Biography

1) Pussy Riot is a Russian feminist punk-rock collective that stages politically provocative impromptu performances in Moscow, on subjects such as the status of women in Russia, and, most recently, against the election campaign of Prime Minister Vladimir Putin for President of Russia.

2) Pussy Riot is an Italian grunge band from Bologna inspired by the movement. Formed in 2004 by Katerina (guitar, vocals), Anastasia (bass), and Luisa (drums).The band recorded its first official demo “ThisTroy” on September 2006. https://myspace.com/pussyriot

1) In March 2012, three women from the band were arrested and charged with hooliganism; their trial began in late July. The women have attracted considerable sympathy both within Russia and internationally, due to allegations of harsh treatment while they have been in custody, and the threat of a possible seven year jail sentence. The trial has been compared by some foreign observers to a show trial.

Performances and influencesTheir usual costume is brightly-colored dresses and tights, even in bitterly cold weather, with their faces masked by balaclavas, both while performing and giving interviews, for which they always use pseudonyms. The collective is made up of about 10 performers, and about 15 people who handle the technical work of shooting and editing their videos, which are posted to the Internet.[1][2] The group cites punk rock and Oi! bands Angelic Upstarts, Cockney Rejects, Sham 69, Era and The 4-Skins as their most important musical inspiration.[3][4]

    If a punk-rock band made a "performance" in any church somewhere in the South or Mid-West USA, they would not only have been imprisoned, but before that they would had been completely lynched by the locals. So much about the equity of rights and about justice... It was an offense and such a behavior deserves punishment. And I am not Putin´s supporter at all !!!
