Various Artists Future Sound of Russia
- Words: Cameron Macdonald
- Label: AeroCCCP
An art history teacher once told my class that modern art that’s shown in Calcutta is no different from what’s exhibited in San Francisco. The 18 artists from Moscow and St. Petersburg here reminded me of that glum view of a globalized culture, but hell, the Future is a hoot. The corn is ripe here: Punk TV is a lithograph of emo-schlocksmen My Chemical Romance; Cheese People’s “I’ll Be with You” uses tacky heavy-metal guitars to betray an otherwise fine, Italo-disco groove; Yogo! Yogo!’s, ahem, “I’m Not Gay” is a stolen Justice b-side. Turns out junk food knows no geographical borders.
