The Savage Blush with Spidora and Vocokesh

August 18 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Sunday, August 18th, The Savage Blush returns to The Cooperage with Spider and Vocokesh!

Denver based The Savage Blush is a psychedelic rock band, projecting reverb-washed atmospheres of phaser modulated melodies, punchy rock rhythms, and vocals that soar and echo throughout.

The band creates a sound that blends the familiar textures and dynamic structures of bands such as The Animals, The Doors, and Jefferson Airplane, with the ethereal spaces and darker fuzzed out psych rock of the present age.


VOCOKESH arrived on the scene in 1989/90 when Wisconsin/US situated Richard Franecki (guitar, bass, electronics) decided to leave his main project F/i along with Jan Schober (drums) and Steve Zimmerman (electronics). This obviously evolved in a friendly manner and both related bands decided to produce ‘Merge Parlour’ as a split album in 1992. VOCOKESH’s debut though was ‘Ispepnaibara’ in 1990 additionally featuring Lars Kwam on saxophone.

Similiar to F/i, but more guitar and less electronics dominated, the band covers a variety of styles. The sound can be treated as an avantgarde blend of psychedelic and space. This is often based on blues themes and spiked with kraut rock portions here and there. Their debut was followed by an EP one year later named ‘Still Standing In The Same Garden’ where John Helwig (bass, guitar) joined as a new member now for a long lasting collaboration. Revitalized under the moniker THE VOCOKESH they produced several albums during the next years – 1995 ‘Smile and Point at the Mountain’ provided with several ‘untitled’ song titles, followed by the more ethnic ‘Paradise Revisited’ in 1998.
