In the Spin Suite: Gogol Bordello
Eugene Hutz tells us about his band's forthcoming new album, and how Sonic Youth changed his life.
At a festival filled with Entourage wannabes, Gogol Bordello’s Eugene Hutz really has the most kickass entourage: his band of gypsy punk all-stars. Hutz and his posse bum-rushed the Spin suite on Saturday morning, the day after they spattered their explosive multicultural spin-art on the faces of delighted Coachella festivalgoers. SPIN.com’s Peter Gaston chatted with Hutz out on the balcony about his band’s new album, coming this summer, and about how Sonic Youth are directly responsible for Hutz’s rock-star career.
