Some strange news has leaked from the Kremlin that an ABBA tribute band called BJORN AGAIN which was called at the request of Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin to perform for him and a small audience of Kremlin dignitaries on January 22. This band which has both the look and sound of the original ABBA group, was put under heavy military guard when they arrived in Russia before their secret Kremlin show.
But strangely, a Kremlin spokesman for Prime Minister Putin is denying that Putin was in the audience for the ABBA tribute show, although he was clearly visible to members of this group in the private small audience of Kremlin dignitaries.
Apparently, Putin might be attempting to keep his embarrassing love for the music of ABBA a state secret. The wall of secrecy surrounding this government only remains it seems, or else maybe Putin is embarrassed about the real lack of macho appeal from songs such as DANCING QUEEN.
Reportedly the leader of BJORN AGAIN, Rod Stephen, actually gave up a job in metallurgical research so that he could spend full time recreating the crappy pop music sound of ABBA. Good career move there, Rod.
