THE EDITED PRESS RELEASE: “It seems as though the majority of rockers circa the early 21st century have become to be too fascinated and mesmerized by modern day technology, sounds, and production. In other words, it sounds like it’s getting further and further away the sound of a band playing together live — all together in the same room.
Thankfully, we can always count on the lads in Radio Moscow to deliver real vintage rock sounds — as heard throughout their performance at the Crossroads Festival for Rockpalast, which is now officially released as the CD/DVD Live at Rockpalast 2015.
Featuring members singer/guitarist Parker Griggs, bassist Anthony Meier, and drummer Paul Marrone, the 19-track release (filmed on May 18, 2015) features fully cranked versions of all the Radio Moscow classics fans have come to expect hearing on the concert stage: I Just Don’t Know, 250 Miles, Broke Down, Brain Cycles, No Good Woman, etc.
Formed in 2003 by Griggs in Ames, Iowa, the band has been based in San Diego county for several years now. Radio Moscow have released five studio albums to date. 2007’s self-titled debut was produced by The Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach, who introduced the band to Alive Naturalsound records, the label that has released the band’s next three albums: 2009’s Brain Cycles, 2011’s The Great Escape of Leslie Magnafuzz, and 2014’s Magical Dirt (the last title being the one that the trio was supporting at the time of this performance’s taping). In 2017, the group offered up New Beginnings.
Radio Moscow have toured and performed throughout the world with the likes of Graveyard, Witchcraft, Joe Bonamassa, Pentagram, The Sheepdogs, Nebula and Bang, to name but a few. In addition to performing at the Crossroads Festival, they have played the Ride Festival, Desert Daze, Electric Funeral, End Hip End It, Psycho California festival, and as is only appropriate, have headlined shows in both St. Petersburg and Moscow in Russia.
To experience Radio Moscow in all their high-energy, sweaty, and amplified glory, you have made a very wise selection Live at Rockpalast 2015 is a definitive, must-see/must-hear live document of the trio.”
