Band goes to school
A trio of Mt Albert’s self-professed indie rock troublemakers are heading back to the classroom.
The Neo-Kalashnikovs, made up of siblings Volita, Gabriel and Moss Bioletti, formed in 2007.
They are hoping to inspire young people by performing at schools around the country.
‘‘We really love the kids that listen to our music and give us so much support.
‘‘What better way is there for us to say thanks than to rock out with them at their schools,’’ Moss says.
In April, the band will perform at schools across the country, including Auckland Girls Grammar, Epsom Girls Grammar and Western Springs College.
After time spent recording in LA, the trio decided to finish their debut album She’s On Heat in Pt Chevalier.
The album is now available free to download.
it’s instant, it’s in your face and it’s on your stereo,’’ Moss says.
They have had 1100 downloads so far and, with plans to make their next three albums available as free instant downloads as well, hope to reach the 20,000 downloads mark.
