SAVAK Brooklyn 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 “Best of Luck in Future Endeavors” came out in May 2016 on Comedy Minus One. "Cut-Ups," their 2nd LP, will be out October 2017 via Ernest Jenning Record Co.
