Radio Moscow came about a few years back in a Story City basement. The First version of Radio Moscow Began as a solo project by Parker called Garbage Composal. At this time the sound was very raunchy mid-sixties-ish garage rock heavily influenced by the hidden gems and bands on the nuggets comps, yet still sounding very much its own. Parker recorded one albums worth of the Garbage Composal Demos under the new name Radio Moscow. (you can hear those songs here!: www.myspace.com/radiomoscowtheearlydays Along with the new name came new bass player Serana Andersen. This line-up lasted for a few years without any drummer. Around this time the band started evolving and a whole new sound was created. Still garage-y but now channeled through the blues with experimental breakdowns, unpredictable tempo changes, crazy rave-ups and fuzzed out psychedelic guitar work. For shows parker would pre-record the drums on a 4-track and then blasts it through amplification. Serana and Parker moved to Colorado in the quest for a drummer and a new scene. Things started out very promising when Dan from The Black Keys called Parker up said he dug the demo that he gave him at a concert and was going to try to push it for us to get it on ALIVE/BOMP records. Parker returned by himself to Iowa to try to get the band up and going. Luke McDuff from Ames filled the vacant bass spot. Together they recorded the debut album for ALIVE/BOMP records with producer Dan Auerbach of the Black Keys. The Album was released Feb 27 2007. Luke had to go back to school so he continued looking for a solid line-up. After one tryout Zach Anderson jumped on as new bassist. With the help of a few drummer friends (keith rich, todd stevens, paul marrone, cory berry) Radio Moscow has been touring ever since. The trio plans to be hitting the road extra hard this year to promote the second Radio Moscow studio album "Brain Cycles"
The Last Internationale
The Last Internationale is a NY band founded by singer Delila Paz and guitarist Edgey. Fusing the powerful storytelling and working-class concerns of classic folk and blues with the rabble-rousing spirit of punk rock, they have built a reputation through steady touring. TLI has shared the stage with artists such as Tom Morello, Joan Baez, Tim Armstrong and Wayne Kramer. Acts they have toured with include Robert Plant, Neil Young, The Who, Kings of Leon, Slash, Scott Weiland, Weezer, One Republic, and many more.
TLI self-released an EP in 2013 called New York, I Do Mind Dying. The band's debut full-length studio album, We Will Reign, was released in 2014 on Epic Records after LA Reid signed them based solely on hearing their cover of Woody Guthrie's "Deportees" and original song demos of "Wanted Man" and "Workers of the World - Unite!", a topical workers' anthem. The situation turned darkly ironic as they were left fighting for their identity against the pressures of assimilating to the homogenizing, hyper-sexualized culture of the pop industry. In 2015, finally freed from their recording contract, TLI released a Mahalia Jackson cover, "I'm Gonna Live the Life I Sing About in My Song," on Tom Morello's Firebrand Records. They are currently finishing up their sophomore album and getting ready to get back on the road.
