After Hours

3 Mustaphas 3: TV Special

Wow, this is something else. It's a video of sorts that the 3 Mustaphas did in 1988. The first tune sounds like it's in Bulgarian, but it isn't as far as I can tell. The next sounds like it might be in Serbo-Croatian. It also isn't. And so on. Since I don't have an intimate knowledge of all Balkan languages, I can't totally say that everything is fake, but it probably is. I mean, these guys are British. Everyone knows that the British are even more inept than Americans when it comes to foreign languages. Whereas each American on average knows a tiny bit of Spanish, someone from England knows only English. OK, so they may claim to know a little bit of French. This is always a lie. Anyhow, I recommend that you watch all of this from start to finish. It is brilliant. The newscasts are particularly clever. When I was in Bulgaria in 1986, this is exactly how the news went.

Priceless (or maybe better); especially the credit at the end for the guy who did the lighting.
