How about some Russian synthpop from 1984? This is the band Forum and their song Let’s Call Each Other. It’s good to know while our governments each had hundreds of nukes aimed at each other most of us were doing far more important things such as synthing out.

When I was a teenager I lived in an alternate world obsessed with music. The clothes I wore and the music was a large part of who I was. Sometimes youth and music can take humans beyond what is normally accepted as rational behavior. Apparently two Russian goths named Maxim Golovatskikh and Yury Mozhnov killed a 16 year old girl and fed her to a lodger. Here’s the story…
“Two Russian men, goths as you can see above, are accused of chopping up a 16-year-old girl and serving her with potatoes to a lodger. The trial has now been postponed after the juror had to be excused while examining photographs of student Karina Barduchian after her death. Maxim Golovatskikh and his friend florist Yury Mozhnov, both 20, drowned 16-year-old Karina Barduchian in a bath, then carved up her body and served her meat with potatoes to a lodger. The lodger, Ekaterina Zinovyeva, told the court in St Petersburg they had a party with their Goth friends on the night of the murder in January, 2009. Karina, who was in love with Golovatskikh, stayed the night, she said. ” – side-line.com
