Let’s start with a little quiz: Which country do you think the band Russkaja comes from? Exactly, not Russia. With their birthplace marked as Vienna, Austria, this band claims to make polka rock. Yet when I listen to it a couple of times and give it some thought, this band’s product sounds like ska. Why would a rock and metal label like Napalm Records sign a band like this? Maybe their new album ‘Peace, Love & Russian Roll’ gives us the answer.
My, oh my, this is a band that had the biggest kickstart of all the bands out there. In 2008 and 2009 The Answer has opened the shows of AC/DC on their Black Ice World Tour. So they traveled the entire world with one of the most renowned rock bands of all. And here they are, six years later, with their fifth album ‘Raise A Little Hell’.
