¡Forward, Russia!

Yeah, finally the chance to see ¡Forward, Russia!, the punctuation loving band from Leeds again. A recommendation straight from Lammo and I totally agree. We saw these guys twice in SXSW 2006 and barely missed their third performance This band is amazing- I just hope Boston will both turn out and also be an enthusiastic audience. Filter and Spin have both been providing some hype which is good because local press has been non-existent And of course this is also an opportunity to figure out what is happening in the Leeds music scene and more precisely the excellent Dance to the Radio recordlabel. Guitarist Whiskas - yes the one with the ginger beard and sister to drummer Katie, is also one of the founders of Dance to The Radio which boasts excellent bands like 'The Pigeon Detectives, iLikeTrains, This Et Al, O'Fracas amongst many others. Time to ask what we can hope to see at SXSW 2007.
Lets hope they play their new one 'Don't Be a Doctor'.
I will try to blog this gig soon.
