RADIO MOSCOW TO RULE THE AIRWAVES AT DESERTFEST2018!
Psychedelic freak-outs, gonzo jams, acid-fried kaleidoscopes, towering experimental entanglement, Hendrix-y shit... Whatever you want to call this brand of musical madness, we all flippin' love it here at DF Towers. And so rather than have to dig up Jimi, Mitch and Noel for one hell of an awkward reunion, we booked ourselves one of the next best bands in today's world: Radio Moscow.
Kicked off way back in '03 by mainman, frontman, guitaristman and singerman Parker Griggs, Radio Moscow always aimed straight for the bluesy side of psyche and never looked back. From their self-titled debut in 2007 to the triumphant and emphatic 'New Beginnings' ten years on, and despite numerous rhythm section changes over the years, few can deny the Iowan power trio's reputation as one of the most exciting, eclectic and electric bands of their wholesome ilk. Such did they set the Ballroom alive with their powerful, rhythmic jams at Desertfest 2014, we simply couldn't resist asking Parker and the boys back into town for one more blast of high-energy, no-nonsence rock.
They're not Russian, and they're certainly not available on shortwave, but Radio Moscow are one frequency you won't want to hear go silent once you tune in to them this coming May in Camden Town.
