SAVAK - Beg Your Pardon

Label: Ernst Jenning / Taken By Surprise / Bang / Geenger / Orangeire
Year: 2018

From the "Oops, I Forgot To Listen To This Last Year" file, comes an incredibly well conceived, performed, and delivered package of twelve post punk informed indie rockers. Punchy, nervy, scrappy, loose, garage rocky, type post punk indie rockers. Not unlike something Les Savy Fav might come up with?
The core band is Sohrab Habibion (Edsel, Obits), Matt Schultz (Lab Partners, Enon, Holy Fuck), and Michael Jaworski (Puberty, The Cops, Virgin Island), but they get help from a cast of characters that include members of Snakes, SOA, One Last Wish, Embrace, Faith, Don Caballero, Bellini, Nation Of Ulysses, All Scars, Ted Leo + The Pharmacists, Girls Against Boys, Soulside, Monsterland, Bunny Brains, Garden Variety, Radio 4, Obits, Edsel, Silent Majority, New Wet Kojack, and a million others but I'm running out of steam. Point is, soak that roster in. It represents a lot of really great, adventurous, groundbreaking records...and if those dudes are co-signing SAVAK...what's you're deal? You're all of a sudden somehow better than a guy who was in fucking State Of Alert?!
