Savages/Palma Violets: Liverpool Leaf
Kate Mossman, Observer, The, 29 July 2012
IT'S A BARGAIN, two for one, a post-punk bogof: the band they're calling the all-girl Joy Division, plus four boys named after perfumed sweets. Both Savages and Palma Violets formed less than a year ago, neither has enough material for a whole album and one is still unsigned. They're joint-headlining a national tour though, 40 minutes each at the Liverpool Leaf tonight – which means all their songs and nothing left for an encore.
