“Kentucky Knife Fight’s unique blend of twang-tinged, muddy, sensual blues rock stomp can only be truly experienced live. And with the band’s frequent touring throughout the Midwest and South (including a stop at this year’s Twangfest/KDHX SXSW day party in Austin, TX) more and more folks are being converted. You may show up on Wednesday night of Twangfest at The Pageant to see Hayes Carll but you’ll likely go home talking about Kentucky Knife Fight.”

“David Beeman from Old Lights sang on a shimmering version of “The Note.” Yankee Racers should be proud of this track’s effort as it most clearly displays the band’s impressive chameleonic ability. The show was an aesthetically diverse success. Call it artful mania — as the very thing that makes Yankee Racers such an amazing project. ”

“Wow! I was kinda blown away by this, and, dare I say, it sounded quite beautiful. They did a couple more tunes, then Jason walked off the stage. Leaving Curt, stage left guitarist, Nate Jones, Jason K., and James to do an instrumental song. And an awesome one at that, that really showed off their skills...They kinda amazed me, and I love what they have going. Their music is…well, I don’t know how to describe it...but KKF can manage to steal the other act's thunder. Get their albums on iTunes, become a fan, and next time they get to Texas, GO SEE THEM!”

“Two Swinging Picks are generally things to be avoided but the band of the same name playing The Stagger Inn on October 3 might just be worth checking out. ”

“With a style that's been called everything from punk to alternative country, Kentucky Knife Fight's gritty blend of rock and blues may be best experienced live. The band's slick guitar riffs are often complemented by instrumentation like harmonicas, organs, banjos and fiddles. Jason Holler belts out the groups dark, edgy lyrics in a strained and raspy voice...Crowd Response: Folks were literally lined up outside, waiting for their turn to get in during KKF's set at Hair of the Dog. The capacity crowd coupled with the band's energetic performance created a sticky, sweaty environment, which definitely added to the feel of the show.”

"I like that song, that one about 'Stickin' to me In St. Louie. (After Two Swingin' Picks opened for Pokey at this Third Man Records release show)

“In the last ten years, a younger generation has begun to merge blues and punk with a distinctively brazen, trashy and twangy St. Louis style...Kentucky Knife Fight comes well armed with fist-jabbing rhythms, blown-out vocals, snarling guitar, and a vintage sensibility that’s neither quaint nor hipster. This gang makes dark music for dark rituals in the shadows of the honky-tonks, but the band ultimately worships the blues, in both urban and rural forms, and it kicks the shit out of hillbilly music to boot.””
