Lyapis Trubetskoy became the first top indie band in the Post-Soviet musical scene, which released their album in such form, absolutely for free. However, this act of musicians will hardly surprise all those persons, who watched the cultural and ideological evolution of the band during last five years.
\\\"The main goal of the modern and creative person is to rethink and remake the slogan DIY (do it yourself) according to the present realities, - the leader of the band Sergey Mikhalok considers. - And it concerns not only anarho-pank cultures, but also independent art in general... Corporations, media holdings, records-labels and other monsters of show business is a pernicious filter for any fresh ideas! The best way to fight against this \\\"nearmusical\\\" system - is to spread music through the Internet! Then it will get to the listener quickly and for free. If the listeners will like it - they will go to our concert, and if they won\\\'t - \\\"let\\\'s begin this game again\\\".
The album Manifest will also include a ska-punk cover-version of the Ramones classic song \\\"I Wanna Be Your Boyfriend\\\". Lyapis Trubetskoy recorded the first version of this cover in 2004, for Russian tribute to the Ramones \\\"Ramones Kidz\\\". This version was so successful, that the band desided to re-record it in the same style for their new studio album Manifest.
