I think I need to go visit Ogrish.com and look at a few hostage decapitation videos in order to get the image of the creepy tra-la-la guy out of my brain.

That guy is indescribably popular here in Finland. Although, we have a rammstein'esque metal band consisting of two gimps.

The thing that strikes me, though, the majority of people who like GŁnther have no idea what the word "camp" means.

God bless Europe (especially Scandinavia) for their never-ending supply of cheesy dance music! It's like the '70s never ended for them, and ABBA will forever be together...

I get to hear this kind of thing first-hand when CBC Radio broadcasts half an hour of Radio Sweden every night in the wee small hours. Stuff like this and "Trendy Discotheque" by Pay TV - bubblegummy, synth-laden ultra-pop, with a wink and a nudge to the listener to let them know it's all a big self-parody.

More on Gunther can be heard on "Sounds Nordic" at:
