Norman Lebrecht on shifting sound worlds
Get lucky. Get no closer to them than this.
Perhaps the idea is that they sing so badly that people welcome a cosh on the back of the head.
I thought it was Vincent Gardenia (or was it Abe Foxman?) conducting the ‘men in tights’. Wonder if this would have made Mel Brooks proud?
Perhaps this is a new public relations effort to somehow deliver a message that they are actually just humorous and fun-loving officials, in spite of everything… in which case I am *really* looking forward to the FSB’s forthcoming music video!
How retro, sounds like 70′s disco.
