SEX, PUNK, NEOFASCISM AND JULIO IGLESIAS. THE 1980s WESTERN MUSICIANS BANNED IN THE USSR Richard Dinnen

Music is a powerful force for unity. Its an international language that crosses borders. And its hard to be enemies with people who make you sing and dance. Music can undermine political regimes, which is why they sometimes prevent you hearing the stuff that might make you think theres a better way to live.

In early 1985, the Komsomol, the youth wing of the Soviet Communist Party, drew up a list of Western musical acts not to be played on the radio, or in clubs and discos. They were ideologically harmful although in most cases the list didnt specify how or why.

Scroll down for the Spotify of acts banned for sex, punk, neofascism and more

Komsomol list of acts banned in USSR1985 black list in original Russian

The list cites many reasons these 38 acts were not to be played, including violence, eroticism, punk, mysticism and religious obscurantism. Its probably lost something in the translation, and picked up some spelling errors along the way. But it reveals a deeper knowledge of Western music than might have been expected in the 1985 Soviet Union.

The blacklist had a catchy title the approximate list of foreign musical groups and artists whose repertoires contain ideologically harmful compositions. Van Halen, Pink Floyd, Black Sabbath, Talking Heads and Julio Iglesias are on it, with Madness, B-52s, Alice Cooper, The Village People, Donna Summer, Tina Turner, AC/DC and a Swiss band that sounds just like them called Krokus.

Its sinister and hilarious all at once, a reminder of just how hot the Cold War became in the mid 80s, and how daggy political folks can seem when they have to deal with the youth.

Fresh seafood "IndyWatch Feed Seq"

Hi all, coming up from Brisbane next weekend with my family. Just wondering if there are any tips in buying fresh seafood? For example, local fisherman who set up a store mid morning or similar trawlers?

Thanks!

Religious leaders say no Adani "IndyWatch Feed Enviro.au"

Contributed from Queensland

More than 50 religious leaders have banded together to urge Adani to abandon its Queensland coal project and invest in renewable energy instead.

The group includes Christian ministers, rabbis, nuns, ordained Buddhists and imams from across Australia. They have put their names to a letter that has been delivered to Adanis headquarters in Townsville.

Signatories include Muslims Australia President Dr Rateb Jneid, Anglican Dean of Brisbane Dr Peter Catt and Rabbi Jonathan Keren-Black.

Adanis $16.5 billion coal mining and rail project has generated widespread opposition, because of its contribution to carbon emissions, destruction of Aboriginal land and farming, impact on the water supply, and the significant threat it poses to the Great Barrier reef.

Regardless of all this, the Australian government has Given Adani the go ahead.

Protecting our common home and all those who live here is an essential part of each of our faiths,said the letter to company chairman Gautam Adani.

The leaders oppose all new coal mining in the Galilee Basin, with fears it could impact on water supplies, climate change and the Great Barrier Reef.

Adani has argued the $16.5 billion Carmichael mine would be a boon for jobs in struggling areas of regional Queensland. This is hotly disputed by opponents, who argue that it will damge other parts of the economy and that the number of promised jobs is greatly exaggerated, because this is a capital intensive industry.

The religious leaders said they also supported local jobs and has called for an increased investment in renewable energy like solar, saying Coal communities need serious investment to make the transition from the dirty energy of the past to the clean energy of the future.

Great Barrier Reef at unprecedented risk of collapse after major bleaching event "IndyWatch Feed Enviro.au"

The record-breaking marine heatwave in 2016 across the Great Barrier Reef has left much of the coral ecosystem at an unprecedented risk of collapse, research shows.

A new study published in Nature finds that the surge in sea temperatures during the 2016 bleaching event led to an immediate and long-lasting die-off of coral.

This, in turn, led to vast swathes of the reef being transformed into highly altered, degraded systems, which are now vulnerable to total ecological collapse, the authors conclude.

The large-scale loss of coral is a harbinger of further radical shifts in the condition and dynamics of all ecosystems, they add, if global action on climate change fails to limit warming to 1.5-2C above the pre-industrial baseline.

Turning white

The Great Barrier Reef is the worlds largest coral reef, stretching 2,300km from Papua New Guinea to the coast of Queensland, Australia. Over the past two decades, the Great Barrier Reef has seen four mass bleaching events, most recently in 2016 and 2017.

Coral bleaching is primarily caused by prolonged exposure to high sea temperatures. Under continued heat stress, the corals expel the tiny colourful algae living in their tissues known as zooxanthellae leaving behind a stark white skeleton.

The algae provide the corals with energy through photosynthesis. Without them, the corals can slowly starve. Healthy corals can live from two to several hundred years.

The mass bleaching event of 2016, which took place in the summer months of February, March and April, was the most devastating on record, affecting 94% of reefs surveyed...
