Dope Calypso is a Budapest-based, Hungarian garage punk band. All the members had played several years in various Hungarian underground formations until they found each other in October 2013.

After the first rehearsal it was obvious that, although the guys all came with different musical backgrounds and have different tastes in music, together they found the music they all enjoy writing and playing.

They instantly started writing songs and already in March 2014, Dope Calypso went to studio to record their first album. After mixing the album in Italy at T.U.P Studio, and mastering in the USA at Mystery Room Mastering, Dope Calypso released the first single from the debut LP on 18th June 2014, containing two tracks: Black Swamp Thing and Molester. The single had positive feedback from the Hungarian music press.

To maintain the interest, the band also released their first official music video for the track Black Swamp Thing during the summer.

Eventually, the debut LP – Farewell to the Fairy, Goodbye to the Ghost – premiered on 15th September 2014 on one of the leading Hungarian music journal’s online page, claiming the band’s debut LP was dirty-good. The album was released through a brand new independent label, Launching Gagarin Records & Management.

One thing that makes Dope Calypso especially unique is the fact that they don’t have a bass player. Nonetheless, nobody misses the bass neither form the album, nor from live concerts. The band’s performances are considered to be powerful, very-loud and as effective as an energy-bomb.
