"Last song with this lineup ever!" Radio Moscow draw blood on stage in Iowa; Cambridge gig still on, but with new dudes


This week in Anton Newcombe-esque epic onstage meltdown news: The former drummer of psychedelic marauders RADIO MOSCOW fucked singer/guitarist Parker Griggs up something gnarly immediately after their tour kickoff Saturday in Iowa. Shit gets real about 35 seconds into this clip when Griggs chucks his guitar in the general direction of the drum kit, prompting disgruntled band mate Cory Berry to hurl the ax back at Griggs’ skull with deadly accuracy.

But all’s well that ends well. According to the exceptionally entertaining press release: Griggs got his forehead sewn back together with 14 stitches, swiftly rounded up a fresh rhythm section (his bassist also quit that night), and didn’t even miss the next scheduled tour stop in Chicago a day later. Catch ‘em at the Middle East Downstairs tomorrow night, opening for Swedish retro-prog outfit Graveyard.

Let’s hope the new Radio Moscow drummer has a gentler disposition than the old one…or, at least, shittier aim.
