Radio Moscow

Kick Ass Psychedelic Rock!
One More Great Band You Should Know

BOSTON DATE: Thursday, April 15th
Appearing at Great Scott w/ Naam & Villainer



WORDS TO LIVE BY - "...and jam on through to the end muthafuka!!" I've used that term to mock countless bands who seemed to write half a song, but then have no idea what to do. This will be the first time I use it as a heartfelt compliment. Radio Moscow is a badass hard-rock blues band that I expect to blow the doors clean off Great Scott on Thursday

WHO THEY BE - Radio Moscow is headed up by Parker Griggs who in the studio played both guitar and drums for their eponymous first release, (produced by Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys) as well as their newest album "Brain Cycles". The rest of the trio is made up of bass player Zach Anderson and their newest member, Paul Merrone, who is the group's current drummer.


One to Watch in 2010


When I first listened to Radio Moscow, I didn't realize that both guitar and drums were played by the same person. (I'm still not sure if I should be surprised or not.) When you listen to them, the interplay between the drums and guitar is one of the things that really sticks out. But, is it more impressive that they got that sound recording them separately, I don't know. It simply kicks ass.

A WINNING COMBINATION - As an aside, Radio Moscow is on one of RSL's favorite labels, Alive Naturalsound Records. These are the folks who put out The Black Keys first album, "The Big Come Up" and whose current catalog contains other great acts such as Buffalo Killers, Left Lane Cruiser and Two Gallants.
