Biography

Les Savy Fav has, for the most part, remained a word-of-show, fanatical-fan-driven band. They have done it on their own, in the old-fashioned way, touring and making music. They aren't too cool for any school. They answer their own e-mails. They have maintained their independence and have built their consistently sold-out-show following without the championing of a major label, mainstream ... Read more in Amazon's Les Savy Fav Store

Les Savy Fav are your classic art rock, New York band. Their musical roots can be traced from 1967 and the first release from Velvet Underground. But are they just another band hitchin' a ride on the art rock waves? The answer, I don't care. Any band that manages to combine experimental with loud like in "Wake up!", yet contrast such tracks with melodic songs like "Roadside Memorial". The whole album takes you on a journey of sonicyouthian proportions. The only criticism of the album would be the lack of variation in the singing of Tim Harrison which I know is there. Oh yeah, no chance of you coming to play in Bognor?

I went to see Les Savy Fav play at a local bar and bought this album immediately after seeing them. Experiencing them live is better than listening to them in the company of your own home, but when I say that, I don't mean that the album is bad, I say it's still damn good! My favourite song on the album is 'Who Rocks The Party' simply because it was so good when they played it live!

Rawr. 26 Aug. 2000
By B. Compton - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Les Savy Fav plays some great post-rock anthemic tunes. Their album 3/5 was pretty good, but this is downright INCREDIBLE. Self-Starter Foundation and Frenchkiss Records have such a wonky-rawk gem on their hands that I really can't imagine LSV improving on this (though lets hope they do). I hesitate to draw comparisons with other bands, but I'm reminded of Darling Little Jackhammer (for the chaotic-rock stylings), Panel Donor (for the equally composed- and calculating-rock stylings) and a smidge of Fugazi (just because).
Noisy mid-western indie-rock fans can't go wrong with Les Savy Fav, and The Cat and The Cobra is easily the best place to start. If you dig this (and you should) you can move on to 3/5, which stands as a pretty endearing record on its own.

This album is good like um really good 16 Nov. 2002
By Drew Dahle - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This record is amazing. i would describe it as art-punk that is not too arty and not too punky. it has such LSF classics as We've got boxes, Who rocks the party, and Wake up! but my personal favorite(and the best song on the album)is 'the end.' it stands out because of its jazzy time signature. the best part of the album is when tim sings "call me when you wanna call me" les savy fav have one coolest sounds i've ever heard. if your bored with current music scene(and you should be) look no further than les savy fav. check out liars too they're another awesome NYC band. OH yeah, if you haven't seen LSF Live you must see it. they put on the best live show i've ever seen. Plus tim is completly out of his mind.

but it does have soul 8 July 2004
By "tim_funker" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
In response to the review that gave it 3 stars: his point that enough noise is confused with soul doesn't make sense. Listening to Tim's lyrics as well as the musicianship, I hear inventive, very soulful music. Regardless of genre distinctions and complex analysis of the scene's context, this is a moving album.

Ignore the first review... 25 May 2000
By the Persian Rug - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
To think that the first reviewer would mention LSF and Korn in the same sentence is troublesome... While LSf play airtight aggressive music they are a much different entity than the knuckle-dragging, halfwits that make up Korn and it's equally dim fan base. "The Cat and the Cobra" bangs out track after track of intelligent quirky punk rock that pays homage to such early 90's indie rock luminaries as Brainiac, Polvo, Fugazi, and Unwound.

Les Savy Fav "The Cat and the Cobra" 10 May 2000
By AP - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The Cat and the Cobra is an excellent collection of songs written over the better part of 1999. With the departure of original drummer Pat Mahoney, Les Savy Fav, in 1999 welcomed college pal and former Hellbender drummer Harrison Haynes. Haynes brough a freshness to the band that created, I think, the perfect chemistry that the Fav have been looking. The Cat and the Cobra is a blend of familiar sounds that reminisce the Pixies, Rye Coalition and the DC punk movement. The Fav are no strangers to the studio, and with help from Brooklynite Nicholas, they mastered the perfect stew of sounds. Guitarist Seth Jabour and bassist Syd Butler(founder of French kiss)write the perfect, quintasential parts making the music both melodic and at times super experimental. WIth the recent departure of former guitarist Gibb Slythe, Jabour has found no problem comprising multiple guitar lines live. He's a wiz. Vocalist Tim Harrington, one of the most intense vocalists, has an imagination constantly flowing in all directions. You have to see them live. The Fav will be doing an East coast tour beginning May 19th with Modest Mouse and Califone. oh yeah, in regards to the other kids review, Harrison Haynes is a guy and has a girlfriend.........
