The Rock City archives: 2013

Savage + Persian Risk, Rock City Basement

  • Friday 19th July 2013


Metal Mansions Present:


Hailing from heart of the UK, Savage were born out of the need for a bunch of teenagers to put their own stamp on hard rock. At the tender age of just 15 and 18 , founder members Chris Bradley and Andy Dawson set light to the local music scene by first rampaging through covers of their heroes such as Thin Lizzy, Ufo, Deep Purple and Van Halen.


Persian Risk:

Formed in 1979, *Persian Risk* was the brainchild of ex-Stoned Soul Party guitarist Phil Campbell, who recruited vocalist Jon Deverill, second guitarist Dave Bell, bass player Nick Hughes, and drummer Razz Lemon.
