THE WINDOW // Kandlgasse 6, Vienna 1070

In every millennium, events arise that shake the very cultural and social fabric of civilization. The last important events to take place were in the year 1010 when Song Zhun of the Song Dynasty completed, after 39 years, an atlas of China, and Beowulf - the Old English epic poem set in Scandinavia - was (probably) written.

In Hungary in April 2010, a boy band and a girl doctor were born of a group of tenors in the Vienna Jewish Choir, a performance-pop-cabaret duo, and an almost full bottle of vodka.

Splice together four baby boys and one baby girl from the DNA of Klaus Nomi, all the members of Take That, Diamanda Galas, and Janelle Monae; send them to live with a respected Jewish family in Poland, until their disowned, move to London, and settle in Vienna; this may give you an idea of the sound and philosophy of the group: Electronic performance trash cabaret choir pop in porno(phonic) symphonic surround sound.

It’s stressful to be over forty and in a boy band, and because stress can lead to psychological and physical ailments, the band has its own traveling human hospital in Doctor Mora. Sometimes a little bit of pain can go a long way towards a happy and hurtful life.
 
Angelic tenor singing, punctuated by the wry beat of Doc’s poetry, entices and titillates the ear. Imagine a group that can actually play its own instruments and destroy its own cover without once appearing in a talent contest. That′s what this group is about.
