Born of the ashes of Baltimore punk-influenced, political rockers The Soma Solution, Savory James formed with the intention of placing the focus on cathartic, melodic passion-play. Boiling down the complicated structures of their previous band, Rob and Chris got back to what matters the most to them, making music that they, themselves, can let go to. With the addition of Josh Lundy, formerly of local indie powerhouse Sylvan Screen, the right chemistry was complete. Based on the tumultuous psyche of a world too rotten for the 'nice guys,' Savory James invites the listener into the continuously coping and molting mind of someone trying to escape the world that doesn't care that he cares too much. Neurosis, catharsis, healing, and near-misses for bliss and self-destruction pour over noisy guitars, haunting melodies, and destructive drums that bring the spectacle of self-sadism and uber-masochism to life. One if left with the impression that not only do the members need to make the music, they need to perform it, in a display of public soul-cleansing and self-exorcism. The songs included are part of the band's first full length LP, 'The Surgeon,' formally released July 28th, 2007. 'Gentlemen with a heart for the sweat beneath the music.' -Mark Redding, lead singer of The Shackeltons 'Elvis Costello and the Attractions without the keys... I think it was all the happy bouncy bits.' - Billy Jack Mast - ex. MisEuphoria, Not Quite Tipsy Myspace Layouts.
