Description by OLDIES.com:

In the late eighties and early nineties, Aki Kaurismaki, the master of the deadpan, fashioned a waggish fish-out-of-water tale about a U.S. tour by 'the worst rock-and-roll band in the world.' Leningrad Cowboys Go America's posse of fur-coated, outrageously pompadoured hipsters struck such a chord with international audiences that the fictional band became a genuine attraction, touring the world. Later, Kaurismaki created a sequel, Leningrad Cowboys Meet Moses, and filmed a gigantic stadium show the band put on in Helsinki for the rollicking documentary Total Balalaika Show. The Eclipse series presents these crackpot musical and comic odysseys, along with five Leningrad Cowboys music videos directed by Kaurismaki.

I just descovered these guys while poking around on HuluPlus. Even though they were just to be a goof on the public, they got wildly famous.
Like me, many people are just finding them after they have had a fabulous run , and closed up shop, they are still outragiously cool. I was stunnedst sight of them. I was speechless. I did not know what I was looking at!. They sounded great, they were reeking with showmanship, and whet I saw had no name. Finally after I picked my jaw up grom my lap, I had to laugh like I haven't laughed in years. This was real and it was so cool. Who are they? I didn't even think to ask untill an hour or so ater they were over.
The leningrad Cowbys ? OK with me. I needed the DVD then and there. I can not for get the All Balalaika Band with the Red Army Choir and ansamble. They were nothing less than spectacular!
