In 1986, Billy Bragg came to USSR to play some shows in Leningrad. During the conversations with some local rockers he tried to convince them to play music for the working class. It took thirty years — very devastating term for Russian working class — for Russian music to get an album with that name. Arkadiy Kots Band ("the best activist cand in the country" - according to Novaya Gazeta) is ready to present the Music For The Working Class (2016) this month. Not to be missed!

The history of class pride, songs of labor protests, rallies and strikes recorded in friendly contact with the labor movement and with the support of the Confederation of Labour of Russia.
