Savage Henry

Your Signature Move

Ivan Mueting, contributor Your signature move is who you are. It defines you. You could just say “This is who I am,” but actions speak louder than words. You can make no louder statement than slamming your enemy from the top ropes. You want to wrestle? You want to be the greatest? Well, who do you want to be? Do …

Eternal Tapestry – Wild Strawberries

Adam Jacobs, contributor “A lucid dream where a drone ingests strong hallucinogens and slowly takes Wall-E to Pleasure Town by eating out his robot butthole.” This  is how I would describe Eternal Tapestry’s new album, Wild Strawberries. Their name alone couldn’t be more obvious for a jam band unless they were called Patchouli Partners or the Hacky Sack Gang. Let’s …

die geister beschwören – The Great Defenestration

Leah Brzezinski, contributor Die beister beschwören translates to “call up the ghosts.” And I have to admit, I had to look up the exact meaning of defenestration, which is: “the act of throwing a thing (or especially a person) out of a window.” This Portland experimental folk ensemble certainly does both in this intricate 17-minute sonic spree recently released on …

ANAMAI – Sallows

Mikey Morales, contributor Somewhere on one end of the First World is a teenage goth boy  masturbating furiously, wishing he could find his One True Goth Love. Somewhere on the other end of the First World is a teenage goth girl, not completely aware of her sexuality, masturbating to images of Bowie in Labyrinth, and deems herself a demisexual, saving …

Axis: Sova – Early Surf

Sam Greenspan, contributor After listening to this album several times over, I still approach it with the same level of competence I’d approach a test on imaginary numbers. It seems to make sense, logic and mathematics prove that it makes sense, and I, for the life of me, cannot understand it. I also, blissfully, don’t feel the need to. Imagine …

Bouquet – Bouquet

Sam Greenspan, contributor If there was one artist I could resurrect, it would be Vincent van Gogh – for two reasons. The first, so that he could see the power, fame, and impact of his work first hand, and second, so that I could play him Bouquet. I can only assume they would swiftly become his favorite band. The concurrently …

This SHITs for Reels – Punk Rock Movies

Michael Sargent, contributor Jubilee (1978) is an avant-garde punk rock dystopian nightmare. In a good way. Queen Elizabeth I demands her alchemist show her 400 years into a future world of roaming punk gangs (The Slits!), gunfire, creepy sex games, Adam Ant, violent cops and a crazy-eyed madman producer who proclaims “As long as the music’s loud enough, we won’t …

“Fuck you Savage Henry, you filthy advertisement pimp…”

(Ed Note: Parrot is a regular music contributor, but was apparently too punk to compose their assigned album review.) Fuck you Savage Henry, you filthy advertisement pimp. One of the poverty issue tips should’ve been to wipe your ass with this magazine. This month stop sitting around reading and listening to albums like a moldy little turd and go to …

Abused G, C, and F Chords Go On Strike; Punk Community Left In Shambles

Sam Greenspan, contributor Akin to the weakened knees of Atlas holding our mother Earth aloft on his crippled legs, the G, C, and F chords have finally had enough. Striking and picketing outside a Berkeley punk show at a students house, the aforementioned chords have refused to be played after decades of abuse and little to no compensation or even …

There’s No Me in Punk

Tiffany Greysen, contributor I have the opposite of low self-esteem, I have a delusional amount of high self-esteem. I  think of myself as funnier, prettier, smarter and more amazing than I really am and I’m constantly in a race with others. However, I’m the only one who knows we’re competing. When someone asks me something that I don’t know, I …
