Locked away in a basement in Sweden, this band of degenerates started piecing together riffs that had more in common with early USHC and No Future punk than it did with the jerky riffs of their Scandinavian brethren. Malmo is a post-industrial town where the working class struggles for both work and an identity, and their orphaned sons URBAN SAVAGE reflect that desperation as well as the degradation of one's own faith in the society that has been built around them. Their sound is nomadic; a blistering cacophony of boots on streets and tight, organic rhythms.
Their aesthetic references all come from the darker side of punk in its variety of styles. The aggressive back-beat of Negative Approach and the driving guitar of Blitz come through at equal levels, creating a sound that is honed in on an idea more than a sound. The production on this 4 song 7" is thicker than their previous effort (last year's 'Let Thunder Roar' LP, only released in Sweden), and the scope is deeper. In the end, this is music about one thing. This is music for the unattached. This is music for savages.
