Sea-soaked Gypsy Folk

"They have the ability to take an indifferent half-listener and turn him or her into a frenzied, hopelessly unselfconscious dervish inside of a short set. They perform intelligent, beautifully crafted foot-stompers with cackling humour and delicious guitarmanship...The music they deliver feels like it was written for that particular stage, on that night, for that audience. Few bands achieve that in a lifetime.'’
