At  one  level,  Sergei  Zhuk  tells  the  story  suggested  by  the  title—that  of  the arrival of rock music in the Ukrainian city of Dniepropetrovsk, which was closed to foreigners from 1959 onward. Zhuk repeatedly asserts that, because the city was offlimits  to  Westerners  (many  of  whom,  in  Zhuk’s  telling,  came  to  the  Soviet  Union bearing  rock  music),  the  city’s  rock  fans  had  only  limited  access  to  rock  records. Especially in the early years, they or their black market providers travelled to other cities, above all L’viv (a cultural emporium because of the number of visiting Poles), to obtain stock.
