My rock star husband couldn’t resist starting a band over here in Bishkek, so he and three other expats (two Americans and a Swede) formed Plov for Two. (I think the name started as a joke, and as they have yet to come up with something they like better, it has officially stuck). They played a set of mostly covers for a friend’s going-away party a while ago, but they had their public debut a few weeks ago at a club called Globass. (Yes, that’s really what it’s called, I don’t get it.) They had many more originals to play for their set and everybody seemed to really enjoy themselves. Personally, I think this performance was much improved over their first one.
Farrell describes their music as “garage rock”. To me, it’s just loud. Further evidence of that can be seen and heard here, a video of them performing a cover of Beastie Boys’ “Sabotage”. I’m warning you now, turn down your speakers.
