2 reviews. Add your own review.
Its a bit daring Savages calling their new EP ‘Fuckers’ when the average age of their fanbase is about 12. Look away now, children.
This is recorded live somewhere or other. ‘Fuckers’ begins in a moody kind of style and threatens to be ruined by an ill-timed whoop from a particularly excitable audience member. Eventually the drums kick in and some rather massive guitars come into play and the whole thing explodes into life. A big churning sprawling mess of a thing and I’m sure that if, God forbid, I was in attendance I may have swayed slightly to its pulverising grooves.
On the flip they do the millionth cover of Suicide’s ‘Dream Baby Dream’, is the singer German? She sounds German when she introduces it to no applause whatsoever apart from a lone whoop probably from someones grandma who recognises Alan Vega’s name from their youthful exploits. It probably differs from the Bruce Springsteen version that it explodes into cacophonic noise, literally lifting the roof off the auditorium.
7/10 PHIL Customer review, 19th August 2014
Darn this hits hard. No surprises really, both the name of the song and the band kinda prep you for a bit of a bashing at least, but this is rough. It starts all softy, creepy, I-have-a-knife-and-you-can't-see-me-coming-behind-you before ripping back the shower curtain and repeatedly stabbing you to death with a drum beat of Ministry of Sound or some nonsense rave stuff proportions. It's fantastic, you wanna beat someone up a little bit, maybe loot a JD Sports.
In fact it's a bit like an art-house Sleaford Mods.
Now, I say that as a big fan of the Sleaford lads, I've got the debut lp upstairs and it gets more than a few twirls on the old player. But the same bile, energy and bitterness comes through from Savages on "Fuckers" but with the feeling that Savages fit into Warhol's Factory and the Mods are more at home gigging in Leeds Working Man's Club.
Both are bloody brilliant.
