BAND SPOTLIGHT: Russian Girlfriends
The two Bobs speak with Ian, Adam and Colin of the Albequerque-based punk band, Russian Girlfriends, on this week’s DSR “Band Spotlight”. Bob jokes that while researching them on the internet, the first hit asked him for his credit card information. The bandmembers only fuel the jest by admitting that most of their Facebook likes come from middle-eastern men looking for brides. Also, it’s a DSR WORLD PREMIER – debuting an unreleased Russian Girlfriends’ track called “Tad Kuebler”.
Bobby discusses a news story, which inspires Bob to remember his Pirate Radio days. Bob coins the phrase “punk rock ‘Stairway To Heaven’” – alluding to the lengthy NOFX classic, “The Decline”.
Bob takes Bobby to the Punk Rock Academy and gives him an assignment: to find and interview a New York City “Crack Rock” band.
Bobby and the bum take a trip to Warwick, New York to visit the Orange County, NY-based hardcore punk band, Entropy. Bobby interviews bandmates Brian, Brian, Colin and Patrick on-location at Tuscan Cafe, the iconic “vegan-friendly” restaurant where these OCHC punkers once played their first show. They discuss the band’s hardcore roots while expressing disdain for the catchy ska song the group released as a “bonus track” on their latest record. Watch the FULL INTERVIEW on the DSR YouTube page.
