Unknown Track- Ensemble "New Elektron"
Some surf music from 1960's Soviet Union!
Some info in broken english:
In 1963, Radio Yunost announced a new young group - quartet Electron. "We decided to call our ensemble so, - wrote the head of "Electron" Valery Prikazchikov - not only because it is based on electric tools (instruments). We want to make sure that the execution is modern. Thus I thought the name "Electron" expressed our desire." Today Electron - a popular variety of ensembles, has performed successfully in many cities of the country with programmes and recitals with famous artists of pop. True, its composition has changed over the years, hence the different name - "The New Electron." The artistic director - still Valery Prikazchikov (electric guitar), the other members: - B. Gerkulenko (rhythm guitar), Vladimir Pankratov (drums), Vladimir Zaikin (bass guitar). The main repertoire of the New electron: "- pop - dance music, with a vivid and clear rhythm and original instrumentation. So hear "The New Electron" - performing dance pieces by Soviet & foreign composers with arrangements by Valery Prikazchikov
