Immigrant Punk

Gypsy punk anyone? For those of you who watch independant films, you may recognize Eugene Hutz from Everything is Illuminated or even that movie that Madonna directed, what was it called, Filth and Wisdom? For the rest of you, he's the lead singer of Gogol Bordello.
Gogol Bordello is a band from New York with a multi-ethnic background. Eugene himself comes from Ukraine. He and his family left Ukraine after hearing of the Chernobyl meltdown, which is the worst nuclear disaster in history. He spent several years in Eastern Europe in refugee camps. Through that he gained quite an incredible background in music. Check them out. You won't regret it.
