Biography

MOSCOW SCHOOLBOY'S latest recording, their much-anticipated six-song CD Black Dogs,
was recorded and mixed by producer Tim Johnston. Tim was chosen for his work with Nick Cave & the Badseeds, Dallas Crane, Even, and Tex Perkins.

This recording sees Moscow Schoolboy exploring a new, darker territory, with instrumentation including Rhodes, Hammond Organ and acoustic piano replacing the synth sounds of previous recordings. The songs retain their danceable edge but with more attention to detail in the jagged, layered electric guitars and expansive rhythm section.
The themes of Black Dogs swing between envy, madness and lust, Jess’s distinct vocals giving the songs suprising vibrancy and energy.

This will be the second release from MOSCOW SCHOOLBOY, who’s debut EP My Sister And The Devil created a buzz when it was released through Silent Partner/Inertia earlier this year. My Sister And The Devil produced the single Use Me Back, which was added to rotation on both Triple J and Sydney’s Fbi fm, and also I Like Your Head which aired regularly on Melbourne’s Triple R and Brisbane’s 4zzz.

Triple J’s magazine ‘Jmag’ also featured Moscow Schoolboy in the Home And Hosed ‘What’s Hot Right Now’ section of their Winter issue, and J TV (ABC) have filmed a segment on Moscow Schoolboy, detailing their compositions for ‘The Band’. This is an underground erotic art film, being made by Hungry Films and shot in Melbourne. Moscow Schoolboy are also providing tracks off ‘My Sister And the Devil’ for use in the film’s soundtrack.
Moscow Schoolboy have played shows with Infadels (UK), Faker, Bit By Bats, Midnight Juggernauts, The Vasco Era, Expatriate and Damn Arms.
