The Nuns — Savage
from Savage 7” (1978)
I won tickets on WFMU for the Alejandro Escovedo show over at Maxwell’s tonight. Hell yeah. So in that spirit, I’m holding my own giveaway—this great track from Escovedo’s first band The Nuns, which the concert will surely sound nothing like, but I happen to be digging lately.
Go grab a vinyl rip of this 7” at Killed By Death. The guitars are all switched to ‘slay’ mode, and how can you not love Jennifer Miro’s keys and vocals?
I have a pretty good recording of a live gig they played in 1977 at the Mabuhay Gardens, San Francisco’s hip Filipino-restaurant-turned-punk-club in North Beach, during which they blast through nearly every original they have, and cover Iggy Pop’s ‘Gimme Danger.’ Stay tuned for that at some not-too-distant juncture.
