I stumbled upon Eugene Hutz from Gogol Bordello a couple of years back while watching the Madonna written and directed movie Filth and Wisdom on a satellite channel in the middle east. Eugene plays the lead role in a bizarre comedy about 3 flat mates (Eugene and two girls) set in London and also starring Richard E Grant. I watched it out of curiosity to see what Madonna could do. I loved it. Of course, because it was directed by Madonna, the general reaction was to slam the movie. I immediately scanned the Amazon sites to look for a DVD copy of Filth and Wisdom, which at the time I could only get from Amazon Canada. After some research into Eugene Hutz I found out about Gogol Bordello and purchased all their CD's from Amazon UK. I tried the massive HMV music store England but they said, "who ?". I next purchased Eugen's first feature film from 2005, Everything is Illuminated, written and directed by Liev Schreiber, in which Eugene stars with Elijah Wood. And of course the excellent 2006 documentary The Pied Piper of Hutzovina, in which Eugene returns to Ukraine to rediscover his roots in gypsy music. Of course all the DVD were supplied by Amazon.

After all this exposure to Eugene and Gogol Bordello, I was longing to see them live, but I do not think they will be performing live very soon in Kuwait !! So when this CD with the DVD's of their live New York concerts was issued, yes you've guessed it, I ordered it from Amazon and had it DHL'd to me. Wow, absolutely great. When I show my friends the concert, which looks fantastic on a 60 inch HD screen with surround sound, they are amazed, so much so, I have had to order several more copied (from Amazon of course) for them. If you like wild man, super energy live Ukrainian gypsy punk music, then this is for you and even if you don't, the concerts is still amazing.

I discovered these guys a couple of years ago and found them just so much fun.

I went to see them live on the strength of the live dvd in this package. I was a bit unsure at first if this would be my kind of gig. I was wrong, they were first class and the atmosphere electric.

The energy this band has is incerdible,it's almost like they are robots and simply don't get tired.
The CD is a great hour of GOGOL BORDELLO brilliance,with BBC sessions,other sessions and demos. A good mixture of songs too.
The masterpiece of course is the DVD,and what concert footage. The energy they start off with is something to be spellbound by,and they keep it up,so you have 1 hour and 25 minutes of GOGOL BORDELLO doing what so few bands could. The bonus bits are also plentyful and top notch,well worth watching. You have videos and short features to keep you entertained throughout.
You may well argue there are better concerts out there to buy on DVD,and i won't disagree. But just try to find a concert with more energy with the same kind of majestic brilliance as this,not an easy task.
Yep,i'm really glad i got this,top stuff from a top band. GOGOL BORDELLO may not be for everyone,but you simply cannot deny their enthusiam,their passion for what they do.

I bought this after seeing them live at Brixton Academy and I wanted something to remind me of really good night with brilliant musicianship and showmanship. It didn't disappoint! The sound is good for a live gig, so obviously the sound desk did an outstanding job.
