have any of you others heard of this formerly underground genre of Russian Shansons criminal and hardship music.

I mostly listen to metal, but a long while ago i heard a few of these songs (mostly by Krug) and got hooked on it. here's some samples.

this is another form of shansons, but it's not to my tastes, but it shows you how varied the genre is.

I hear Krug often referred to an old 1920s NKVD book of compiled russian slang words for his lyrics.
