Army of Lovers? At least I think I recognize that "bearded" guy who got brain surgery in another 80s video.

I first heard "Crucified" at an after-hours semi-underground no-alcohol mixed gay-straight club in Oklahoma City in fall of 1993. When I saw the video a few weeks later on the club's projection screen, I absolutely loved it - the ridiculous French-Revolution Liberace-esque Eurotrash drag-queen over-the-top blasphemy of it all. For 1993, in the United States, in was a pretty amazing thing to see that level of sheer campy gayness mixed with gleeful religious satire. It was, in its way, genius.

Once I started downloading songs online, I gave other Army of Lovers songs a try and loved a few of them, too. They might be the most effeminate and fabulous music act ever, and I'm including RuPaul, Sylvester, Dana International, and the Backstreet Boys.

I love how their major fan base was in the formerly communist eastern European countries. I guess they needed some silly, decadent flashiness in their lives. I know I did.

Haha wow.

I see the long haired guy around town from time to time... Actually I see him every time I go to a gay club, but that's not very often :P

Is he ageing gracefully or is he all plastic-surgery-thick-makeup-fake-tan-bad-weave-inappropriately-skimpy-outfits?

I think Jean Pierre is some mixture of French, Jewish, and North African-Arab.

And I think they might be making fun of anti-semitism as much as they make fun of Jews, although they could be lumping all ancient, overly accessorized religions into one heap of fabulous silly irony.
