Eolika - Minikleitina

üks lugu viimasest saatest

see on üks plaat, mille ma leidsin eelmine aasta rock roadist, ühest üksildasest kastist. ma iga kord võtsin sealt ühe huvitavamalt näiva seitsmetollise kaasa. ma kujutan ette, et määravaks said selle plaadi puhul tõesti selle sama loo nimi ja bänd. Eolika on tuttavam nende 80ndate loomingu poolest, "Dreams of Riga" LP'l on väga head diskot, isegi sellist, mida tänapäeval võib cosmic disco'ks nimetada. aga Eolika on juba vana bänd, tegutsenud 60ndate lõpust, alustanud tõenäoliselt kohaliku biidi lainel, kuid teinud vajalikul määral poppi. youtubest palun otsige nende vanu videosid.
minikleidi teema tundus huvitav ka sellepoolest, et meil on ju olemas armastatud miniseeliku lugu. Vello Orumets laulmas. ma ei ole moeajaloolane ja ei tea, millal miniseelikud suurele isamaale jõudsid, kuid ajad olid vabamad ja neiud võisid... eee... näidata natuke rohkem. aga meil jäi asi ikkagi siivsa miniseeliku või minikleidi tasemele. äsja saksa sõprusblogis Berlin Beatet Bestes ilmus mitu lugu minikini'de teemadel. samal ajal meie laulikutega ka läänes lauldi väheldastest riietest, kuid seal oli juba jõutud bikinideni. kohati isegi nende puudumiseni. meie küll nii julgeks ei läinud.
mõtlemisainet kui palju. lingid ja videod allpool.

our friend blog Berlin Beatet Bestes posted few weeks back tracks with same theme - minikinis. praising bikinis or even nudeness was kind of understandable in 60s in Western Europe. those tracks made connection in my head with two tracks from nearer shores, from Baltic States. very popular track in Estonia was "Miniseelik" (Miniskirt). singing about girls with new crazy fashion. and here i have also 7" from Latvia by Eolika, from same time with song "Minikleitina", it should translate as minidress. as you can see that bikinis in soviet union in 60s were still too much, but we were given little relief with shorter skirts/dresses.
edit: Eolika is more known from their 80s albums, "Dreams of Riga" has some tasteful disco, you could call even cosmic disco today. turns out they had started in 1969 already. that track is taken from one of their earlier singles, it's best track on it. i have also another early 7" from 1970, it's a good one, but i have too noisy copy, one great beat pop, one cool psych pop and another nice mellow folkpop track.

Berlin Beatet Bestes (look for posts with bikini tags)

looks like Miniseelik is taken down from youtube :(

Great find, comarade! It must be a 1969's release - the same year they have started the first time it seems.

I just love that 'bez riska' on youtube - it's outstanding!

Is there any chance to get other tracks of the first formation of the band?

Thank you!

Now I don't have any other songs recorded to computer.
Yes, this record is from 1969, I have also another 7" from 1970, but too noisy copy, with crackles.

Okay. If once you will do another rip of Eolika - I will be glad to download it in any sound quality.

Thank you, Martin, for pretty tracks.

The quality is acceptable. I even love that vinyl noise :)
