Gogol Bordello combines Balkan folk traditions with a theater of anarchy

"The third album is gonna have more New York influence," he predicts. "And I don't mean like the fuckin' Strokes or some bullshit like that. It's more like some nasty, ghetto-fuck music when you get into a Puerto Rican car service. Like if you take a Puerto Rican cab. They always play this nasty, crude dancehall shit. Then you get out of the cab and you go to Punjabi restaurant and hear bangra, which is Indian movie music, which is another kind of bordello music. So I think we're gonna be moving towards circumcision, wedding and baptizing in the same type of spirit with these ghetto-fuck musics of New York.

Think vampire lore, live birds, Go-Gogol girls and polka revved up to the breaking point, and you've got Gogol Bordello.

"I think that our music is generally exciting for anybody who likes crazy shit," Hütz concludes. "We play super music. If you really just want to sit down and think about a whole lot of stuff, you can do that to our music. If you want to swing from a chandelier and go completely nuts, you can do that. And if you fuckin' want to go home, you can do that, too. But most people prefer swinging from the chandelier."
