Though rarely acknowledged, California’s Savage Republic cut one of the greatest rock albums of the 1980s with 1988’s Jamahiriya. You know how some bands’ music just naturally exudes a heroic militancy, even without the help of lyrics? That description epitomizes this Savage Republic LP and the rest of their output throughout the era. With their radiant, heat-haze guitar attack, roiling, ritualistic rhythms, and strident vocals, Savage Republic have created a powerful body of work that’s bafflingly flown under the radar of most people. After a long hiatus, they returned 12 years ago with 1938, and their last LP, 2014’s Aegean, proves they’re as uncompromising and thrilling as ever. Make a beeline to this show after you see Mdou Moctar. by Stranger Writer Dave Segal
