After first emerging from an alleyway behind Auckland's Wine Cellar sometime in the May of the 2006, under the guise of Kapitan Shakirov's Krazy Klezmerim; there has been a vague aroma in the air . . . a sprinkle of klezmer and a lingering hint of the Eastern Europeanesque with an exhalation of the Romani, well disguised behind the scent of whiskey and sweat.

But when the Kapitan himself, Mr Daniel Dumnov, embarked on a trip back to his native Russia, the band had to reform, and Benka furtively grabbed the reins.

Through other tribulations, such as The Blackbird winging off to the Bourne of Mel, Benka Boradovsky brought several new players under his bearded wings and the band is now ready to continue spreading it's lingering and addictive scent across the country.

Since then, the Butterfly has flown off to the Ton of Welling. Benka Boradovsky has since stopped hiring virtuosos named after winged creatures.

With the capture and assimilation of Anna Rehkitz, the deer, on the flute, the band is now ready to put into motion it's plans for domination... And with the tour tearing through the South Island in January, simultaneously leaving behind there scent with a new ep "Danse macabre" on sale, it shouldn't be long . . .

Tickets at West Coast Gallery or Gecko, Titirangi Village.
