Savages to release live EP, curate Pop Noire nights

By | Published on Friday 28 March 2014


Hi. Profoundly serious ‘noir’ punks Savages will soon unleash a two-song live EP, captured on-site at a show the band did at the Forum in London last November. Out on vinyl on 5 May, it’ll include on one side the live-only ‘Fuckers’, which goes on for over ten minutes, and on the other a cover of Suicide’s ‘Dream Baby Dream’.

On the same day the disc is released, 5 May, Savages will curate one of their Pop Noire nights at the Shacklewell Arms in London, this featuring guitarist Gemma Thompson playing solo, plus A Dead Forest Index and CMU approved Japanese band ZZZs. A show the following night, at Birthdays, will commemorate a year to the day that Savages first and only LP, ‘Silence Yourself’, came to light, and will play host to live act Le Vasco and a DJ set by the band’s lead singer Jehnny Beth.

Give a look over for all the info.
