Dead Famous People "Harry" LP
Dons Savage is an unparalled talent, a savant of the perfect melody and lyrics which both touch and bite, a throwback to the Carole King’s and Gerry Goffin’s of Brill Building pop, an instinctive penseuse besting the originators of the Riot Grrrl movement by responding to their conversations of rage and sexuality and finding a place in the world some years before the initial sparks of that particular revolution had even begun. Dead Famous People’s first real album, Harry, is now being unleashed to the world.
Throughout these songs, Dons' power over melody and knack for profundity in a single simple line is unchanged since Dead Famous People's original incarnation. Harry is a rare record in a time of musical factionalism and a world divided into camps of wilfull obscurity and grotesque mockeries of stardom and art, a document of unadorned perfection which will make as much sense to you at sixteen as it will when you're sixty.
