On the plus side...
There's no need for conspiracies, should something happen...

I wouldn't say this is a sign of change at all. It was all set up by the Germans, and no one in Afghanistan has even seen or heard any of it. If they did see the video, they'd probably be outraged. I'm sure social change probably will come for them, but it will surely take longer than a few years.

So, the infrastructure has crumbled but Kabul has a nice Fender Jazz bass for this woman to play?

I saw part of a TV report, a few weeks back, about traditional Afghani musicians that fled to Pakistan. Music was used to rally the rebels against the Soviet attack, but then as the Taliban grew in power, they used it to crack down on any other Afghan groups. Sufis were targeted, as music is a main part of their religious practice. Musicians targeted, instruments destroyed. There was this one guy, on fleeing to Pakistan, dismantled his lute-like instrument, that had been in his family for generations. It was discovered and destroyed, but he made it over the boarder and a sort of satelite culture exists. They are returning with caution. This one famous female singer, she apparently danced in a film, still has had attempts on her life. But the Tape/CD sellers were hopping.

So I guess there is no way to see if the lead singer is a total babe. Unless you marry her, then find out she is in need of a dermatologist. 8P

You know, I can barely play the bass wearing shorts, a tank top, and with two free hands. How the hell does this woman play it covered from head to toe, with her hands swaddled in cloth?!!

Germany will create the Fourth Reich using women dressed as ghosts. It's all falling into place now.

Look at it this way.
Are they worse than Britney?

Yes! Maybe not musically, but Britney has other qualities.
