This Laibach concert film could be the weirdest thing to come out of North Korea
Laibach, the heavy industrial act from Slovenia (est. 1980), was weird to begin with. But when they announced they were going to play a couple of gigs in North Korea, that weirdness quotient went off the charts.
On August 19 and 20, 2015, the group performed at the Kim Won Gyun Musical Conservatory in Nampo-dong, Pyongyang. The shows were part of the 70th-anniversary celebrations of the 70th anniversary of the end of Japanese colonial rule in Korea.
That trip into the DPRK has been turned into a film entitled Liberation Day. This I gotta see.
