New band from Moscow, consisting of four lads from the cities Mod & music scene. Members played by THE VICE, THE PRETTY GREEN, STONE COLD BOYS and of course Sasha from the WTC/ THE RIOTS.
Sasha´s first music cuts turned up in 2007 as the WHITE TRAINERS COMMUNITY with one full length album and a few singles and EP´s. Soon they called it a day, but were seen again on stage early 2010. But from now on as THE RIOTS! Released again one album and a goodly amount of singles & EP´s. Expanded the storm by touring Europe three times, but failed due to not issued visas by an UK tour in 2013 and another Europe tour in 2015. Both tours had to be cancelled. Currently THE RIOTS are in a sleeping process.
Talking about contemporaries of the WTC/ THE RIOTS... LONG TALL SHORTY around 40 years ago could hit the mark!?
brand new 5 song vinyl 10″ EP. First three songs are puristic 79´style Mod/ PowerPop, how it should sound like today. Followed by splendid The Kinks influenced smasher ” To A Reason”, and closed with “Don’t Want You Around”, a R&B tinged tune in the vein of early Dr. Feelgood in their Milk and Alcohol days. Written and recorded during some hot summer nights in the streets of Moscow.
… Cause we’re gonna have some fun tonight!!!
