Label: Alive Records
Genre: Garage/Blues Rock
Power trio Radio Moscow has been playing heavy blues-rock since 2004, but it wasn’t until this year that their true debut album was released. 3 and 3 Quarters is the solo effort from one third of the trio Parker Griggs, who recorded this entirely on his own when he was 17-18 years old in his basement after becoming tired of the punk music his then-band were performing.
With superb garage rock energy and slinky blues licks combined, Griggs manages to create twelve songs which hark bark to his influences of The Seeds, Chocolate Watchband, Nuggets and Pebbles (among others) while also creating a really enjoyable listen. I’m sure all fans of Radio Moscow have checked this out by now, but anybody wishing to get themselves into some borderline chaotic blues rock, then you must check out 3 and 3 Quarters.
