some information on the WHITE SAVAGE & BLANK DOGS singles...
WHITE SAVAGE 7"- HZR-004 Destroy Your Style b/w Orphans (Teenage Jesus &
The Jerks) "Blood Tour Edition" of 400 copies with Red Sleeve on Red Vinyl
Making Chicago's 'Now Wave' sound like 'Then Wave' and strangling any
admirers along the way, this is one slice of rudeness and animosity that
you surely cannot afford to miss out on. Forming from black visions of
white noise guranteed to solve race relations and eradicate gray areas of
thought in every form, WHITE SAVAGE are not here for your amusement, but
only for their own.
"Quite the pedigree on this beast: Hollywood from Tyrades, Jered from
Ponys, Colin from Screaming Yellow Zonkers (lawsuit pending), some dude
from Chin Up Chin Up, even a guy from post-rockers, Euphone. None of this
really matters though when you put the needle on the record. "Destroy Your
Style" is blistering tribal-punk intent on ruining your day, but it won't;
unless you have shitty taste in music. You could dance to this mess of
animal howling, trumpet bleats, and rolling drums, no prob. The flip has
one those Tyrade-style covers where they would essentially turn a cover
into their own song. I really dig that song-as-launching-pad formula, and
here White Savage picks Teenage Jesus and The Jerks' classic "Orphans"
(which originally was a kind of tribute to Yoko Ono's "Don't Worry Kyoto,
Mommy's Only Looking For Her Hand in The Snow"). With its disco bass line,
angular guitars, dive-bombing electronics, and paranoid vocals, White
Savage is actually sounding a lot like early Liars, which is not a bad
thing to me, and shouldn't be to you either..." EEK Terminal Boredom
BLANK DOGS 7" EP - HZR-005 Yellow Mice Sleep b/w Housefly + Smashed Up
People "Infuriating Matte" color sleeve Red Vinyl edtion of 400 copies
Unknown and unloved by this rotten world, Blank Dogs offer cheerfully
apocalyptic lullabyes to pacify even the most hardened criminals, all
without ever showing their faces. We still don't know who they are, or
what they look like, but sometimes the music is so good, it really doesn't
matter. Glue Wave goth-pop or Devo-toned noise nervosa, it all comes
together so well that you'll be crying in your soup if you don't jump on
this train before it leaves town forever. Three songs of disconsolate
despair, destined to stick in your mind until your inevitable demise,
including the hit "Yellow Mice Sleep," anonymity has never been so
"Spankin new 45 by our mysterious friend, and it's even better than the
12. "Yellow Mice Sleep" betrays its creator's fond feelings towards My
Bloody Valentine and Jesus and Mary Chain with its dreamy melody and
thick, soupy guitar-bed. "Housefly" quivers and disturbs, while "Smashed
Up People" is Mr. Blank Dog's best song yet, stuffing a catchy chorus into
what sounds like a demo version of a Chairs Missing cut. Better jump on
board, there's another 12" comin down the pipe!" -EEK Terminal Boredom
