I can not wait until they put out more music! If you can't stand the noise, then that's all the more reason I love this music. Real punk was always anti elitist, anti establishment and total freedom. I think I have very eclectic tastes in music, but some times when I try to explain what what really excites me, I start blubbering about industrial accidents, explosions, the sound of reality self destructing, with a good beat, of course. The energy transcends the mere technical knowledge of a recording it's really good music, it will melt down your expensive mixing board! The most expensive sound system can only give a pale, limp and insipid imitation of this reality. Here is the translation of the lyrics of Pussy Riots, 2012 single, released after their arrest and imprisonment:
Putin ignites the fires of revolution"

This State may be stronger than the time in jail. 
The more arrests it makes, the happier it is. 
Every arrest is carried out with love for the sexist 
The one who botoxed his cheeks and pumped his chest and abs. 
But you can't nail us in a coffin. 
We throw off the yoke of former KGB! 

Putin is lighting up the fires of revolution 
He's bored and scared of sharing his silence with the people 
With every execution: the stench of rotten ash 
With every long prison sentence: a wet dream 

The country is taking the streets with no fear 
The country is going to bid farewell to the regime 
The country is going like a feminist wedge 
And Putin is going to say goodbye like a sheep 

Arrest the whole city for May 6th 
Seven years in prison are not enough, give us 18! 
Forbid us to scream, walk and curse! 
And go and marry Father Lukashenko
