Boys Keep Swinging

Boys Keep Swinging

Spring is in the air here in Chicago so it is only natural to start thinking about Record Store Day, right? On April 17th, to coincide with Record Store Day, Mr. Russia will release their first 7” single, and give it away for free with any purchase at all three Reckless Records locations. The single will feature two different versions of the David Bowie track “Boys Keep Swinging”. It’s an anthem for all the boys out there. “Boys keeps swinging because boys always work it out” the band shouts in their best dirty barroom vocals, as the gritty guitars whale along. The track has this swagger that makes you proud to be a boy.

Mr. Russia will be performing at The Beat Kitchen on April 17th to celebrate the release of the single and Record Store Day. If you haven’t downloaded Mr. Russia’s free ep Training For The Gameshow Host from last year you can still do that here. “Wild World” appeared on their debut album Teething, which was released in Feb. 2009.
