    The Bolsheviks are re-forming for an anniversary tour, featuring all your auld favourites like 'war communism', 'red terror' and 'new economic policy' - a greatest hits album, including the great Uncle Joe track 'dizzy (with success)' is scheduled for release in the coming weeks

    I understand the tracks have been remixed from the original tapes but without trotsky's backing vocals, to give what is supposed to be the authentic Bolshevik sound without any menshevik nonsense

    Supported by old hippies ,"Prince" Georgy Lvov and The Provisional Goverment , although i hear it is their farewell tour

    anyway, on the 17th July, it will be 99 years since the Czar was put out of his misery. I am sure there is some weak musical pun that can be made from the 99 link
