Nashville’s Amanda Sudano and Abner Ramirez – the new She & Him?
The Savages at Soap Creek Saloon in 1984.
Formed on a lark in the early days of the Ford Administration, the Uranium Savages are Austin’s genre-hopping, raspberry-inflected answer to the Bonzo Dog Band. As house band at the Soap Creek Saloon, they once appeared in the pages of OUI sporting giant prosthetic penises. Though saying so doesn’t behoove a band that proclaims themselves “too dumb to die,” their inspired irreverence and spectacular stagecraft are key strands in the city’s cultural fabric. The Savages’ fealty to filth and foolishness remain steadfast on their latest, Savage Country. – Greg Beets
