If you read my column last week, you know that possibly the best band in town right now, White Savage, is going on hiatus this fall when guitarist Colin Smith heads off to study photography at Yale. Smith's departure is also putting the brakes on another great Chicago trash-punk band, Screaming Yellow Zonkers (which I guess has now changed their name to SYZ). Like White Savage, they'll be leaving behind a micro-discography consisting of a seven-inch on HoZac records. It's out this weekend in a run of 400 on black vinyl and a hundred on gold vinyl, both packaged in sleeves designed by Nathan from the Ponys. RIYL if you like the Germs, the Reatards, and/or having a good time. Ordering info's available through todd (at) horizontalaction.com.
