Gogol Bordello - Gypsy Punks: Underdog World Strike (2005)

Gogol Bordello is a Gypsy punk band from New York City, although many of the members are immigrants from Eastern Europe. Much of their sound is inspired by Gypsy music, and the band incorporates minor-key accordion and fiddle mixed with cabaret and punk energy, dub, electric guitar and drums. In New York City they're known for their frenetic, hungry stage shows in the Lower East Side.

Gogol Bordello is led by their charismatic singer, Ukrainian immigrant Eugene Hütz (DJ Hütz), who plays the role of a translator in the movie version of Everything is Illuminated.

The band formed in 1996, when Hütz moved to New York City. Their first single was released in 1999, and several full-length albums have followed since then, as well as a European tour. According to the New York Times, "Gogol Bordello has become an underground phenomenon in New York with its brand of contrarian globalism. Their sound is raucous, sweaty, tuneful and recklessly vibrant, like the punk and Gypsy music that inspired them. Iggy Pop meets Kafka. A weird blend of the Dead Kennedys, Flogging Molly, and the Decemberists (only the instrumental sound can be related to the Decemberists.)
