Gogol Bordello - Gypsy Punks Underdog World Strike
It's nearly impossible to believe the amount of energy these guys pour into their live shows, and it comes across in their albums as well. Gypsy punk sounds like such an odd combination, but it's infectious and will keep you moving well past wehn you thought you should drop.
So this band calls itself a "gypsy punk" band. And upon listening, you'll find that is the perfect definition. Gogol Bordello is unlike anything you've ever heard, unless you frequently listen to music that incorporates accordion and violin with punk music. Or if you've seen the movie "Everything is Illuminated," you've seen the lead singer, who's from the Ukraine, play the hilarious character Alex. The band also did the soundtrack for that movie.
for those of us with a gypsy soul...
