about

Forget about the CIA, LBJ or the Cubans. Want to know who killed JFK? Zombies! Or so suggests the Karovas Milkshake.

The Karovas Milkshake are from Ekaterinburg, Russia, which was behind the the Iron Curtain in the Soviet Union in JFK's time. In October, 1959, Lee Harvey Oswald traveled to Moscow and defected to the Soviet Union. He had hoped to go to Moscow University but instead the Soviet government sent him to Minsk (in what is now Belarus) to work as a lathe operator. He lived comfortably by Soviet standards but he was under constant surveillance. Also, according to the Warren Report, he became bored with life in the Soviet Union. He wrote in his diary, "I am starting to reconsider my desire about staying. The work is drab, the money I get has nowhere to be spent. No nightclubs or bowling alleys, no places of recreation except the trade union dances. I have had enough." In March, 1961, he met Marina Prusakova and they married six weeks later. The following year, after they had their first child, Oswald applied to return to the U.S. with his family. All this happened in a very different political climate than what exists today. According to Albert Krupp of the Karovas Milkshake, "It's all history now. All we can do is to commemorate JFK with our music."
