bit of a director. But it usually didn't overlap with what we do musically.
Once a play "Uncle's Dream" based on a play by Dostoevsky was staged at the Ilkhom Theater. I played one role in it and other actors sang our songs. But it was not yet the Tupratikons Theatre. This year we decided to compose a fairy tale performance about our totem animal. Which is the hedgehog Tupratikon. It was this performance that we showed this summer on eastern tunes.
So I don’t have an answer whether we are a musical group or a theater. After all, we also shoot video art, comic videos, Dr. Fox made a documentary about rock in Uzbekistan. And I'm also an artist.
So the Tupraticons launched their tentacles into all kinds of art.
M: I found an intersting introductory description on your old web-site:
The "Tupratikon's" are actually aliens who have come to earth in order to enslave this planet. They, being the best alchemists and tyrants of the galaxy, understand that it is easiest to control idiots. Taking advantage of the earthlings 'penchant for music, Kon's decide to finally incinerate the earthlings' brains with an alchemical cacophony of sounds used on their home planet to make pancakes. It remains only to take possession of all the radio stations and television of the planet. This is easy to do becoming mega stars ... sounds pretty crazy. What are the reactions to your concerts?
A: The site that you found was created a hundred years ago and we forgot about it a long time ago and lost all passwords. It's good that you reminded us of him. It's time to put these plans into practice before people kill themselves.
M: What is the punk/rock/alternative scene in Uzbekistan, what are the conditions for the bands? Are there clubs, recording studios and the possibility to release a recording?
A: There are, of course, audio recording options. But the choice is not great. We recorded our album, which we present in November or December, with our friends. Part of the bassist's office, and part of the house of a friend who then worked with the mixing and mastering of the album "Тупратиконs". He has his own lyrical project "Метод Тыка" and recently he became interested in post-punk and created the project "Если можно".
The guitarist in the past was the leader of the "Tears of the Sun" group, and now he is a member and producer of the "Electro-Oko" group, our drummer also plays there. Bass guitarist, leader of the "TS-band" group and all of them are musicians of the "Ilkhom" theater.
Of course, there are clubs where you can perform, but there is only one that focuses on rock music. The audience that listens to rock is also small. Therefore, groups rarely exist for a long time.
Here's another interesting story: Tupratikons has existed for a long time, but we rarely play concerts from time to time. They didn't do any sound recording at all. One day I had a dream (sleep) that our album would be recorded during the end of the world. And so we recorded the album and the end of the world seems to be near too.
But do not worry in this dream, I heard the refrain of a song that will save everyone. The main thing now is to compose the remaining verses and sing them like a dance mantra. And the end of this world will be the beginning of a new one.
M: Last question is about old punk/alterantive scene in Uzbekistan: Are any of these bands still active: Victim of Abortion, Kashpirovsky's alarm clock, Kishki Namotalo, Grandchester, Marija, Scissors, The Torture Budu...? How is current punk scene in Tashkent?
A: None of these groups have been around for a very long time.There is a group called "Икнайт" who define themselves as pop-punk, but lately they mostly play pop covers. And there is an electronic project "Dzen-punk"
M: Askar, thank you for answers and good luck with your band/theatre.
