" 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 taskof stealing the military secrets of the most powerful nations in theworld.
In 1977,during their last cover show in the United States, a flawedamplifier triggered a 3000V discharge: the four members of the band,hitby the violent electric shock,went into a coma.
The hospitalization was immediate, such as the decision of KGB to stealtheir bodies and hibernate them, in order to preserve the secrecy ofthe mission.
The Svetlanas were transported inside cryogenic rooms, on a merchantship bound for URSS, but, during the navigation, the ship mysteriouslysank in the ocean.
Nobody knows what really happened to Olga, Dimitri, Jurij and Ivan forthe following thirty years………until an english tabloid revealed, by ascoop, the real story of the band.
After the fall of the Soviet Union and the disappearance of KGB,theSvetlanas decided to clean break with the past and created their newidentities, trying to integrate themselves in the society with theirnew lifestyles. They moved to Milan, had some plastic surgeryoperations and attended some intensive italian language courses.
At the moment the Svetlanas, with their new names of Angela, Alex,Diste and Pedro, have recreated the band, dedicating themselves fulltime to what before was just a cover.
“They could have changed their aspect and accent but I swear on Godthat their approach to music is still gross and strong like a Vodkashot”
