Den flygande bokrullen

Keith W. of the Klezmer Podcast just posted about a great klezmer band from Sweden called "Den flygande bokrullen." At his recommendation I checked them out and am equally enamored. These guys are great. A whomping good time klezmer bar / party band. I'm particularly fond of their track 'Smurf vs. Godzilla' (check it out on their MySpace page). It's total goof. The track in the video below, posted to YouTube by Pettskronk, is more straight up klezmer. It makes wish I was out a bar with my wife, hoisting a pint or three of a good porter, stomping in time, and playing air-clarinet.
