I leave on my trip to Russia next week and it looks like I’m going to be a busy guy just trying to cover the Punk, Rockabilly and Psychobilly scenes there for all you guys and gals.
As often happens when planning a trip to a first time destination, I go from having zero idea what I’m doing or who to speak to or if there is even a scene to being slammed with responses and options as word finally gets it.
But PLEASE do keep the emails and comments coming please. I don’t plan on sleeping much since the 8 hour time difference is going to mess me up anyway.
One of the many bands that I really want to cover is called Messer Chups from St. Petersburg. They are a surf/rockabilly band that unfortunately is going to be on tour in Europe when I’m in Piter (St. Petersburg’s informal Russian name) so I won’t get to catch them this time around.
But never fear dear reader, thanks to some cool cats in St. Petersburg who’ve already offered to show me around, I’ve got some other rockabilly goodies working for you!
In the meantime I thought I’d share with you this timely video (considering it’s Halloween and Day of the Dead Season) from Messer Chups.
So check em out.
