This page, as well as the associated mailing lists, comprise an attempt
to further interconnect those who care about Russian rock in Israel. The
mailing list in its initial stage
(announced in private e-mails in the
beginning of Feb., 1998 (Shvat, 5758 :-) )) had 15 subscribers. At its height
about 5 years later it had over 300 subscribers. Now that mailing lists are no longer the vogue,
these pages serve the archives of the old postings.
Thank you, the subscribers,
for being the great community you were.
And, of course, thanks to all those who
write and perform the Russian rock music!
was the main discussion list. It was not moderated, which means
that any subscriber could send an email to it, and if the
email passed some automatic validity tests,
it was immediately be sent out to all the subscribers.
It was open to free
discussions, primary topic being the Russian rock music in Israel.
Sometimes we speak about rock music in general, sometimes about the
Russian rock music culture news which do not relate to anything in
Israel. Usually, it is no more than 3 messages a workday,
peak being 30 messages as of 16/Feb/1998 - such things happen
when there is a hot event going on or about to take place.
When such a flurry of messages happened for the first time back then,
we thought of establishing
-- the moderated version, that contains the announcements about
the upcoming events, or otherwise important cultural news
of interest to the Russian rock in Israel audience.
A slight problem with this list is that
some members of the main discussion list post announcements
to the main list only,
without sending a copy to the announcement list (e.g., if they
tell about a small in-apartment concert etc.).
Only if the moderator notices this message on time
and voluntary forwards it over, it can get
to the moderated one. Another problem is that even if you
post to the announcement list, your message still won't appear
in it until the moderator approves it.
The mailing list server automatically archives the messages posted to
The lists are archived with hypermail:

Organized a great non-profit concert
of Yuri Naumov
in Technion, Haifa. It was his announcement of his Yuri Naumov's corner
that gave birth to the mailing list. And it was this concert that
inspired a lot of other folks on the list to try their skills in
bringing here the bands they would like to see perform in Israel.
