Legendary dischordant dance rockers re-issue singles compilation.,
This review is from: Inches (Audio CD)
Les Savy Fav (pronounced "Lay Sah-vee Fahv for the unfamiliar) are here with a wonderful collection of 7" singles and previously unheard of material that will get the hips shaking of even the most grim-faced dreary-eyed metaller. Often regarded as the godfathers of independent music, LSF's insanely infectious brand of disco-rock positively soars here across 18 tracks of smile-inducing experimental tomfoolery. Heavily bearded (and often half-naked) front man Tim Harrington croons, calms and shouts whilst his band mates investigate weird sounds in an almost jam-like manner. They don't sound a million miles away from These Arms Are Snakes but make no mistake about it, this band is utterly unique. It is wonderfully encompassing and if you didn't pick this up on its original release, or if you just want to hear something innovative and exciting, then go well out of your way to get a hold of this.
