Puschen and Shameless/Limitless proudly present the dream team double headlining bill that is Sean Nicholas Savage and Touchy Mob, both of whom are playing in support of stellar new records. This show is extra sweet for Sean, as it also serves as his Euro tour kick off.
Sean Nicholas Savage
September sees the release of Sean Nicholas Savage’s latest record, Other Death. Savage, a master of tenderness, reflection and projection, has released and toured relentlessly in pursuit of the rarer beauties found only in the nuance of pop song and performance.
Other Death was recorded in Santa Monica, Los Angeles as a collaboration with Agor, of Savage’s Arbutus labelmates Blue Hawaii, while Errhead of Doldrums plays on much of the record. Ramona Gonzalez (Nite Jewel) also makes an appearance, as do TOPS’ Jane Penny and David Carriere. This is
Savage’s highest fidelity recording to date, with daring, captivating, and as always minimal and soft production style. In contrast to his usual introspection, Other Death is immediately more upbeat, uptempo, confident, inspired and delivers more consistent pop singles than any of his previous
Savage is not playing to the middle. Here he gives his listeners, those who crave a harder SNS smack, the energy they crave. This is the release fans will turn to when they want to feel the sophisticated, delicate, and enchanted music of Sean Nicholas Savage at its most brave, free and loud. It’s as if upon being tossed a copy of Other Life, Savage reads the message; “Other Life?” and throws it back at us in blood red, “Other Death”.
The summer of 2015 saw the release of Touchy Mob’s « Let My Wild Boys Shine In The Boomers ». Consisting of 12 tracks (many of which will be familiar frequent Touchy showgoers) recorded over fits and starts in the previous 4 years, the record is surprisingly cohesive and thoroughly excellent. This will mark his first Berlin show since the release of the record.
The concert will be followed by an after party featuring Kirin J Callinan live (XL, Record Makers) + DJ sets by S.N. Savage and Touchy Mob + others!
