A brief history lesson. Russian Love was a great band from the northern part of Finland. Their early gothic rock isn’t my cup of tea at all, but in the mid-90’s they were one of the best bands in the country and gave birth to some fantastic indie rock / power pop albums. Especially Gala Brutale is a magnificent album and regarded as a classic (at least in my heart). They vanished around 1998 and I’ve been missing them ever since. Now twelve years later, Russian Love’s last recorded single Never Say Goodbye have seen the light of the day. It’s available at least on iTunes and on Spotify. I hope there are more treasures in the vaults, because this is a fantastic song.
