Tag Archives: Forward Russia!

Yes indeed, it is less than a week until the Leeds and Reading Festivals kick off. The New Sound. will be attending the Leeds Festival and we cannot wait! From Friday to Sunday, hundreds of good bands will be playing the festival, including a handful of really awesome ones like Rage Against The Machine, Bloc Party and Queens of the Stone Age, to name a few.

Of course, for Leeds attendees, the music starts a day early with a handful of bands from the superb Leeds-based record label Dance To The Radio playing, including the brilliant Grammatics. Last year Dance To The Radio brought the likes of now-defunct Shut Your Eyes And You’ll Burst Into Flames, Sky Larkin and Grammatics to support ¬°Forward, Russia! and they were all superb (except The Wallbirds who were really boring).

If you’re going to Leeds (or Reading), have a great time! I know we will!


I found a video of an iForward, Russia! set on and it’s well worth watching. A fantastic live band right there. Go onto Fabchannel and click “Concerts”, then “Forward Russia!” Or click Here!

Also, Fabchannel is a very good site, with lots of live sets of bands that have played at the Amsterdam Paradiso. You can also find sets by Jimmy Eat World, Bloc Party, and hundreds of other great bands that I won’t bother listing.

Here’s the iForward, Russia! set:

  1. Thirteen
  2. Don’t Reinvent What You Don’t Understand
  3. Don’t Be A Doctor
  4. Twelve
  5. Gravity & Heat
  6. Nine
  7. Spanish Triangles

Enjoy. x
