Notorious for creeping about in the dark, either telling bands to get on stage or taking photos of them. Can be heard saying "let there be no panic" in times of crisis....

The international gypsy punk collective commonly known as Gogol Bordello released their seventh studio album, Seekers and Finders, on Cooking Vinyl in August just passed. This Christmas season sees the multi-faceted musical mentalists traipsing across Europe and the UK, bringing holiday cheer to rooms full of fans eager for a break from the tumultuous world events currently going on.

Joining them on the tour as support is Lucky Chops, a bunch of brassholes from NYC who play party music for good party times.
