Girls Against Boys

90s Noise Rock band from DC to NYC, crossbreeding Dischord and Touch and Go Records and spreading the word around the globe.

The Heist

NYC based The Heist (aka 8G Band) can be seen nightly on NBC as the house band for The Late Show with Seth Meyers. Organized by actor and musician Fred Armisen the band features Eli Janney (Girls Against Boys), Syd Butler (Les Savy Fav), Marnie Stern (Hella) and Seth Jabour (Les Savy Fav). They will be once again serving as the house band playing a set of Brainiac songs with special guests: Juan Monasterio (Brainiac), John Schmersal (Brainiac, Enon, Caribou), Michelle Bodine (Brainaic, Shesus), Tyler Trent (Brainiac, The Breeders), Charles Bissell (The Wrens), Travis Morrison (The Dismemberment Plan) and Peter Aaron (Chrome Cranks), Gregg Foreman (Delta 72, Cat Power) and Melissa Auf der Maur (Hole, Smashing Pumpkins) and Matt Schulz (Holy Fuck, Savak).


SAVAK 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.

Cut-Ups, the new SAVAK record on Ernest Jenning Record Co., consists of 10 immaculate nuggets of primo, left-field rock'n'roll.

Its a heavy smorgasbord with results as laudable as one would expect given the pedigree. Cut-Ups is as kaleidoscopic, ambitious and as curious a record as you could hope for.

Like their debut LP on Comedy Minus One, Best of Luck in Future Endeavors, theres that instant thing instant hooks all over, instant choruses but not cheap instant like the noodles. The flavors on this record have a long finish, with a satisfyingly wide palate.

There are pristine multi-part harmonies and skronky jazz bits, as well as odd, subtle experiments with Joe Meek-y sound design. Theres that undeniable propulsive groove that many of these guys have become synonymous with. There are also healthy smatterings of garage rock, 60s jangle, jazz and psych.

The devil is in the details on SAVAK records and there are many, many details on Cut-Ups.

A potent and pointed agitpop racket which manages to balance the dark and moody with the catchy as fuck. Noisey

Dread-fueled, post-punk angst tempered with catchy hooks. Magnet

SAVAK is the band that plays the party after the after party. Jersey Beat

Girls Against Boys is a post-hardcore band, originally forming in washington dc in 1988 and currently based in new york city.

The group began as a side project of Eli Janney and Fugazi drummer Brendan Canty. Canty soon left the project and by 1991 Janney had gone on to recruit three former members of D.C. hardcore punk group Soulside - Scott McCloud, Johnny Temple, and Alexis Fleisig - to complete the line-up. Girls Against Boys are perhaps most notable for employing dual bass guitars, a rarity in rock music, and for their second album, “Venus Luxure No.1 Baby”, a heavy yet nuanced entry into early 1990s post-hardcore. Their third album Cruise Yourself raised their profile, film director Kevin Smith used a song in each of his first two films. House of GvsB showed their sound taking a more soulful approach to their noiserock with a semi-successful single “Superfire”, at which point they signed to Geffen. Their major label debut saw them take a more industrial disco approach similar to Nine Inch Nails while retaining their postpunk feel, the album failed to launch the band into the mainstream and the band went on hiatus until their contract ended. Among the many side projects undertaken was Scott McCloud’s jazzy New Wet Kojak. The band reunited in 2002 to record ‘You Can’t Fight What You Can’t See’, released on Jade Tree Records which was a welcome return to their pre-Geffen sound and a critical success.
