First connotations; Joe Strummer, The Clash, Gogol Bordello & King Kahn. The Black Needles are a rootsy rock trio from distant Sao Paolo and they kick big ass. No Bullshit Rock/ Punk /Grunge /Rockabilly. Gtr, bass & drums, and the guitar sounds like it ought to sound. No wonder the local promoters (Sshaking records) who brought us King Kahn and the BBQ show, were responsible for this awesome gig we saw last night at Levontin 7, took some wild videos, hopefully we`ll share those with you in couple of days. Anyhow, from the very first note I have heard from them, I have drifted back to the ‘London calling’ days, yeah, that right, and last night was a sort of Clash revival night, that`s what they really remind me of, and if those guys will survive the winding road they have chosen, that`s not the last time you heard about them.

Watch this awesome hardcore gypsy punk madness – Gogol Bordello live at the Barbie club Tel Aviv – this is part 2 of 7 by Lolive.
Gogol Bordello tore the place down, brought the roof down, with a nasty hardcore punk gypsy klezmer folk metal, no bullshit set, the whole house was shaking. This was one of the best sets I have seen in Barbie, Tel Aviv. Boom Pam were opening and I thought they kicked a… till these guys hit the stage. These are some images from this magical night, and later on video clips, hopefully we have succeeded to capture part of last night`s mayhem for you.
This collaboration of Guignol & Mischief Brew is being released these days on Fistolo records. This is a beautiful mish mash of folk, punk, rock, klezmer, gypsy music and jazz.
“Flight dirty” contains seven Mischief Brew songs with Guignol as backing band, six Guignol songs with Erik on guitar, a Django Reinhardt cover, and an Iron Maiden cover.
Guignol is led by Franz Nicolay ( The hold steady), Peter Hess (Balkan beat box), George Rush (Hem), John Bollinger (Antony and the Johnsons).
MISCHIEF BREW`s music falls somewhere between the categories of pirate punk, Celtic folk, gypsy swing, devilish jazz, American olde-tyme and country.
Recorded at Vibromonk Studios with Danny Shatzky (Firewater, Balkan Beat Box, Gogol Bordello), GUIGNOL & MISCHIEF BREW’S Fight Dirty collaboration is a fascinating record, so versatile, and whether you are a jazz, pop, folk, gypsy music fan, you should own this one.
