Boys, girls and Pepsi

Posted on by Mikey Moscow in Без рубрики | Leave a comment

I recently started contributing to Pepsi‘s new website about music. The first subject I knew I had to cover was the comeback of girlbands and boybands – the ultimate force in pop music, that pretty much smashing it across the globe. And it’s not all One Direction in there: I had to squeeze in awesome five-piece RedOne-produced boyband Midnight Red and The Pussycat Dolls 2.0-that-never-happened girlband G.R.L. It’s in Russian, but GoogleTranslate is your friend.

Just sing me one more song

I didn’t just take an interview with the girlband heaven that is The Dolly Rockers during my trip to London in March. I also asked them to sing the chorus from their RedOne-produced drunk-anthem ‘One More’. Now that the song’s finally online, I can share their stunning acapella performance right on the street.

Much Ado About Whedon

Posted on by Mikey Moscow in Cinema | Leave a comment

Limited releases are tricky to catch, but so far I’ve been lucky: last year I got to New York just in time to see ‘Detention’ and on my recent second trip to London I managed to see Joss Whedon’s ‘Much Ado About Nothing’. Being a big Buffy/Angel/Dollhouse fan, I knew that’s one film I’ll love right away. And I did. So much that I had to write a review. What do you do when you just directed a movie that’s …

The Dolly Rockers

“What is that? Did some hooker give it to you?” – Daniele returns the red-stained note to the seller. It’s Friday night around 9pm and I’m in London’s Soho with the The Dolly Rockers – British pop trio with Lucie, Daniele and Sophie rocking their ‘girly rockstars’ image to the perfect ten (it’s Lucie’s Birthday tomorrow, so there’s a celebration to be had after our interview). Right now we’re in a tiny iphone-cases-store: Lucie’s getting her 1st ever iphone cover …

Posted on by Mikey Moscow in Blog, Party | Leave a comment

I’m off to Saint Petersburg today to interview Little Boots, but I’ll be back in Moscow Saturday morning – just in time to get ready for the next ‘Mikey Moscow’s Party’. This time it’s retro-pop night with us celebrating the ever-lasting glory of 2003’s biggest hits – from ‘Sound of the Underground’ to ‘In Da Club’, from ‘Crazy in love’ to ‘Hole in the Head’. The party starts at 9pm at the ‘Darling, I’ll Call U Later’ bar at B.Strochenovskiy, …

Chromeo

Seriously not sure what my legs are doing while I’m interviewing Chromeo last Friday.

Interview with The Raveonettes

Posted on by Mikey Moscow in Articles, Interviews, Music | Leave a comment

My recent (bourbon-filled) trip to Saint Petersburg coincided with the first Russian gig of the Danish indie rockers The Raveonettes, who I’ve discovered on the soundtrack for the ‘Ringer’ series back in 2012. I met up with a slightly tired Sharin and Sune a couple of hours before their show to discuss their sweet/noisy sound, latest album (which includes a very nice dreamy ode to New York called ‘She Owns The Streets’), social media and balancing life at home with …

The article I wrote for the March and April issues Moscow-based newspaper ‘Akzia’. You can download the full issues on newspaper’s website March The piece on ‘Keds’ – the play from Moscow’s Praktika theater. April Interview with indie pop heroes Dragonette – that marks our third interview. By the way their ‘Live in this city’ was recently featured on ’90210′ which actually doesn’t matter that much, but was a sweet surprise for me. And my report on my February trip …

Posted on by Mikey Moscow in Music, Travel, Без рубрики | Leave a comment

From drum’n’bass-inspired debut single to Ibiza-friendly 20th one, it was a long journey of crossing all the pop boundaries while consistently having fun for Girls Aloud. Their ‘Ten’ tour is now over (as well as their times together) and I bring you my own report from the 3 tour dates I’ve attended. Hit more for tons of photos, videos and my report.
