Kletka Red may no longer exist, but they made more records than I thought.

August 12, 2007

I bought and enjoyed Hijacking when it came out in 1996. Definitely the most transformational of the nineties Klezmer activity (excluding Charming Hostess for having a more catholic-with-a-small-c concept of Jewish music and for dabbling in goy tuneage), well-informed by punk, Beefheart, and improv. Then I didn’t hear anything about them until I came across this blog post (via), which tells me that they made another record, Hybrid, before Soybelman hung it up, linking to free lo-fi downloads and the reissue available for sale, and also some YouTube (that’s a YT link, natch).
