So while my band was setting up for a gig, the club we were in was playing this fantastic fusion over the PA of Eastern European folk and punk rock, about which I inquired further of the manager (did that make sense? I don't know). He told me about Gogol Bordello, the gypsy punk band from the Ukraine, based in New York, with an American drummer.

Anyway, I found a copy of Multi Kontra Culti vs. Irony, and have fallen absolutely in love with it.

First of all, I highly recommend it to anyone looking for something with a sound that's a bit outside the box.

Secondly, can anyone recommend any other albums or bands that have similar styles to Gogol Bordello?

Thanks muchly.
Peace, peace, and that's my piece.
