Soviet Pop (苏维埃流行) is a project from 2/3rds of the celebrated Beijing punk band Carsick Cars
Soviet Pop was founded in 2009, Beijing, mainly active in the rehearsal room and the sound created by a member of. Generally translated as “Soviet pop”, but the members felt “Soviet Pop ” is more appropriate, and above all, sounds a decent, feeling very high. Interest in their music mainly emitted by the oscillator to any sound, no oscillator they can not play. Practices, the two members are biased primary, non-technical way of playing. Lyrics, the members mainly from the various types of non-fiction books tend to get inspired, and add a portion of the impact of falsificationism, to express the full meaning of some of the personal point of view is not boring. In short, a duet based on sound oscillator used to describe their music is their best description. Sometimes they also wrote some very long songs. Many well-known Soviet Pop idol groups are a model, such as Kluster, Morton Subotnick, Karlheinz Stockhausen, Pierre Schaeffer and his ilk. - taken from Rose Mansion Analog

In June 2010, their record Dialogue was released as tape record on Rose Mansion Analog after being released on March 22nd on Bandcamp.
On August 24th, 2010, Lu Xin Pei, Simon Frank, and Soviet Pop performed at the D-22 during a Zoomin Night. According to Pangbianr: Third was Soviet Pop. I’ve seen this band a few times before and they never quite grabbed me, but their set the other night actually blew me away. They ramped up the technical aspect of their performance that I’ve noticed before and delved into more abstract, stranger territories than the previous times I’ve seen them. Li Qing held down the synth while Li Wei Si sat indian-style behind a wall of inputs that to my untrained eye looked like a telephone operator’s switchboard.
On July 23rd, 2011, they performed at a pangbianr night at the Raying Template. According to Beijing Gig Guide: Soviet Pop was a little too noisy for my taste, so I largely ignored their set for another 5RMB can of Yanjing.
