The Neo-Kalashnikovs Interview on U.K Music Blog: RealSoundsOK

Your name: 
Moss Bioletti, I’m the drummer of The Neo-Kalashnikovs.

Where are you from?
Auckland city, New Zealand.

Name of band:
The Neo-Kalashnikovs.  Who else is in your band?
There's three of us, we are all siblings. My sis Volita Pearl is the singer and guitarist and my brother Gabe is on bass.

How would you describe yourselves?
Who are your main influences musically?
Iggy Pop and The Stooges, Arctic Monkeys, Queens of the Stone Age, The Kills, Band of Skulls, Blondie, Joan Jet and The Killers to name some out of a billion.
What do you hope to achieve in music?
That Beatle status, raging success and mounds of money. I aim to sell 50 records then 100 records then 1,000, all the way up to a million.
What has been the highlight of your career so far, and why?
Finishing our first album and getting a great reaction. Putting yourself and music out there is a thrill and humbling if people actually like it. Getting 2000 downloads so far has been a real buzz.
What’s the moment you want to forget?
Being lost in downtown in LA walking ominously close to skid row and thinking about grabbing a box and sleeping in it. No jokes.
If you could choose just one of your songs to represent your music, what would it be and why?
Diamonds because it’s rough and tumble indie rock n roll.
Where can we listen to it?
Here is the free instant download link of our album She’s On Heat  and you can listen to it, get it for free or buy it you wanna show some love on bandcamp:
Where can we find out more about your music?

Our official website:
Anything else you’d like to say about your band that I forgot to ask?
People ask us a lot why we gave our album away for free and I want to give an official answer. Before I released the album as a free instant download it was just sitting on my hard-drive. I thought to myself I really wanted people to hear my music and become fans, so I let everyone enjoy it for free. I'm going to finish up five albums this year and give them all away for free to our fans. Once we hit the 20,000 download mark it might be wise to start charging lol but that's not far away. The Neo-Kalashnikovs will be playing heaps of gigs to show everyone we mean business and make sure we get our sponsorship deals.
