The boys in the newsroom never do anything halfway. The Daily Pravda startle us into attention with the line "She's addicted to meat," and then
they're off with a tale of a deranged debutante who straddles a dangerously hedonistic line while keeping daddy safely nearby. 

Think Paris Hilton as a vampire. Swirl in the T-Rex/Bowie psycho-glam rock that suits this story so well, add in a musical interlude reminiscent of the Doors' experimentation, and just let yourself get pulled under. 

Frontman David Jackel has a voice that flows from petulant rich kid with damaged brain cells of his own to a dangerously seductive high croon.  The band is tight, with relentlessly powerful guitar and percussion driving the song while showering you in glitter, slipping you a sample of pills, and leaving streaks of blood in their wake.  Gritty, yet oh so trippy and addictive.

If Morrissey had gone to Moscow in 1989 instead of Ozzy Osbourne, The Daily Pravda might have existed much sooner. Sixteen years after a golden opportunity for vodka-fueled glam to flourish, David Jackel (formerly of The Crush) posted an ad in Boston that simply said, "Singer on a mission to do to Ziggy Stardust what Oasis did to the Beatles. Needs backup."

Backup came in the form of Ken Marcou (drummer) from Silverthree Sound Recording's band Kimone, Joshh Magee (bass) who was formerly in a Smiths cover band, and Adam Anderson (guitar), a diehard KISS fan with a penchant for seventies sci-fi sounds.

Late last year the band headed south to Bangor, PA to rehearse, write and record a demo. The first track, "She’s So Mature," came out last fall and radio responded. The Daily Pravda was the FNX spotlight band of the week, putting "She’s So Mature" in heavy rotation.

The Daily Pravda set to work on their debut EP, tracking at Boston’s famous Blue Jay Studio. After switching producers, TDP completed the EP in July 2006, with a September 8, 2006 release date.

In July 2006 Magee parted amicably with the band and was replaced by Lindsey Starr (Retrosleeper), who covers both bass and backing vocals.

Catch The Daily Pravda live throughout the Northeast — occasionally dressing in drag and spreading Britpop propaganda for the people.
