(p.117) Chapter 6 Generating New Waves
Living in The Merry Ghetto

Trever Hagen

Oxford University Press

This chapter engages the broader parallel non-official culture that emerged in Czechoslovak late socialism and moves the timeline forward to address some of the characteristics of the Merry Ghetto, and more generally non-official musicking, in the 1980s. Cases of musicking during the 1980s problematize “generation” by exposing it not necessarily in terms of only age gap but also in how new arenas of being and thinking were generated from cultural resources that were crafted in the 1970s. I explore the mechanisms of “generation” through convergence zones between non-official cultural ecologies by discussing a further core group of musicians and musicking practices during 1970s Czechoslovakia, the Alternatives.

Keywords:   second generation, perestroika, gray-zone, tape-trading, forbidden
