A GUT FEELING
The Rippers = The Satelliters + The JuJus + Bo Diddley + The Jackets
The Rippers come roaring back from the dark and dimly lit scum-filled alleyways with their new LP, A Gut Feeling. Those familiar with these mod-inspired maestros will no doubt be aware of their wild and raw sounds. Their garage rock is infamous. It is meant to annihilate and rip through the senses, and with previous records, they have done just that. A Gut Feeling, however, shows a kind of maturity. It’s well polished, but still maintains The Rippers’ bluesy, freakbeat sensations.

This Saturday, Dec. 17, Aggro 1969 will set up a pop-up shop at Velo City Bags (341 W. Pierpont). Amy Greer runs Aggro 1969, which is known for selling Warrior Clothing England, Alpha Industries and their own Aggro 1969, brands inspired by mod and reggae subculture. Nate Larsen Nate Larsen invited Greer to set up shop—just in time for the holidays. Admittingly, Greer doesn’t do pop-ups very often, since Aggro 1969 usually attracts a particular, subculture-minded clientele. However, Greer says, “It’s a good time of year to do business.”

“Nick Kuzmack has been a contributor with SLUG Magazine for the last two years. He’s a writer, journalist, marketer and self-proclaimed shitty bassist. He can often be seen haunting Salt Lake City’s record stores, and standing at above six feet tall, he is hard to miss. His sleek mod/rocker hybrid style caught the eye of SLUG, so we sat him down and made him talk.” Article and Photos by Tyson Call
