Gogol Bordello are a gypsy punk band, comprised of members from across the globe. They formed in Lower Manhattan, New York City, in 1999.

You’d probably be forgiven for not having an encyclopaedic knowledge of the history of gypsy punk; after all, it’s hardly the most mainstream of genres. In truth, though, it’s difficult to know if that’s even the most appropriate tag to apply to Gogol Bordello; they certainly take plenty of influence from gypsy music, not least through their incorporation of the accordion and the violin, and the energy that they pour into their live shows and rigid adherence to their own aesthetic means they have the punk side taken care of, too. It’s just that Gogol Bordello, often, feel utterly uncategorizable.

Led by irrepressible frontman Eugene Hutz, Gogol Bordello had slowly begun to carve out an underground reputation for themselves by the mid-noughties, mainly thanks to their raucous gigs and apparently never-ending touring schedules. Rapturous critical acclaim for their fourth album, though – 2005’s ‘Gypsy Punks: Underground World Strike’, as well as a series of incendiary television appearances helped expose them to a wider audience; in terms of the latter, a riotous rendition of ‘Not a Crime’ on Later…with Jools Holland was surely the highlight. Since then, they’ve been staples of the European and North American festival circuits, and they recorded a song for Coca-Cola’s Euro 2012 advertising campaign, entitled ‘Let’s Go Crazy’.
