Oscillations with Polska Radio One - An Interview

Momento freak out total no TBTCI, psych pesado diretamente a Rússia, o nome da esbórnia é Polska Radio One.

Quatro doentios resolveram jogar contra o frio de Moscou um psych mântrico com fortes doses de Silver Apples, Sun Ra, experimentalismos cabalísticos que dão uma sonoridade forte e marcada ao Polska Radio One.

Escutar o debute homônimo lançado no final do no passado é entrar em transe desde o início e adentrar a seita dos caras.

Agora o difícil mesmo é sair, mas na boa, e quem estará mesmo a fim de sair?

***** Interview with Polska Radio One *****

Q. When did Polska Radio One starts, tell us about the history...
Sasha - As a band it starts, I think, when Dima, who played in few garage rock/60’s psych influenced bands before meet Fedya and Yura, who’s got interest to explore the same directions in sound and invited his former bandmate Drew to play keys/synth.

I’ve known Dima for a long time but, at the start of Polska Radio, I haven’t been playing with the band.

Sometimes jam with them and take part in all of the studio recordings. Joined in after recording of first album.

Fedya - I was fok around in vinyl store when my homie Egor worked, someday his homie Dima visited store and we are together get homies
