I've discovered my new favourite band.

Psychedelic fuzzy guitars, heavy rock and some seriously good guitar playing and songwriting.

Very much inspired by Hendrix, Zeppelin, Sabbath and a lot more psychedelia too.

    The American band, rather than British one?

    I was thinking the exact same when I saw this last night.  To be honest I've never heard either, they're just familiar names.  I was surprised to learn that Brian Tatler had left the UK band before they released any albums.

    I used to listen to Radio Moscow a lot in the early 80s on an old valve radio with an aerial that went over the top of the house. On a good night I could hear stuff from a lot further away too.

    I have no idea if Radio Moscow still exists… given that the Soviet Union doesn’t.

    Funny how the mind works. The first thing I thought of when I read the title was the Orb track U.F.Orb that has a sample of a Radio Moscow announcer at the beginning.

    Why I remember this crap, and not the time of that important meeting in the morning, I'll never know.

    Well, apparently it's now called Radio Sputnik (since 2014), having been Voice Of Russia (1993-2014).

    Googling 'Radio Moscow' takes you to the band's site though.

    Great band - love that fuzzy Hendrixy strat tone for the more psychedelic stoner rock stuff, makes a change from Gibson into Orange/Marshall.
