Album Review
Reviewed 2005-02-03
Russian Rokenrol Revolution! Shake all your hipster cynicism. All of it! Take off that trucker hat – god, you’re so 2004. HAVE SOME FUN. The Red Elvises are Siberian ex-pats living in LA doing old style rock, rockabilly and surf with silly, fun lyrics and un-ashamed Russian accent. If you haven’t seen an entire venue full of people dancing in a show in SF (not nodding their heads – really dancing) – you haven’t seen the RE’s live. Guitars, a 4-foot wide red balalaika, brass, grand synths sound… those guys lash it all out in the solos, check it out: 2, 3, 4, 9 (FCC: 2, 9, make a call on 4).

1. Sound recording: ocean, seagulls.
2. *FCC ("Bullshit") Bouncy, silly, fun! *
3. * Mid/up tempo, long instrument solos at the end. *
4. ** Upbeat piano hoochie-koochie rocking blues, FCC-borderline ("I've got a condom in my pocket… gonna find me pretty girl") check out Pink Floyd homage. Hilarious. **
5. Sound recording: Wind
6. Silly winter reggae.
7. Dramatic, breakup song, surfy, big, trumpets, upbeat, Japanese… ha…
8. Quiet, slow, accordions, violin, Parisian/Eastern Europe cabaret, the sad sorry of a Phuket Geisha…
9. * FCC("Fuck", repeated) Mid tempo: this is the most hilarious indie-rock spoof I have ever heard. *
10. Mid tempo surfy.
11. mid tempo.
12. Sax, tacky, islands, tiki. Party song if there ever was one.
13. Sound recording: the woods.
