This week Savages, the Quietus' favourite new group, made an excursion to Salford to play inside a wooden cage at a sinister-sounding venue called The Fuhrer Bunker. Our writer John Freeman said "The whole thing was utterly, utterly incredible. Just sayin'..." and you can read a live review over at Louder Than War. At the gig Savages debuted a brand new song called 'Shut Up'. Introducing it, singer Jehnny Beth says "we don't even know how it goes so we're going to figure it out with you. So I need lyrics because I can't remember them." Nevertheless, it's a corker, mid-paced and moody with killer industrial Bernard Butler guitar and typically excellent bass rumble. On May 29th 2012 us, The Stool Pigeon and 5000 are putting on Savages at the Shacklewell Arms. You can buy tickets here.
