Cocaine Piss + Savak
18. Juni 2019, 20:00
You can’t start a band called Cocaine Piss and be serious at the same time, can you? It would be the equivalent of naming your kid something like Kick Me In The Head Throughout Life Whenever Possible Smith. It’s not exactly the best commercial boost to a new thing. But ever since coming into twisted existence in 2014 in the Belgian city of Liège, pretty much as a bad taste joke, Cocaine Piss never really had time to consider such fine details, like having a band name that you can safely say in public, or just having any kind of plan for anything. They just revved the engine of the piss rocket and watched it launch, and before they knew it, it was flying sky-high.
Beg Your Pardon is the third album in as many years from Brooklyn-based rock’n’roll band Savak, formed in 2015 by members of The Obits, Holy Fuck, The Cops and Nation of Ulysses.
The new album follows a compelling progression from their past releases – equally the most punk rock and sublime record in their repertoire. Beg Your Pardon features everything from noisy careeners and ’80s hardcore nods to slightly glammy stompers and straight-up, New Zealand-inspired, guitar-pop songs (and that´s just in the first 10 minutes of side one).
The band recorded and produced Beg Your Pardon themselves in their Gowanus practice space and then handed off the songs to Mikey Young (Royal Headache, Kelley Stoltz), Geoff Sanoff (Nada Surf, Luna), Ed Ackerson (The Jayhawks, John Wesley Harding) and Matthew Barnhart (Superchunk, METZ) to mix.
