10,000 Russos, Is Bliss, Thee Rag N Bone Man
R&R Concerts Proudly Presents…
One of the biggest surprises of the new psych scene were a band from the outskirts of Europe, compromising elements of savage repetition rituals who can take Neu! and Suicide in equal measurements and are known for non stop shows who can lead people to a spiritual trance.
They are 10 000 Russos and they hail from Porto, Portugal. The idea is not being a rock band, the idea is to kill that idea and do songs that take elements of rock n roll, give them a total desconstruction and create something really new. Something that goes fighting any idea of what a band should be: the drones of the bass embrace you, the guitar makes sonic landscapes and refuses the riff, the drummer goes motorik and he is also the singer. There is no bullshit talk between songs.
Signed to Fuzz Club Records and with the first record being sold out in the first edition in just one month. More than 87 shows around 3 european tours in one single year. Presence in the biggest festivals of the scene likeLiverpool International Festival Of Psychedelia, Eindhoven Psych Lab,DesertFest Berlin, Copenhagen Psych Fest and Fuzz Club Fest London.

Support comes from Portsmouth based Is Bliss have hooked up with Club AC30 for a new EP, and it tightens their noise pop aesthetic still further. The hooks feel more defined, while the production applied renewed clarity with Is Bliss displaying continuing confidence in their sound. Their new EP ‘The Honeycomb Explosion’ arrives on May 19th.
Thee Rag n Bone Man is a one man band from the bowels of Scotland. His primitive brutal trash blues is like the unwanted son of Charley Patton, The Dwarfs, and Crass. Amped up screaming slide guitar and howling fuzzed up harmonica riffs give way to punk/blues rock n roll madness.
