I think this was 1998? Could’ve been the year before when they played here in May. My memory is hazy here. We saw them at Reading Festival 1997 and we were going to see them at Breeze Festival in Leeds in 1998 but we left before they came on as the festival was a shambles.
Here’s one I posted on the Burning Up Time forums which I stumbled upon – Don’t think Savages had played many gigs at this point and I also don’t think they had any material out.
It’s not very often I’d drag myself along to a gig for a band that I know fewer than 3 songs for (which is not as bad as it sounds as the band have yet to release their first album). But last night I’m glad I did.
