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 …

Articles for ‘Akzia’

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

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 …

Finale Aloud: Ten The Hits Tour 2013

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.

Sound of the adolescence

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

There are many reasons why Girls Aloud’s split is horrible news. There are also tons of reasons behind the decision and, let’s face it, it lasted way longer than any of us ever dreamt (and also recently gave us at least two pop diamonds  – ‘Something New’ and ‘On the Metro’). But right now I don’t want to talk about how they literally changed the face of modern pop music or how incredibly well girls’ personalities blended with Xenomania’s state-of-art …

Interview with Amelia Lily

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

I was very pleased to know that Amelia Lily was coming to Moscow for the Valentine’s Day – it’s not that often that we get a rising popstar over here plus I liked both of her Xenomania-produced singles a lot. At the time of the interview it was not yet revealed that Amelia would serve as a supporting act to the upcoming Girls Aloud tour (which made total sense!). So eventually I saw Amelia three more times on the stage …
