Flexi discs & sound postcards

The flexis are thin and flexible sheets of plastic cut with the grooves of a record. The recording quality is low. The exact info on Russian six inch flexis is hard or impossible to find. The self-made covers, colours and shapes of the plastic sheets may vary. There are at least four different sets of Russian Hanoi Rocks flexis. In this context, they are designated as follows:
- Budkon flexis
- Shaped/Sing soloist flexis
- EM/Variety sounds flexis
- Three mystery flexis = ?

"Budkon" flexis were made in the late 80's/early 90's. The Self-made covers and the colours of the plastic may vary.
