Savage Republic were pretty spotty, but when they were on, they were
on. To me, they're definitely one of the under-recognized post-
rock precursors. Somewhere in the early 23 Skidoo, early PiL, This
Heat, Neubauten neck of the woods. Almost pigfuck -- maybe
swinefondle, heheh -- with occasional barbaric screaming. Ceremonial
and Tragic Figures are the best places to go. Most everything has
just been reissued in GORGEOUS packaging; Ceremonial now comes w/ the

Odd how this thread wasn't revived in the wake of the reunion shows last year, but there must be another one. Damn good shows they were too!

I still listen to Tragic Figures. Great, timeless album.
I've gotten to know the guitarist pretty well and he is a swell guy. Perhaps I am biased because he always wears a Point Line Plane shirt (my old band) whenever I see him.
Unfortunately the reunion show I saw was awful. But I think the lineup (and rehearsal schedule) has changed since then.

Bruce Licher's got a Bandcamp site up for a few scattered but intriguing experiments
Newest one released today -- all quite good!

No love for Democratique et Populaire de Sauvage? I love that album's droney, doomy relentlesness. A precursor to my BJM/Dead Skeletons/Cave/Disappears adoration.

I loved listening to Jamahiriya while tripping because of the textures in the sound.

Quite liked the rest of the stuff i heard by them starting with Tragic figures which I picked up with the French sleeve in a Rough Trade sale. Think I'd seen some of their work reviewed in the NME.
I saw them in 1988 with Brad Laner on drums but the line up was falling apart. They had to get a mnember fo the support band to play drums in Birmingham.
I wrote this back in the mid 00ies with a lot of band inputhttp://www.furious.com/perfect/savagerepublic.html
