CALGARY — Beware! Savage Henry and the Infamous One Pounders have arrived to conquer and ravage your genitals.

Spawned from a personal ad in the paper and brief breakfast-conversation over sausages, Savage Henry and the Infamous One Pounders emerged united for one reason: to set the world on fire. Since 1998, they’ve been doing just that; tearing up the dark holes of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan and any other town that will consent to their entry. You will know Savage Henry and the Infamous One Pounders were there, by the trail of weak-kneed, breathlessly moaning humans quivering in their wake.

Despite their nasty habit of shredding through members, what remains today is a furious group of savage one pounders; Savage Henry, guitar and vocals; El Macho, guitar and philandering; Uno Tremirez Tremirez, bass guitar and Mr. Pink on drums. Due to their bold claim of being the “Kings of Spunk Rock,” we asked Savage Henry to provide evidence of salaciousness.

“I don’t know if anybody actually masturbates to our music. We don’t have a lot of (music) videos, but if you could see us, our faces, I could see that happening.”

We here at BeatRoute can only assume the same outcum.

Decked out in scantily-clad suits, balaclavas and masks, their live performances are nothing short of an “orgiastic-sweaty-gyrating mob of people” with drunk fans abound and general bad behavior. More importantly, the band says that “everyone who cums and sees Savage Henry and the Infamous One Pounders gets laid,” so what’s not to love?

The more astute readers may be wondering, why wear the masks, why shield your fans from your stunning looks and chiseled chins?

“When you’re this sexy, when you’re this good-looking, sometimes people don’t take you seriously; I didn’t want us lumped in with that, we choose to hide some of our God-given talent, in favour of artistic merit,” explains Savage Henry. And for this, Savage Henry and Infamous One Pounders, we thank you.
Musically, Henry and the One Pounders are a mix of tongue and cheek, punk rock and old school, rockabilly-roll. There’s no stand-up bass required for the funk this band expels upon their audience.

Lewd lyrics ride the sweet licks of the both guitars; the ass-pounding drums and pulsating bass create a carnal-lust that no living, breathing person can deny. The magnitude of Savage Henry’s guitar playing is incomparable to many musicians; it’d be an insult to attempt, although bands like Sloppy Seconds and The Dwarves are similarly sonically salacious.

The band has three sexy, hot albums helping them out as well. Ribbed and ready for your pleasure, in order of each satisfying release; Abuse It or Lose It (2003), The Second Cuming of Savage Henry and the Infamous One Pounders (2009) and Raw Gonzo from April of last year. And if they think the human race can handle it, they’ll be unleashing another sexy album shortly. When it comes to touring, some violations and restrictions are keeping the guys close to home. But not to worry: they are allowed deep inside the grasslands of Alberta.

As for the exact meaning of the “one pounder” in their infamous band name, well, no comment from Savage Henry… at least until he weighs it.

Catch Savage Henry and the Infamous One Pounders on February 13th at Lord Nelson’s Bar and Grill during the third annual Dark Days of Winter. They will also perform on February 14th at the Overtime Sports Bar.
