Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin

Philip Dickey scratches his head. He is sceptical about playing in the doner shop where some Turkish men are having their Ramadan-supper. “I don’t want these guys to make fun of us. I mean, they are wearing leather jackets and have motorcycle helmets,” Philip expounds. After some contemplation Philip and his bandmate Will Knauer take the risk and play the mellifluous “Modern Mystery”, while having a cup of candied black tea. Their songtitle “I Am Warm and Powerful” perhaps best describes what Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin sounds like. The Springfield-based band indulges both in sensitivity and buoyancy. Since the release of their debut album in 2005, the four Missourians have been boostered by a buzz from music blogs. As the bikers left the eatery, Will and Phil started their musical charm offensive; however the question remains unsolved whether those tough wretchs would have been pleased about the cautious milksops’ performance.
