Performer Notes
  • On SUPER TARANTA!, its second full-length outing for the Side One Dummy label, the gypsy-punk ensemble Gogol Bordello offers up another raucous set of eclectic songs rooted in Eastern European folk music. Powered by the boundless enthusiasm of Ukrainian-born vocalist/guitarist/percussionist Eugene Hutz, the New York City-based band careens through upbeat numbers that boast leaping violin lines and swooping accordion playing, capturing the rabble-rousing spirit of early Pogues, but fueled not by Irish whiskey but by Russian vodka. While most of the tunes on SUPER TARANTA! are fast and festive (see the giddy "Wonderlust King"), Hutz and his group occasionally slow things down to a hung-over crawl (particularly on the woozy "Alcohol"), resulting in a dynamic and unabashedly fun album.
