Standells support Russian punk rock group Pussy Riot

The Standells are known as the originators of garage / punk rock. With it comes a huge obligation to support those who follow in our footsteps. We must defend the rights of artists to speak out in protest, such as the Moscow female punk rock group Pussy Riot did, after performing an anti-Putin song. We join Sting, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, and other rock groups in expressing our outrage at their arrest and five month confinement behind bars, without trial in Moscow. To us, it sounds very much like a return of the cold war days of Khrushchev.
