Tonight in Bucharest Kultur Shock at Control Club

Tonight, Bring The Noise invites the public to a Kultur Shock live concert. Hailing from Seattle, the gypsy punk band is on a tour to promote its seventh album, “Ministry of Kultur”.


The band’s latest opus is the expression of Kultur Shock’s creed that nothing is as it should, nowadays. While this is the most accessible album for the American public, the ambivalent and varied style makes the listener uncertain of “what lies waiting round the corner”, and this is exactly what Kultur Shock members had in mind, Yevdjevich explains: “Kultur Shock doesn’t sing about broken hearts and flowers, but about everyday existence and faith that it might get better. Or worse. Punk describes our will to fight for what we believe in, Balkan melodies are the voice of the people we are part of and representing, and finally, metal adventures are our way to ‘rage against the machine’.”


Even if Kultur Shock remains true to the Seattle scene, making regular appearances at a local and national level since 2003, the band offered also a host of concerts on the other side of the ocean and became the symbol of various clubs in Western Europe, Russia, the Balkans and Turkey. The multicultural make-up of the band (Bosnia, Bulgaria, Japan, US) laid its imprint on the Kultur Shock trademark sound.


In 2004, Kultur Shock launched “Kultura Dictatura”, an album produced by Billy Gould (Koolarrow Records), which ensured their rise to international fame.


Kultur Shock members define themselves as “a live band of blue-collar immigrants”.


The selfsame Billy Gould launched, in 2006, their album “We Came to Talk Your Jobs Away”, a vehement protest and a project which expands on their statement about minorities and the status of immigrants.
