RADIO MOSCOW – European tour dates

The Great Escape Of Leslie Maganfuzz
out now on VINYL, CD DIGIPAK & DOWNLOAD

Sounding like Cream on a heady mixture of acid and amphetamines, Radio Moscow will detonate your mind with one listen to their third album “The Great Escape of Leslie Magnafuzz”. – Terrascope Rumbles

Nothing succeeds like excess and Radio Moscow deserve a shedload of it. Success, that is. An old-style power trio with an overload of psychedelic headspace, they’re structured around guitarist Parker Griggs whose exemplary six-string work carves sonic holes. – i94 Bar

Top 20 of 2011 – Bill’s Picks

Well it’s that time of year again. Time to name my favorite albums of 2011. 2011 brought us a lot of good stuff by a lot of great bands. 2011 also brought on a lot of surprises from bands that were really unknown until their material was released or well afterwards. Bandcamp played a huge role in music discovery for me. It turned out hundreds of great albums not only released in 2011 but in years past as well. This list, my favorites as well as honorable mentions, is no way a complete list of what was released this year. There is just to much out there that I don’t either have time to get to, never heard of or won’t discover until well after this year is completely over. I know there’s going to be a few surprises. Let it be known that I listened to a LOT of new albums this year and picking my top 20 out of the hundreds was very hard to do.

20. The Sade – Damned Love – (review) I really didn’t know what to expect when this one came across my desk but I needed to check it out. And check it out I did. I was pretty damn impressed that I listened to the album at least 10 times in a row. In my review I stated “The majority of the album is all alchchol fueled hard rock. Throughout my listening of the album I couldn’t help but think that this is what Social Distortion may sound like if they were more rooted in 70′s hard rock as opposed to their punk roots.” Granted it’s been a few months since I’ve listened to it, it still has a strong spot in my top 20.

Review – Radio Moscow – The Great Escape Of Leslie Magnafuzz

To quote Thin Lizzy, “The boys are back in town.” Radio Moscow are back with their 3rd album titled The Great Escape of Leslie Magnafuzz. Like past releases, The Great Escape Of Leslie Magnafuzz features guitar prodigy Parker Griggs playing Hendrix inspired blues rock. This is their best release to date and they’ve had some great material with their last 2 releases.

Once the lead track “Little Eyes” kicks in, you’re in for the long haul. 50 minutes of pure unadulterated blues rock. Some of the more interesting and good tracks are “Densaflorativa,” an instrumental song that has a tribal feeling to it due to the drum beating. “I Don’t Need Nobody” has a distinct mid 70’s sound going for it. Songs like “Speedfreak” and “No Time” have a bit of a psychedelic feel to it. The cell phone ringing will certainly mess with you the first time around. This album is so good, it’s hard to pick a clear cut favorite, they’re all good in their own right. (more…)

“Radio Moscow does for Blue Cheer what The Black Keys do for 21st century blues.” – The Austin Chronicle

Indeed. If the less than loud, keep it steady ethos of today is getting a bit boring and polite, think again. The essence… heck, the very drugged-out, red-eyed heart and soul…  of the dirty, loud, heavy power-trio is not dead. In fact, in the case of Radio Moscow it is literally brimming with rude health.
