Mr Russia

Mr Russia is a garage rock band from Chicago, Illinois on Lens Records. Excluding guitar from the bands instrumentation, Mr Russia has a unique sound notably drawing inspiration from Bob Haggart’s Big Noise From Winnetka. Mr Russia has been compared to modern guitar free band Death from Above 1979, as well as hard-to-pinpoint sources such as XTC and Magazine.

Mr Russia have shared the stage with The Reverend Horton Heat, Girl in a Coma, Von Iva, Thrones, Two Ton Boa, 31 Knots, Earl Greyhound, The Prairie Cartel and Chewing Pics (featuring Naima Mora). They have also toured on their own gaining a respectful following.
