PROTESTERS FACE SECOND NIGHT IN POLICE CUSTODY

Hundreds were detained in downtown St. Petersburg on Monday as the authorities clamped down on protests against violations during Vladimir Putins presidential election campaign and the March 4 voting. Most of those detained looked likely to spend another night in custody as this paper went to press.

Coupled with more than 200 arrests at an authorized protest in Moscow the same night, some observers say the crackdown shows that the Kremlin has chosen to stop any pretence of liberalism now that its campaign to return Putin to the presidency has been successful.

City Hall did not respond to applications to authorize post-election rallies on St. Isaacs Square, where the citys Election Committee is located, despite a law that requires the authorities to contact the applicant within three days if they have any objections.

CULTURE

ETERNAL THEME

Bad Influence call themselves a funeral band: They first reformed to perform at a memorial concert for Eduard Nesterenko, their former guitarist and founder of the band Petlya Nesterova, held at Griboyedov bunker club in December 2008, 40 days after Nesterenkos death.

Since then they have been asked to perform at memorial concerts for Svinya, the nickname of Andrei Panov, the godfather of Leningrad punk rock who died 1998, and Alex Ogoltely (Alexander Strogachyov), who led the punk band Narodnoye Opolcheniye until his death in 2005.

Bad Influence (Durnoye Vliyaniye in Russian) formed in 1988 under the influence of British post-punk bands such as Bauhaus and Joy Division, at the height of Gorbachevs perestroika and the Soviet rock explosion.

Nesterenko, who started out with the local new wave band Kofe, was a friend and played guitar with Bad Influence in 1989.

In 1991 we split; its actually amazing we have friends who were born in 1992. You ask her, When were you born? and she says, in 1992. Cool, we hadnt been playing for a year by then, says drummer and cofounder Igor Mosin.
