October 25, 2006 - The Crocodile
by Ashley Graham
Forward Russia is the only band that has been able to pull The Plot to Blow Up the Eiffel Tower and Umber Sleeping from my stereo this week. The reason for that is that before this week, Forward Russia is all I was listening to. Forward Russia is the best that pop can be. Forward Russia is the best thing I’ve heard in a long time. Maybe forever. MAYBE FOREVER. I’m in love.
And by the way, does this band remind anyone else of that seemingly easily forgotten but really fucking great band Beep Beep? It took me a very long time to figure that out, so when you see me next, give me a pat on the back (that is, fly to Los Angeles for next Saturday’s Forward Russia show at Spaceland, find me, and give me a pat on the back). And while you’re at it, go see Forward Russia at the Crocodile, because they rule a lot. A LOT.
