The Final Countdown

So we're in Vientiane and someone tells us there's live music around the corner. We head there thinking, cool. And when we get inside and are flanked on all fronts by some seriously 80s decor and see a band comprised of two singers (one taking a time out), 5 guitarists (no less), a bassist and a keyboard player all backed by a drummer who was kept inexplicably behind a pentagonal perspex wall. They all look sombrely towards the floor until the bass line kicks in and belt into what you wouldn't believe unless I'd procured video evidence, the Final Countdown. The music was absolutely roaring but I'd swear you could hear me laughing above it. Brilliant.
