Every role he plays be it a solo piano performance , crooning in front of an 18 piece orchestra or stomping the streets with his 2nd Line band...you know Dr Savage is gonna be givin' it his all...sweatin' ...screamin'...searchin for the last drops of his Soul to give to you...YES YOU!!!!
Crawling from the wreckage of a head-on collision between Professor Longhair’s mother root honkytonk, Tom Waits’ low-life tales of dreams withering on the vine and Memphis Slim’s fire comes a beast that will not conform to the UK blues scene…
A man with a past, who gave up selling sex to sell soul. And sex. He plays dirty blues piano not seen (since Esquerita taught Little Richard a lick or two circa 1952.) and sings with a power and honesty rarely heard.
Meet The Players...
Rufus Stone/ Double Bass and Vocals
Rufus Stone is the number 1 man for The Savage...multi instrumentalist and super soul vocalist, Mr Stone fills all the gaps Savage leaves behind.
Matt Jackson / Guitar
Matt Jackson and Dr Savage go back...WAY BACK!!!...never really played together in a band until Mr Jackson announced his possible relocation to Hastings..." Hey Matt.. why don't yu play in my band?" says The Dr...and so he did.
Richmond Stockwell / Drums
Probably one of the only drummers to truly be able to keep up with Savages on stage antics....lightning fast, fantastic dynamics!
Bjorn Mcateer / Saxophones
Bjorn 'The Horn' Mcateer from Sweden first crossed paths with Savage on a 2nd Line gig, Bjorn had been called in for a one off. Savage was astounded by his Vintage tone and asked him to play when ever he could, Bjorn is a busy busy man!!
Rob Leake / Saxophones
Rob Leake is The Genius behind The Savage 2nd Line Band.
He takes on all the roles, MD, writes, arranges and much much more.
Recently found out that Rob was also in an early incarnation of 'Polar Bear'
Brad Gross / Drums
Brad Gross is the drum sound on the 'Hot Sauce E.P.' He very sadly passed away a few weeks after the recording sessions and will be sadly missed...he was an all round top dude and inspiration to soooo many people, we love you Brad xxx
Dr Savage - Hot Sauce E.P.
1. Hot Sauce. Written by Dr Savage in the early 1990's, Hot Sauce was 1st recorded with his Band 'Savage Faith and the Believers', at the legendary 'Toerag Studio's, although never released.
2. I Ain' Crazy. Very much in the vein of Savage's old band 'Pimp', taking you on a journey into the dark unknown corners of your mind.
3. Play With Fire. This is a re-working of the tune 'Drink In Bars' which featured on the PIMP album, 'Theme From Pimp'
4. I Put A Spell On You. A cover of the Screaming Jay Hawkins classic, with 'The Savage 2nd Line' working their magic behind him.
