Number two artist on the top ten board in the record shop scene of the 1971 classic A Clockwork Orange. His song is titled "Really Play."

Pretty teenybopper Marty (Barbara Scott) asks her pretty teenybopper friend Sonietta (Gillian Hills), "Who you gettin' bratty? Goggly Gogol? Johnny Zhivago? The Heaven Seventeen?" just before Alex (Malcolm McDowell) sweet talks them back to his place for sex.

This name really emphasizes the Russian influence on teen culture in the novel and film; Doctor Zhivago was a popular 1965 film (based on a 1957 novel) about a Russian doctor through World War I and the Russian Revolution of 1917.

Anthony Burgess' original novel had even more bands in it.
