“We Came to Take Your Jobs Away” – Kultur Shock

Comment 1 Standard

Kultur Shock hails from Seattle and mixes punk rock with traditional gypsy music. This album, “We’ve Come to Take Your Jobs Away”, is one of their best. Two standout tracks are “Istanbul” and “Hashishi”.

Open that gate, ’cause I swear to Allah,
I shall break the studs and the bloody hinges,
So what if my faith is infidel to yours,
Just put me out of misery, Emina,
hate me not, I beseech you, ’cause for weeks I’m high,
Drinking with old bums, destroying my life,
‘Till the early hours sitting in the bar,
Listening to the life of hamdu lillah saz.

  1. If you’re not familiar with Gogol Bordello, the original Gypsy Punks, I strongly recommend you check them out.
