Song of the day – 183: Gogol Bordello
Fucking great band, fucking great song, fucking great performance, fucking great sound, fucking great video. What more can I say?
One of my PhD supervisors wonders aloud on Facebook if “the whole thing of this clip was Sony doing a social justice marketing strategy” – very likely, and I’m sure both band and record company see it as a fortuitous compromise but fuck it. I’m way willing to suspend cynicism for a song as balls-out provocative and catchy as this.
