The Riots
Truncheons, Shields and Size 10 Boots

Released: 27th July 2012
Label: Copase Disques

‘Truncheons, Shields and Size 10 Boots’ is the latest single from Moscow based band The Riots. The Russian music scene is not something that I have followed closely over the years, but listening to this single has hugely increased my interest.

This single has a very British sound which took me by surprise, this is a band who have been clearly influenced by The Clash and The Jam. You really could be forgiven if you thought you were listen to a record from 1970’s Britain.

The song opens with a powerful guitar riff to grab your attention, the song continues for three minutes with a funky rhythm, strong vocals, all played by a band who clearly believe in what they are doing.

The Riots could well be the band for the next generation of Mods to believe in.

‘Truncheons, Shields and Size 10 boots is available as a limited edition 7” or as a download.
