Has the great age of gypsy-inspired outlandishness returned to either/or? Probably not (oh Doug, wherefore art thou, seriously dude), but I sure hope you aren’t burnt out on it just yet. I do not claim to be an expert in this marvellous genre (or any other genre for that matter); rather, I make the counter-claim that extensive knowledge is not at all necessary, as gypsy music can be measured against the metric of “is/is not suitably crazy, will/will not make you dance”. Based on that complex, all-encompassing calculation, taking a look at the band’s name and the name of the song is enough to send readings off the friggin’ chart.
