5.0 out of 5 stars The Roots of Gypsy Punk, 19 May 2006
This review is from: Voi-La Intruder (Audio CD)
Most of you will be looking at this album because you've got hold of the incomparable Gypsy Punks - Underdog World Strike and thought "I NEEEED more of this band NOW!". Voi-La Intruder dates from 2002, and is a bit like going back in time, not least because that's exactly what you're doing.

It's more folky, more mainstream, more quiet, and a bit more of a "concept album in two movements" than Gypsy Punks - but only in the context of that album being the wildest maelstrom of heavenly mash ever to emerge from the Ukrainian diaspora - or indeed anywhere in the world - in the last 15 years.

There's some stunning individual tracks - "Greencard Husband" and the closing 7 minutes plus of "Against the Nature" amongst them. But my favourite is a duet with Sally Norvell entitled "God-like" which moves effortlessly from its hymnish opening verse into a self-flagellating abusefest that puts the exchange of Kirsty & Shane in their classic Fairytale into the shade. Combine that with the original recording of "Start Wearing Purple" (reminiscent of hearing London Calling on the Vanilla Tapes) and you have an album that won't disappoint.

Those crazy Ukranians have done it again. Not quite sure where this falls in the Gogol timeline but it's not as manic as there other stuff but just as good in a 'subtle' way. When I say subtle it's subtle like a kick in the goolies, whereas the other albums are a pick axe in the face 'subtle' I loved it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Get your smile back here, 16 Nov 2010

Not sure what to say, just if you ever feel down then these guys'll put a smile on your face and a spring in your step.

They are permanently stored on my phone, so if ever I'm out and feeling like I need a lift I can just stick this album or any of Gogol Bordello's albums on and within a song or two I'll be feeling a whole lot better.
