Earlier today I put up a video clip of a Soviet beat group calling themselves 'The Secret'. In a comment to that post, reader 'R' pointed us to this performance of the Finnish group 'Leningrad Cowboys', partnered with the so-called 'Red Army Choir' (more formally titled the Alexandrov Ensemble). Here they are in 1993, performing Lynyrd Skynyrd's 'Sweet Home Alabama', segueing into the Motown classic 'Dancing In The Street'. The Russian and Finnish accents make it rather . . . different!
I thought the balalaikas were a nice touch - but that hairstyle! What's with the unicorn horn thingy? I've never seen that in Alabama . . .
