The Savages were a four piece 60's garage rock band from Bermuda, consisting of Howie Rego, Jimmy O'Conner, Paul Muggleton and Rob Zuill. The band released several singles and one album between 1965 and 1966 on the Duane label, founded by Eddy De Mello, a Bermudan of Portuguese descent. After the band split, some of the members continued in the music business. Several tracks of the band have appeared in 60's garage compilation albums released in the 80's and beyond.
