Edinburgh born artist GARETH SAGER‘s CV is quite impressive: multi-instrumentalist, singer/songwriter, classical music composer, a founding member of funky post-punk
junks The Pop Group, jazzy avant-garde combo Rip Rig + Panic, Bristol rockers Head
and countless collaborations here, there and everywhere. After releasing his gracious classical piano LP 88 Tuned Dreams last year Sager is back with a totally different beast. Assisted by his gang THE HUNGRY GHOSTS he just dropped new album JUICY RIVERS.
It’s party time for all the outcasts, all the misfits and all the bohemians out there. Imagine the genial Mothers Of Invention fronted by the eccentric Captain Beafheart instead of the equally eccentric icon Frank Zappa. That’s my overall exciting feeling after a couple of ‘Juicy Rivers‘ spins. You get all the sonic pandemonium your greedy ears and your fucked up mind need. From elevating glam weirdness (Disco Sofa) to bluesy funkness (Pete Le Beat), from demonic rock (Bar Stool Warrior Chant) to deranged post-punk grimness (Pitbull Watusi) and lots of far-out stuff in between. Throw your straitjacket through the window and shake your lazy hips on repeat right now, right here…
