Savage Republic | Varvakios

Varvakios is the sixth studio album by acclaimed Los Angeles postpunk group Savage Republic. Recorded in Greece in February 2012 over the course of three hectic days, the album is a sequel of sorts to their 1989 album Customs, and draws on local sights, sounds and synergies. On several tracks the band are joined on violin by Blaine L. Reininger of Tuxedomoon, himself a resident of downtown Athens. Says frontman Thom Fuhrmann: "To walk into such a volatile situation and create this music in such a short time was by far the most satisfying experience that I've ever had as an artist."
Savage Republic were formed by noted artist-designer Bruce Licher in 1981, and inspired equally by punk and Krautrock. Savage Republic went on to issue four studio albums between 1982 and 1989, most issued through their own Independent Project label. The original band split in 1989, but re-formed twelve years later, releasing fifth album 1938 in 2007. A Best Of collection, Procession was issued by LTM in 2010. The next Savage Republic album, Aegean, is set for release in 2013.
