Raissa

Chris Roberts, Uncut, March 2000

RAISSA, WHOSE seductive single, 'How Long Do I Get', is currently raising a rumpus, spent Christmas swimming in the Red Sea. She's travelled before. She began her musical career at an early age, busking her way across Poland, Czechoslovakia, and Berlin "before the Wall came down. I wanted adventure, to see the world. I mean, I was a kid", Before she knew it, she had a Hungarian manager, "who drove a dodgy limo and got me bizarre basement party gigs. They were excited by all things Western, basically."
