The band SAVAK (pronounced "sah-vawk") was formed in 2015 by members of The Obits, Holy Fuck, Nation of Ulysses, and The Cops. Their influences range from '60s Texas psychedelia to British pub rock to early-'80s American hardcore, with some Zamrock and Chicha thrown in for good measure. Savak connect the dots from The Adverts to Bubble Puppy to The 101ers to MDC, making stops at Chrissy Zebby Tembo and Los Mirlos along the route. Their first album is coming out later this year on Comedy Minus One.

For the past three years, Spectral Fangs have been been on a spiritual journey intent on doing whatever the hell they want. From releasing the semi-psychedelic EP Memory Girl, which featured makeshift sitar and a gussied-up basement reverb vibe to playing shows from Brooklyn to sweaty basements everywhere, the Fangs have made their own weird way in the world. Summer 2016 brings their JUST RELEASED compilation vinyl record CALLIGRAMS to light (OM Records), in which they contributed 2 songs.
