that's saying something)' Time Out
The Commissar continues to pledge:
UK debut of French Roma band Gadjologie, Angelina and the Gipsy
Punks, Bow Mods, Zoe Klinger's Friends of Gagarin, Lenin's Talkin'
Blues project, and Mishka the Bear, Max Reinhardt & Misha Maltsev
sweating it out in the Gypsy Diskoteka til' the road of excess has
led us to the place of wisdom. Early evening come to cool your soul
with summer home-cookin in the Kitschen and new and classic shorts
from Eastern Europe.
Radio Gagarins' bi-monthly Experiments in Sunday Socialism sessions
