THE GREAT ESCAPE... (ALIVE)
THE GREAT ESCAPE OF LESLIE MAGNAFUZZ....LTD. EDITION GATEFOLD LP. Radio Moscow's popularity is growing rapidly, as more and more fans tune in to their unique brand of American psychedelic blues rock.
Radio Moscow's music is rooted in the power trio sound of the late sixties and early seventies, and they have been compared to Blue Cheer, Hendrix, Cream, Ten Years After, and similar bands from the golden age of rock'n'roll.
The band is the brain child of guitarist/drummer/singer/songwriter Parker Griggs, with Zach Anderson on bass, and Cory Berry handling the drums on stage.
They released their first "self-titled" album on Alive Naturalsound records in 2007, produced by Dan Auerbach of the Black Keys.
The record received rave reviews and praise worldwide, and in 2009 their second album, the hard-grooving stoner rock album "Brain Cycles" was released, also on Alive Naturalsound.
This, their 3rd album, is their most psychedelic and powerful work to date. It was recorded, mixed, and mastered analog at the legendary Prairie Sun recording in Northern California.
In order to achieve the true natural sound they were looking for, the band used vintage Supro, Gibson, and Alamo amps, as well as other off-beat gems, while Parker Griggs sometimes ran his vocals through a tape echo, a Leslie cabinet or an old Gibson reverb tank.
"The Great Escape of Leslie Magnafuzz" is an amazing album that updates an old-school style with craft, passion and plenty of psychedelics.
