I first heard this song В клубе модном (V klube modnom translates to “In A Fashionable Club) when I was in Sweden in 2004. A friend had just visited Leningrad and brought the CD back. I have no idea what the lyrics say, but I’m been assured that it’s mostly filth. Filth or not, I can’t get past the brilliantly loose guitar backed by the oompa oompa of the brass.

I refer to it as polka punk and I love it.
