The Ukrainians – Respublika

Those familiar with The Ukrainians?who began as a Wedding Present offshoot in 1988 and released an unusual Smiths tribute EP in 1992?will be heartened to know their unique gypsy folk-punk hasn’t been diluted with age. Charging forth like Taras Bulba in a Ramones T-shirt, they even treat us to both “Anarchy In The UK” and “Pretty Vacant” in an east-of-Moscow stylee. Daft but somehow deft with it.
