Album Review

Gogol Bordello's cult-like following would be the first one to tell you that the nine-piece's sweat-soaked gypsy-punk needs to be seen live to be truly experienced, so it's no big surprise that the band would show off their frantic, carnival sideshow on disc. Live from Axis Mundi compiles live performances from BBC sessions, along with home-brewed, drum machine-backed demos, and a pair of songs recorded with producers Steve Albini ("Stivali E Colbacco") and Victor Van Vugt ("Troubled Friends.")

After being evacuated to western Ukraine in 1986 following the Chernobyl disaster, Hütz became enamored of the mystical, outsider qualities of Gypsy music. Living as a refugee...
