Les Savy Fav Share New Song ‘Limo Scene’

    Les Savy Fan have released ‘Limo Scene’, the latest single from OUI, LSF, the band’s first album in 14 years. It follows previous cuts ‘Legendary Tippers’ and Guzzle Blood’. Check out its music video, directed by bassist Syd Butler, below.

    Speaking about the track, Tim Harrington said: “This song is the story of being abducted by the spirit of music past while out looking for the grave of Turner ‘Rocky’ Wilson Jr. — Rocky was bassist for the doo-wop band The Rivingtons. He made up ‘Pappa-Oom-Mow-Mow’ (1962) that the Trashmen took and uses for ‘Surfin Bird’ (1963.) It’s been copped, quoted, and reinvented ever since including the end of this song. You could call it a love letter to musical legacy but fuck letter is more like it. It’s about how baby music gets made — an orgy of breeding ideas.”

    Oui, LSF arrives May 10 via Frenchkiss/The Orchard.
