“Let’s Go Outside!” – new video by Tarakany! from Russia


Russian punk pioneers Tarakany! are debuting their new music video for “Let’s Go Outside!”. This is the second video the band has released in the past few weeks; they recently released a live video for “God and Police”, which features Chris Barker from Anti-Flag.

This is one of the most upbeat singles from the band’s album MaximumHappy, here which has topped the national rock charts in record time.

Even though the song is in Russian, you don’t need to be a linguist to understand it. The title, taken from the chorus, says it all. The lyrics refer to “virtual suicide”, where people are trading social interaction for social networks. It’s a call to log off, power down, disconnect, and go back to the real world.

The video’s final scene was filmed during Moscow’s City Day celebration on Bolotnaya Square, where Tarakany! headlined the Metro On Stage 2014 festival in front of 15,000 people.

About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
