Gogol Bordello have cancelled their Australian tour due to unforseen circumstances. My theory: Eugene Hütz’s beard license wasn’t valid to bring his moustache into the country. To tide us all over until they can tour proper, here’s a fragment of one of their paticularly poignant works.

Nobody is making merry, only trotting scared of boss
Everybody’s making hurry for some old forgotten cause
But one thing is surely eternal, it’s condition of a man
Who don’t know where he is going, who don’t know where does he stand
Whose dream power is corked bottle put away in dry dark place
Whose youth power is well buried under propaganda waves
Whose dream life is in opposition with the life he leads today
Whose beaten down in believing it just kinda goes this way!
Oh yeah, oh no, it doesn’t have to be so, it’s possible anytime, anywhere,
Even without any dough
Oh yeah, oh no, it doesn’t have to be so,
Forces of the creative mind are unstoppa-bopappa-ble!
