The Neo-Kalashnikovs are a staunchly rock 'n' roll band from Auckland City, New Zealand. Over the past few years they have been musically based in Los Angeles, California. Since being formed in 2007 by siblings Volita Pearl (singer/guitar) and Moss Bioletti (drums) the band with a rotation of different bassists has slowly but surely cultivated an underground following with their melodic intellectual rock sound. The Neos sight The Stooges, Kasabian, Blur and Autolux among some of their influences as well as 90s grunge rock and Charles Bukowski. They are currently back in New Zealand recording their debut album "She's on Heat" and will be joined by their younger sibling Gabriel Bioletti on bass.
Revolution spoke directly with drummer Moss Bioletti from his home in Auckland City to talk about their new album and what's hot in kiwi land.
R. You Kiwis have a strong sense of music. In the past we were all blown away by the infamous Spilt Enz/Crowded House collaborative forces of the Finn brothers, what can the rest of the world expect to hear from you?
