Biography

Formed in 1928, The Red Army Choir is a performing ensemble that served as the official army choir of the former Soviet Union’s Red Army. The choir consists of a male choir, an orchestra, and a dance ensemble. The songs they perform range from Russian folk tunes to Church hymns, operatic arias and popular music. During World War II, the choir gave over 1500 performances at both Soviet fronts, entertaining troops about to go to into battle, at gun emplacements, airfields, and in hospitals.

Since the collapse of the Soviet Union, the Red Army Choir has continued performing, entertaining audiences both inside and outside Russia. In 1993, the Red Army Choir became an item of pop culture by performing together with the Finnish cult band Leningrad Cowboys both in Helsinki, where they performed on the Senate Square in front of 70,000 ecstatic listeners, and in Berlin.

    Pulling on the boots and tightening up the laces Shaving their heads and ... their faces There you have a skinhead, looking for a fight Skinhead, skinhead, running through the night Skinhead, skinhead, running through the night Making lots of trouble, starting lots of fights Skinhead, skinhead, getting really pissed Skinhead, skinhead, tattoed on the wrist! Hanging in the lane way, waiting for the scum Especially yellow faces, kick their fucking bum When they plee for mercy, we will show none Skinhead, skinhead, 'til the job is done Skinhead, skinhead, putting on the boot Looking for a streetfight, looking for a row Skinhead, skinhead, running through the fights Skinhead, skinhead, stompin' on your face! When the coppers see us, at first they pull the gun But when they see us come towards, then they start to run When we wear our badges it make us feel proud Skinhead, skinhead, shout it out loud! Skinhead, skinhead, skinhead, skinhead...
