"But seriously/Shit Happens" Leningrad Cowboys Go America is a strange and fun little movie. I just love how everyone related to the cowboys has a pompadour, even the dog, Abe Lincoln's photo, and the village idiot Igor's mini pompadour. And the coffin full of beer! And Jim Jarmusch as the car salesman! This is so much fun. I need to see more Aki Kaurismaku.
Rock and Roll is Dead. It died 1989, I think it was in Leningrad. It was born again 1994 (in the spirit of the Frozen Bass Player) , when Rock and Roll met Moses in Mexico. It finally met its end in 1998 when it ventured into L.A. Without a Map. Rock and Roll is rumored too have originated in Finland with 11 Cowboys and two Leningrad Ladies.
