"The Leningrad Cowboys music has proven to have an incredible hypnotizing effect on the listeners. The male listeners are divided into two groups - those who have listened over 10 times to the song in question and have experienced The Incredible Leningrad Cowboys Show have an immediate need for more Vodka. Those who have not baptised themselves yet in the invigorating Cowboys lifestyle have an immediate need for more Beer. The female listeners have an even more amazing out-of-this-world-experience: They have an immediate need to go cruising with their tractors - but only with those wearing and living the Cowboy lifestyle. Thus Leningrad Cowboys music is extremely good for private parties, but with larger gatherings one should be extremely careful not to play the music too early in the evening. Several so-called music professionals and critics have tried to analyse the music - but have always failed miserably!
Originally created as a label under which another Finnish band, the Sleepy Sleepers, could release their English songs and concert extravaganzas, the joke acquired a life on its own. Since its foundation in the late 1980s, the group has appeared in three films by Aki Kaurismäki (Leningrad Cowboys Go America, Leningrad Cowboys Meet Moses and Total Balalaika Show) and also enjoys some success worldwide. Currently, the band has eleven Cowboys and two Leningrad Ladies. The songs, always somewhat influenced by polka and progressive rock, have themes such as vodka, tractors, rockets and Genghis Khan, not to mention folkloric Russian songs, rock and roll ballads and covers from bands as diverse as The Beatles, Led Zeppelin and Lynyrd Skynyrd, all with lots of humour.
