Independent Project Records
(IPR066: 801673010323)




Originally released in 1988.

Savage Republic’s third album, originally released in 1988 with new drummer Brad Laner (prior to his forming the band Medicine) is a return to a more aggressive approach, with ventures into psychedelic and krautrock territory. The band stretches out into a more improvisatory approach on songs such as Tabula Rasa, Spice Fields, and the title track, while also incorporating solid blasts of power with So It Is Written and Lethal Musk. Greek and middle-eastern influences find their way into the procesings with a cover version of an instrumental track from Mikis Theodorakis’ soundtrack to the 1969 Greek political thriller “Z”, Pios Den Mila Yia Ti Lambri and the band-composed Lebanon 2000. Another cover song is a Republicized version of early UK punk group Alternative TV’s Viva La Rock ‘N’ Roll which takes the song in a whole new direction. Bonus tracks include three instrumental mixes of vocal songs from the album along with a short piece created as a promo spot for local radio station KXLU.
