Ru: We arrived at a run-down industrial estate complete with decrepit, crumbling walls and broken glass over the steps for our first Bishkek radio interview. Ushered through what looked very much like a prison door, we crowded into the groaning lift and were transported to the wholesome, sunny world of Bishkek OK radio. Run by American ex-pat Wes, a lovely man who’s been here with his wife for 17 years, he’s been broadcasting the English language station to the city for most of that time, playing an ‘everyone’s invited’ mixture of classical, jazz and rock to the masses. We did a short interview about the tour, where we came from and gave him an exclusive first – a rendition of our new song, Honey Goliath on acoustic guitar. Plugging the rest of our gigs in Bishkek (see our previous post) to the world, we speedily ran off to soundcheck our next gig at the Pulse club.
