Jaroslav Švelch

Account of Czech underground rock music of the 60s, 70s and 80s when rock music was considered suspicious and counterrevolutionary by the communist government. The bands and fans were operating illegally or semi-illegally which gave rise to specific models of fan communities. Features rare audio and historical documentation to show the cultural context of media during that period.
