Leningrad Cowboys

Reading Le Fox’s post about Aki Kaurismäki reminded me of a film of his that I’ve been meaning to see for a very very long time, Leningrad Cowboys Go America. Various clips are available on YouTube, not least of the remarkable legacy of the film, the Leningrad Cowboys. If you don’t know of them, they’re a Finnish cover band. The following video will tell you the rest. And yes, that is the Red Army Choir.
