The word on the blogosphere is that Lukashenko is starting up a Beastie Boys tribute band. Check it out:
Today before a packed press conference in Minsk, the President of Belarus, Aleksandr Lukashenko, announced that he would be stepping down from his post to devote his life to an even greater undertaking: over-50 Beastie Boys cover band, which he dubbed "Sabotage."
"I've been a huge fan of the Beasties for years," explained Lukashenko. "As you can see, I've been cultivating this look for some time now."
Lukashenko hopes the band will start touring in the near future, playing medium-level clubs and bars in Belarus, as well as the aging hipster circuit in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Auditions for Sabotage start Monday.
