This magazine was published in Rostov-on-Don, the largest city in southern Russia, from 1988 to 1995 (with No 11 being the final issue, printed in Greece).
These issues feature articles covering events and festivals, profiles of Rostov rock bands, interviews with notable figures such as Andrei Panov (the founder of the Avtomaticheskie udovletvoriteli band, the first punk band in the USSR), Boris Grebenshchikov (co-founder of Aquarium), and Kirill Miller (artist-painter), among others. The magazine also includes an open letter to Soviet leaders about rock music by Svyatoslav Zadery, the founder of the Alisa band, as well as verses by poet and punk singer Yanka Dyagileva (who tragically committed suicide at the age of 24) and by Mike Naumenko, leader of the band Zoopark (who passed away in August 1991). Additionally, there are translated articles from Rolling Stone magazine, excerpts from the David Bowie Archive by Chris Charlesworth, and translated lyrics from Metallica.
