    I saw this show a few days earlier in Antwerp. The voice isn’t pre-recorded, he ‘sang’ this just before coming to the mic and it’s looped digitally. Something his son Casey is taking care off. You can’t see this on the video.
    Great song!

    If you like this you might try Gogol Bordello. There’s a free download on their Myspace page right now so pick it up it and see what you think. :0)

    @LandoftheShanks The kid is Sullivan. The drummer is “Brain” Mantia, who is about 25 years older than Casey. He must be really flattered at all the people who think he looks like a teenager on these 2004 tour videos ;-)

    I love how that one foot always come up when he’s at the mic. Are those his songs, Sullivan & Casey on percussion?! One of ‘em looks like a kid [= and I know Casey is always wearing his hat backwards.

    IIRC, the band members were doing some vocals on this tour.

    who else is singing? wouldn’t expect dude to bring in pre-recorded vocals, even as harmony…

    This guy is insane, brilliant, magnetic and lovely. I have been a fan for years now, and he never dissapoints – now if he would only tour a little more. I would drive to hell to see him play a dive bar there…
