Voltaire - Stakes And Torches (The Uprising Of The Peasants)

The dance sounds like Eastern European gypsys are visiting with a rock drummer. The vocalists sound like a broadway play, and the lyrics have vivid scenes of life. In the best way, like Fiddler on the Roof, not operatic, but realistic. This does not sound like anyone else, and to that I have nothing but praise. Despite it’s ‘differentness’, it is extremely listenable and makes for fun dancing. Perfect for any Friday night party. Simply slip it into the mix. Shoutout for the equally impressive dance of Happy Birthday My Olde Friend ("too old to remember, too drunk to forget"). Voltaire
