From Indie Bohemians:

Svetlanas are an Italian punk band that tours the world relentlessly. Their front-woman, Olga, was banned from Russia. We talk about why (hint: it has something to do with that whole no free speech thing a la Pussy Riot). This interview was conducted in downtown Los Angeles after their show outside of the venue. At one point it is broken up by a police officer. Hear Ron negotiate with law enforcement!

More about the band:
The most dangerous band in the world.
-Dying Scene

I swear to God their approach to music is still gross and strong like a Vodka shot
-Malcom McLaren

Also in this episode, Ron Placone talks about the experience of seeing the band and Angie Dorin rocks a Monkey Minute.
