Album Review

"Amerikan people, they have come to take your jobs away!" announces the cover of FUCC the I.N.S., and this Bosnian-Bulgarian-American-Japanese outfit could put a lot of U.S. bands out of business. Their potent mix of punk, metal, and Balkan brass band music (with in-your-face production by Billy Gould of Faith No More) is sarcastic — there are takeoffs of Right Said Fred's "I'm Too Sexy" and Backstreet Boys as part of the mix — but it hews closely to traditional Balkan music, played with a fiery intensity. The opening "Nadija" explodes out of the box, with vocalist Gino Srdjan Yevdjevich wailing like a banshee over the guitars and tortuous, stop-time horns (whose sounds are eerily reminiscent of King Crimson's "21st Century Schizoid Man"). But they're equally capable of unaccompanied singing of sheer glory and using thoroughly contemporary house drum loops as part of their musical arsenal. "Montenegro H.C." is as boastful as a rapper talking about his money or genitalia, while "How to Fucc Songs & Irritate People" could almost have come from the Zappa songbook at times, at least if Zappa had been raised in Sarajevo. Whether it's rock, metal, or world music is almost irrelevant; as the album's title implies, boundaries are man-made, not natural, and should be treated with cultural disdain. Quite deliberately incendiary, this isn't an album that asks to be heard; it demands it.

Buy This Now!

This does not have got some great metal songs or some great gypsy songs. This is a trippy mix of the two to create a a great album. Think if System Of A Down took their whole Armenian folk-ness to a whole other level. It's great, crazy, rockin', awesome, unique, original, and you can either belly dance or headbang to it.

Kultur Shock

Bought this album at the live show (first time I saw them I was hooked). If you like Balkan Gyspy folk music, hard core metal, and punk ... this is the perfect album. The fusion of traditional with modern is genius and some of the lyrics are clever, sarcastic, and very funny. I just bought another kultur shock album on iTunes. I love this band.




Genre: Rock

Years Active: '90s, '00s

Throw together a pair of Bosnians, a couple of Bulgarians, three Americans, and a bassist from Japan and you've got culture shock. Or at least Kultur Shock, the Seattle-based band who freely mix punk and metal with Balkan brass. Leader Gino Yevdjevich became a professional musician in his native Sarajevo when he was 16, making a good living playing commercial music. All that changed in 1991, when the war in the former Yugoslavia began. With no money and precious little food or electricity, the local...
