Mongol Shuudan (band)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Mongol Shuudan (Russian: Монгол Шуудан, IPA: [mɐnˈɡoɫ ʂu.uˈdan]) is a rock band formed in Moscow in 1988.

"Монгол Шуудан" means "Mongol Post" in the Mongolian language. This unusual choice is explained by the band vocalist Valeri Skoroded very simply: the band was standing at a bus stop by a Soyuzpechat [Wikidata] booth and their eyes were caught by fancy postage stamps with the exotic words on them.

The group's music is mostly anti-governmental, pro-anarchist in its message, with the group identifying themselves with the Black Guards of the Russian Civil War.

Many of their songs are modernized versions of anarchist civil war songs. Some of their songs include "Commissar," "Chekist," "Freedom or Death," "Sabbath on the Bald Mountain", and so forth. Since the collapse of the Soviet Union, the group has continued to produce music, much of which is available on their website.

The band has performed over 100 shows and toured Europe, Israel, and all of the Russian Federation.
