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.¬†
“A wonderful sense of community holds us together.” says Mr. Savage.¬†“We take care of each other.”
The family includes quite a few big names in Portland’s music¬†community.¬† 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.¬† Mr. Savage’s vocals¬†evoke the warm¬†rasp¬† of Up-era Michael Stipe, the perfect cherry on top of this wealth of talent.
