The Kings of Russian criminal sound return for another go at Taranaki, following hot on the heels of their hugely successful New Zealand debut at WOMAD in March.

Brewed within Melbourne's underground ethnic music scene, VulgarGrad embraces the old songs of Russian thieves with punk classics of the Perestroika era, shot with a strong dose of St Petersburg ska.

This grievous musical harm is delivered via the incredible vocal talents of frontman, Jacek Koman, one of Australia's most formidable stage and screen actors, and his wily and cunning six-piece of brilliantly ingenious musicians.

VulgarGrad's first album, King of Crooks, brazenly taunts us with songs such as, Odessa Jailbreak, Cigarette, A Piss Up Begins with a Bottle, and Junkie, Alcoholic and Drunkard. It's easy to catch their drift, but impossible to escape the excitement of a vodka-fuelled oompah-swing-ska-punk onslaught delivered with raucous menace and grim smiles.
