An album perfectly described by its title, this is a good-natured full-throated balkan-influenced knees-up. An unashamedly theatrical and brazenly vaudevillian entertainment conjuring up images of a debauched travelling show for your delectation and delight. If you can imagine Shane MacGowan getting it down with DeVotchka you won't be too wide of the mark.
Standout tracks include the infectious rock n' roll romp 'Always Out', 'No Bail Blues' 'Getting Hot Going Down' and, best of all, 'Stole My Dog' - a bitterly sardonic reflection on a failed romantic relationship.
You never lose the sense, though, that the whole shebang is basically an elaborate act, a carefully staged piece of theatre, rather than a life actually lived by its creators. But for all that, it's impressively choreographed and enormously enjoyable.
