SAVAGES Silence Yourself (Pop Noire)
Savages showed much early promise with their Flying To Berlin single, and the album shows that that was not just a flash in the pan. Spikey indie guitar-pop is the order of the day, with a liberal helping of Siouxsie-style vocal inflections. Shut Up and Hit Me are not only great tracks, but also emphasis that this band will take no shit from anyone. Classic Wire/Banshees influenced indie.
