Reviews and kind words for Savage Mechanic


As always we thank the people that took time to listen to our stuff and write words about it. This is a list of our favourite quotes and links back to the original articles. Translations are a mixture of Google Translate and Ted's ability to badly converse in many, if we make an error or change any meanings we apologise, it isn't on purpose!

“““The track is a trip to the past, with a modern twist and sense of humor. Its Garage Rock sounds make it perfect for a mystery movie, a ride through the city at night, or simply annoying your neighbors at 5 am. The Nasty doing what they do best… making fun of whoever/whatever they want, shedding a light on post-modernism bullshit, and exposing the truth about your aunt’s tale of having sex with George Bush back in college.” @jpgchief @madzen

“An enticing opening greets the listener and instantly demands our attention. We adore the groove that soon establishes itself and sets the scene for what will come. As the charismatic vocals drop, the lyrics ring out and draw the listener in. In addition, the backing instrumentation is filled with texture….” @fvmusicblog

“Both ironic & mysterious, transporting me back to the era of 80’s video games” @edgarallanpoets

“By the time the chorus hits, with its catchy hooks and impressive vocal performances, you'll find yourself singing along, dancing in your seat, and fully surrendering to the anthemic magic that 9 O'Clock Nasty conjures up with minimal effort and maximum joy.” @saiidzedan

“The introduction with hammond organ at tearing levels, is duly “attacked” by the nerve-wracking duel between the irony-laden vocals and the powerful and vibrant instrumental that dives into garage instances! As usual, the cadence breaks always give rise to highly seductive atmospheric panoramas, “abducting” us into an unprecedented sensorial journey.” @musicforall

“This new track has an initial soundscape that transports you back to the 70's, with its experimental style rock and compelling drum beats, reminiscent of bands like The Doors. The track appears to be an exploration into the past with a twist of modernism as they divulge through their lyrics individuals who seem to be compulsive liars, extensively elaborating their stories and the dubious nature they convey.” Ciara at @musicistoblame

All of 9 o’clock Nasty’s songs put a smile on my face, but ‘Savage Mechanic’ is one with a sneaky grin. … ‘Savage Mechanic’ jumps from the 80s track to a contemporary garage rock with indie-rock stylings and punk brashness. I’m just generalising here genre-wise because, seriously, who knows what to expect from the inimitable 9 o’clock Nasty? “Nicole Mendes at @theothersidereviews

“a composition that feels like a roller coaster that will take you to experience a new musical world that will break your boredom of the moment” @endsessions

“This is where the dark and hazy scaffolding of the track bursts like an exploding oil rig. Some muffled words in German add to the infernal feeling of the song’s finale. And in the end, you only know two things: you want to experience this sonic hellride over and over again, and you need to talk to your favourite Savage Mechanic again.” @mangowavereviews

“Savage Mechanic is a ringing delight of joyous rhythm, all executed with the taunting nosh of a riff that promises to be the theme song of your dream.” Nishant at @sinusoidal.music

“Crispy, distorted vocals accompany the post-punk instrumentation… “Savage Mechanic,” is a raging rock hit and the perfect addition to any indie playlist.” @senocularmedia

“This piece is a perfect mix between past and present. The Garage Rock sounds will remind you of the great hours of rock of the 70s, while modern production brings a touch of freshness and modernity.” @iggymagazine 

“Their classic style of maximising whimsy and goofiness while still having coherent, experimental musical structures is on full display here” @lostinthemanor

“With “Savage Mechanic,” 9 o’clock Nasty showcases their prowess for crafting a slick rock n’ roll soundscape that immediately grabs the listener’s attention. The track bursts to life with a grooving beat and an organ riff that sets the tone for what’s to come. The vocals kick in, exuding a captivating blend of swagger and intensity, perfectly complementing the pulsing bassline that underpins the entire composition.” @plasticmagazine

“another slice of UK underbelly… Inspiration can come from many places. In the case of Savage Mechanic it’s from the exaggerated stories of those you might happen across in your everyday life. The track starts in dramatic style with church organ and a grungy groove. The lyrics are poetically biting, and bring to life a character who enjoys too many porkie pies.” Graeme at @york_calling He was there.

“Savage Mechanic kicks off with some awesome synth sounds before a funky bassline kicks in, and this mixed with the organ sound gives the song a certain swagger right from the start.” @themetalpriestess for Metal Asylum

“It must be hard to make something this infectious and fun with a heavy dollop of wry wit and cynicism.“ @donutrecordsofficial

“the ingenuity of this band takes over your body with an extremely addictive instrumental created with genres such as Pop, Rock and Punk“ @zonaemergente

“it is powerful and sticky, it is pure contemporary and nostalgic Rock and roll at the same time.“ @indieoclock

“"Savage Mechanic" is distinguished by bold arrangements and powerful lyrics. The group perfectly mixed powerful electronic sounds with alternative Rock influences, creating a unique musical fusion that makes their trademark.” @info_music_fr
