Hanni El Khatib Savage Times Ltd 10" Vinyl 2017
Hanni El Khatibâ€™s first idea for his Savage Times project was to do something heâ€™d never done before. Instead, he ended up doing... well, everything heâ€™d never done before. Heâ€™d be playing new instruments, writing in unfamiliar new ways, opening himself up to an unrelenting stream of ideas and dedicating himself totally to pure musical instinct. And the result? 19 best-of-the-sessions songs, destined for vinyl release as a Limited Edition 10â€ LP Box Set, as well as the kind of creative revelations that only happen when you quit looking around and start looking ahead. Originally, heâ€™d hoped to explode the lingering idea that he was simply a blues-rock guitar player, but thatâ€™s why Savage Times touches on everything from garage rock to punk to disco, hip-hop and even some unexpected solo-guitar self-portraiture. But on the way, he also exploded his own idea of what he could doâ€”even maybe who he was, or would be. Savage Times was an experiment as well as an experience, that touched on some of the most personal, social & political elements to date.
