MORE ABOUT THE DAILY PRAVDA
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 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 are current recording their debut EP with producer Pedro Garcia (Evanescence), planning on a late spring release date. Until then, catch them live — occasionally dressing in drag and spreading Britpop propaganda for the people.
