Laibach                 We Will Go to Mount Paektu     Party Songs – EP

A pop music song from North Korea which Slovenian Avant-garde band were due to in the country when they became the first western rock musicians to play there. “We Will Go to Mount Paektu” is in praise of the country’s leader, Kim Jong-un. But the censors said “No” because the song had been altered – Maybe I’ll compare and contrast in a later programme – sounds like Christmas special stuff

The other main part of their performance was playing The Sound of Music which they went on to release as an album last year.
