The irony with bands like Brkovi is the actual, and constant, clash between the "urban" and the "rural". One seems like it can never do without the other, it´s a necessary polarity the two extremes compliment each other with, open to endless analysis. The end result being the whole idea of "Turbofolk" (and Brkovi in that context) now turned into a trash culture phenomenon, encapsulated in a single word - redneck.

Brkovi (meaning: moustache) are arrogant enough to be deliberately proto-everything - primitive as primitive can be; insisting on a parody, the band themselves actually appear to be exactly what they sound like; macho-rednecks under the excuse of "punk", throwing it all back into the face of the public that is already suffocating throat deep in mass-consumerist garbage.

Well, if you try and view it from a certain G. G. Allin or Fear angle, this may be your cup of tea (or better, a pint of beer) - musically competent, but just as cheap, selling balls for kidneys.
