  • Where Is Parker Griggs? is a collection of songs from the Alive Naturalsound label, with EXCLUSIVE MATERIAL by HACIENDA, RADIO MOSCOW, BUFFALO KILLERS, BLACK DIAMOND HEAVIES and more. This compilation showcases the many facets of this respected L.A. based indie imprint, founded by Patrick Boissel 17 years ago. From garage rock, psych, punk, deep blues and Tejas garage-soul, Where Is Parker Griggs? is an impressive overview of some of the new blood currently pumping through Alive – the first label to have the taste and insight to sign not only The Black Keys and Two Gallants, but all of the remarkable acts on this collection (not to mention many others). This album also features an early preview from Alive’s latest signing, the rootsy psyouthern soul of Birmingham, AL rock quartet LEE BAINS III & THE GLORY FIRES, whose full-length debut lands April 2012.

    Where Is Parker Griggs? will be released January 10th as a 180 GRAM VINYL Ltd. Edition and Digital download, the latter which also features two additional bonus tracks from LEFT LANE CRUISER and THE BLOODY HOLLIES.

    So where exactly is Radio Moscow’s singer, guitarist and creative fountainhead, Parker Griggs? Actually, we don’t have a clue. But we do know that in January he’ll be out on the road fronting Radio Moscow for a handful of explosive Midwest shows in support of their latest Alive album, THE GREAT ESCAPE OF LESLIE MAGNAFUZZ. The northern California (by way of central Iowa) trio will then be teaming up with Swedish hard-rockers GRAVEYARD for a coast-to-coast winter tour. You can pin Parker down in one of the cities below as part of this super-heavy, mind-bending double bill!

  • REVIEWS

    • "Face it, we need Rock. For many that means digging through back catalogs to satisfy that need. If that describes you, before you listen to "Whole Lotta Love" for the 40, 000th time, humor me and check out the incredible Alive Records compilation 'Where is Parker Griggs?' Rock is alive and well, people. There are real gems on this. "The Stranger" by Radio Moscow sounds like an unreleased track from "Exile on Main St." Buffalo Killers is a band that rocks while not losing their sense of melody as so many do, really check out the vocals on their selections here....and if you want to hear additional great sounds, explore Hacienda. Hacienda sounds like strong Pop music being played through a Marshall stack, loud. Sold yet? If you still need icing on the pound cake, get this...this compilation is being released on vinyl too. Here's to the good new days."

      Christopher Levine - ECLECTIBLOGS

    • "Highly recommended for fans of boogie rock and the heavy blues sound."

      SLUG MAGAZINE

    • "A terrific compilation!"

      WHEN YOU MOTOR AWAY

    • "Radio Moscow and nine Alive label-mates contribute a dozen previously unreleased tracks to produce a compilation that’s pure classic rock. The album is full of tinny mics and three-chord blues riffs, with the two tracks from Hacienda being the highest points."

      DES MOINES CITYVIEW

    • "Over the past three years it has undoubtedly become one of our favourite labels and we have posted many times about the bands on their roster including Henry’s Funeral Shoe, Gardens and White Noise Sound. Founded by Patrick Boissel 17 years ago the label specialises in garage rock, psych, punk, deep blues and Tejas garage-soul and were the first label to sign The Black Keys and Two Gallants. Where Is Parker Griggs? is an impressive overview of some of the new blood currently pumping through Alive and also features an early preview from Alive’s latest signing, the rootsy psyouthern soul of Birmingham, Alabama rock quartet Lee Bains & The Glory Fires, whose full-length debut lands April 2012."
