Savages - City's Full

And hello to you too, Jehnny. The taut, visceral behemoth that is Savages live, all black clothes, thousand yard stares and strobe lighting for effect, is quite the thing but with only two properly recorded tracks to their name there's been a temptation to think they're coming a bit far a bit quickly. Well, they've been thinking of us all along - the I Am Here EP, out 30th September, is four tracks recorded live on their July tour with Palma Violets (who'll have to do a lot better if they're ever going to be featured on STN). Here there's blasts of serrated guitar noise, tripwire post-punk bass and Ms Beth making like Poly Styrene with braces removed and bodily pressed up against a jagged wall.
