"There are gigs where you want to dance on the tables, weep in your borscht, rip your clothes off and immolate yourself with schnapps and a Zippo just for the hell of it, and gigs where you really, really want to join the band. If you come away from an evening with the New Budapest Cafe Orchestra without wanting to do at least two things from that list, then you are no human." (The Brighton Argus)
