    Yeah I'm really into Mischief Brew and I love their all over the place style, and their lyrics, they just have a kick-ass sound altogether. So I was wondering if anyone knows of any other bands that have this kind of feel to it because it's hard for me to find them. I like the sound of banjos, accoridians, bellowing voices, a gypsy swing to it, I dono, just looking, so if you know of any I'd appreciate it thanks!

    Try some of these, maybe not all tried and true anarchists but at least they're kids with heart:

    Ghost Mice (Obviously)
    Andrew Jackson Jihad (honest acoustic)
    This Bike is a Pipe Bomb (Obviously again, I get into them sometimes)
    Rosa (Texas folky folks - I like "Starch and Carbohydrates")
    Why are We Building Such a Big Ship (New Orleans accordion slow swingers)
    My Graveyard Jaw (New Orleans clowns)
    Casa de Chihuahuas (drunken banjo pickers)
    G-String Orchestra (mostly Romanian folk tunes but these Alaskan kids are rad)

    Anyway, I'd love to find more of this stuff too. It feels right.

    Good Luck!

    they aren't anarcho... but check out the pogues, punky tunes with banjo, accordian, mandolin, and tin whistle as main instruments, along with typical guitar drum and bass.

    Dude GOGOL BORDELLO.
    Really really really awesome gypsy punk band.
    Also not really punk but try "Traveling Band of Gypsy Nomads"
    I'm pretty sure both these guys have myspaces and websites, whichever is your cup of tea. You won't be disappointed.

    God damn it! Folk punk has gotten to be such a buzz word/phrase/label lately! So much so that whenever someone mentions some band, that could be totally unrelated musically to the "plan-it-x sound of folk punk", it will infallibly be compared to just that being the first half of your list... As far as the second half goes i can't say, but i'll have to check them out... Not that there's anything wrong with that kind of folk punk (i'm listening to Spoonboy right now and I plan on making out a mail order to plan-it-x today) and not at all meaning to jump all over ya, but the dude asked for stuff along the lines of Mischief Brew and Ghost Mice is not exactly the first thing that comes to mind pertaining to that line of thinking...

    Honestly, there's not alot of bands out there that are going to match up to Mischief Brew, but i'll name a few...

    This may sound little weird, but the first thing i would recommend would be Tom Waits, start with Rain Dogs, that album is probably the closest thing to the same feel as Smash The Windows or Bakenal i've ever come across.
    Chris Neuman did a collaborative album on Fistolo with Erik Petersen that is pretty good.
    Meisce would be something to check out, also on Fistolo records.
    Seconding Gogol Bordello and The Pogues
    Greenland Whalefishers from Norway, even better celtic punk than The Pogues, although I'm sure that's blasphemy
    I've also heard that Mutiny is good from Australia is good although I've never heard any of their material
    Bread And Roses, who did a split with Mischief Brew and are also on Fistolo
    The Dolomites started out playing some awesome celtic punk but evolved into playing a crazy mix of Romanian and Japanese folk punk.
    More recent Murder By Death, amazing folky punky stuff that i'm pretty sure is not associated with punk rock in any way.
    Streetlight Manifesto, World/Inferno, This Bike Is a Pipe Bomb, Evil Robot Us' ,and i'm sure you've heard of Defiance, Ohio
    and i'm sure countless lesser known bands...

    Fuckin A, sparkle the Blackbird Raum and Dandelion Junk Queens.
    Blackbird Raum is and has been my favorite band for a long time, they are amazing and worth looking into.
    If you like these bands, Hail Seizures are also really good and somewhat similar.

    not really punk but if you like swing type stuff you should check out Big Bad Voodoo Daddy or Poindexter...i know that mischeif brew does delve into swing alot, especially with bakenal and smash the windows
