2013 reissue. Mirumir presents a reissue of Leningrad conceptual art rock band AVIA's 2009 compilation Zhizn I Tvorchestvo Kompozitora Zudova. The band formed in 1986 and rose to prominence with their parodic anti-establishment performances. Their name was a protest in itself, with "A" standing for "anti" and "VIA" a well-known acronym for "vocal-instrumental ensembles" (a genre also known as "estrada"), previously the only form of state-sanctioned popular music. Zhizn I Tvorchestvo Kompozitora Zudova includes AVIA's 1986 debut cassette, Iz Zhizni Komozitora Zudova, live recordings from 1987, and other rarities.
