The Savage Nomads: Pinkie's Little Light

Londoners The Savage Nomads continue their quest to bring back the sound of the New Romantics. Their new single Pinkie's Little Light is slightly over the top, which is actually quite fitting for their chosen niche. Clean cut stuff with a couple of nice hooks. It will be embraced by the latte crowd and eyed by ad guys looking for a soundtrack for a commercial promoting something flash and shiny.

Savage Nomads
Cole Salewicz: guitar & vocals
Josh Miles: guitar & vocals
James Rose: bass & vocals
Benjy Miles: guitar, synth, percussion
Petr Matousek: drums

Pinkie's Little Light will be released on Republic of Music. Release date: November 24th.

Live dates:
  • 11/14 Under the Bridge, London (w/ Dreadzone)
  • 11/17 Sheffield university @ foundry & fusion, Sheffield
  • 11/20 Green Door Store, brighton

Play guitar? Want to be taught by the masters? Got deep pockets? The 2015 edition of the G4 Experience features Joe Satriani, The Aristocrats, Animals As Leaders, and Mike Keneally. That's right: fulla bands, so it's not just guitar but also drums, bass and keyboards at Cambria Pines Lodge in California (June 28-July 2, 2015). Joe Satriani:

This year I’m happy to announce an exciting new G4 line up, with each player selected for their stunning musicianship and original approach to guitar playing. Guthrie will be bringing his bandmates from The Aristocrats – Bryan Beller on bass and Marco Minnemann on drums. Tosin will come with Animals As Leaders featuring guitarist Javier Reyes and drummer Matt Garstka. Mike “The Wizard” Keneally returns this year bringing his unique multi-instrumental style and approach to the camp giving clinics, playing a solo show as well as being part of my band’s performances and to round out our teaching/performing staff will be my good friends and all-around awesome guitarists Doug Doppler, Bruce Bouillet, and Andy Aledort.
