RIYL: The Dandy Warhols, Super Furry Animals, Brian Jonestown Massacre
The Savage Family Band, it has been said, is more of a family than a band. Their first outing, and debut self-titled LP, is a masterful array of truly groovy Cosmic American Music with conjures all the folk, country, rock and roll and punk and psychedelia that define the art form.
A loose collective of All-Star Portland music scene veterans led by Mr. Savage, The Savage Family Band is bonded by decades-deep friendships, musical relationships and artistic inclinations intuitively attuned to Chad’s lysergic folk punk vision.Â
“A wonderful sense of community holds us together.” says Mr. Savage.Â “We take care of each other.”
The family includes quite a few big names in Portland’s musicÂ community.Â Paul Pulvirente (Eyelids/Elliott Smith), Christopher Bernard Cook (1776), Sam Henry (The Wipers/ Napalm Beach), William Morisey Slater (Grails), Lance Dinauer, Colin Jarrell (Long Knife/ The Nice Boys /The Riffs), Collin Hegna (The Brian Jonestown Massacre/ Federale), Paul Dillon (Mercury Rev/ Sparkle Horse), Sarah Jane Dillon (The Out Crowd) just to name a few.Â Mr. Savage’s vocalsÂ evoke the warmÂ raspÂ of Up-era Michael Stipe, the perfect cherry on top of this wealth of talent.
