Laibach – Life is Life

Slovenian band Laibach have sung some interesting covers in their time.  In 1988 they re-recorded The Beatles’ album ‘Let it Be’ and generated seven different versions of ‘Sympathy for the Devil’ by The Rolling Stones.  Leg of Lamb’s personal favourite is their stern rendition of ‘Life is Life’ (above) originally a feel-good anthem by Austrian rockers Opus.

Laibach also represent the musical wing of Neue Slowenische Kunst (NSK), an art movement created in 1984 of which they were founding members.  Later this month a selection of Laibach’s paintings, prints, posters, record covers, photographs, stage designs and videos created in the first decade of their career will be the subject of an exhibition at the International Centre of Graphic Arts in Slovenia.
