Apparently the members of Radio Barbă, a seven-piece band around guitarist/vocalist Thomas Baert, have carefully listened to the example of big brother Gogol Bordello, as like that American band, Radio Barbă mixes gypsy sounds and Balkan grooves with strong punk influences. Barbă, the last part of the band's name can be translated from Romanian as "beard" and is a nod to front man Thomas Baert's surname. After last year's debut EP 'Bazar În Mişcare', 'Soviet Macho' is the second release by this band from the East-Flemish town of Oudenaarde. And just like on that first EP, on 'Soviet Macho' Radio Barbă serves five festive drunken singalongs between Balkan, punk and rock. Nastrovje ("Cheers")!
