Westword has a review of the new Savage Republic live album, along with some shade for people whose 80s alternative library is limited to a couple of tee-shirt bands. Africa Corps Live At The Whisky A Go-Go 30th December 1981 is “noisy, minimalist, and percussive as hell. The guitar melodies are reminiscent of East Bay Ray’s spacey surf-music contributions to records such as Dead Kennedys’ Plastic Surgery Disasters, and the band’s strategic use of repetition imparts a hypnotic vibe to the songs. The album, available through Independent Project Records, offers a look into the post-punk of the early 1980s. It should appeal to people who want to expand their palate beyond Joy Division and the Cure.” Read more here.
