A BlankTV Premiere Presentation:
SVETLANAS - "Tales From The Alpha Brigade"
The Svetlanas were a punk band active in 1977. Their real identity was revealed only in 2008 on a tabloid. This is their story.
In the seventies,the Svetlanas worked for KGB: the main police organization in the Soviet Union. They were spies,informers,fighting agents to whom was assigned the task of stealing the military secrets of the most powerful nations in the world. In 1977,during their last cover show in the United States, a flawed amplifier triggered a 3000V discharge: the four members of the band,hit by the violent electric shock,went into a coma. The hospitalization was immediate, such as the decision of KGB to steal their bodies and hibernate them, in order to preserve the secrecy of the mission. The Svetlanas were transported inside cryogenic rooms, on a merchant ship bound for URSS, but, during the navigation, the ship mysteriously sank in the ocean. Nobody knows what really happened to Olga, Kirill, Jurij and Stanislav for the following thirty years………until an english tabloid revealed, by a scoop, the real story of the band. After the fall of the Soviet Union and the disappearance of KGB,the Svetlanas decided to clean break with the past and created their new identities, trying to integrate themselves in the society with their new lifestyles. They moved to Milan, had some plastic surgery operations and attended some intensive italian language courses. At the moment the Svetlanas, with their new names of Angela, Sporte, Diste and Steve, have recreated the band, dedicating themselves full time to what before was just a cover.
“They could have changed their aspect and accent but I swear on God that their approach to music is still gross and strong like a Vodka shot” -Malcom McLaren
