How familiar are you with Gogol Bordello? It’s been more than 10 years since I’ve known them, listened to them and had fun playing along or dancing their tunes! But while most of their songs are madly deeply gypsy punkish, none stroke me quite like Start Wearing Purple.
It’s been more than 7 years since it has first hit the airwaves and keeps being played ever since with the same success – at least I keep on listening to it and enjoying it even more than I did in 2006 when it was first released.
Just for a short reference: Gogol Bordello hails from the heart of Manhattan and it has traveled the world continuously, sustaining their gypsy punk style through concert after concert, chaining festivals and live representations. I thought about this happy, unusual, chaotic, punk song today because I’m fully supporting the Lupus Awareness Day. Which comes with a loooot of purple! So: Start Wearing Purple, wearing Purple / Start wearing Purple for me now…! – right after the jump!
