Born in a Budapest flea market, Sveki Kurva combines Hungarian "Dance House (Tanchaz)" music with Balkan-Hungarian ethnic traditions. Samples and speed guitar keep the stew thick and chunky, and Ministry and Magyar folk music influenced "Hunter Killer (SpeedyGonzalesMix)" on Sveki Kurva's latest opus. Fortunately, Szeki's anarcho-situationist agenda is forged into musical creativity. They mix the folk instrumentation and sounds with the speed and delivery of hyper-dance. The purposefully high BPMs, squeaky high-end motifs and breakneck pace shifts make the album a challenge and a welcome change -- literal punk gypsies that probably already stole something from your favorite genre.
