Russian indie pioneers Blast Unit Moscow, dubbed the Godfathers of Vladrock, prepare to release the forthcoming single "Rollercoaster Ride", as the band's lead singer warns there's much more to come from Russia and Eastern Europe, and talks politics, production and Pussy Riot.
Nicknames are banded around in music more than any other industry, but 'Godfathers of Vladrock' is probably one you've never heard before.
Even though they're Russian the band sings in English.
But that hasn't stopped their popularity soaring.
Tavkhelidze says he and his band mates are just the tip of the iceberg, and they might just have the UK to thank.
Blast Unit Moscow are due to gig in the UK in September.
'Rollercoaster Ride' is out August 12.
