DANGEROUS IDIOTS / Press

"Fans of The Foo Fighters, The Pixies and classic indie rock bands, are in for a treat with Dangerous Idiots... it’s clear that this is no ordinary band, nor album. The Dangerous Idiots will continue to leave you guessing... With emotional songs, political lyrics and just plain catchy tunes, it’s one of the few times I’ve been surprised by an album - but in a good way. Sarlo has shown once again he has what it takes to make an interesting and exciting album; I’m sure there is more to see from this promising band."

"Sarlo is entirely unafraid to throw the full force of his emotions into the performance... amongst the fuzzy riffs, clattering drums and raw three-part harmonies there is a surprising amount of lyrical depth and poignancy... just listening to the record you can practically see the trio throwing themselves around on a live stage, a heaving mosh below them – and that’s no bad thing."

"Aaron Sarlo is no idiot, but he has managed to instill the danger back into Rock ‘n’ Roll... [DANGEROUS IDIOTS is] a superb album... packed to the rafters with riffs, thunderous drums and bassline rumbles to shake any building to its foundations... a record distilling all that is Rock ‘n’ Roll. ... This definitely isn’t the work of idiots, it could almost be genius."

"With an opening line of ‘I’m tired of all this bullshit’, it sets the tone for what is set to be a collection of songs with drums and guitars working as one driving their rhythms straight to your throat... 'Can I Get a Role Model’ [is] a more subdued affair reminding me of my youth with it’s bible of Blink 182 type lyrics right up until it kicks into a wall of distortion mimicking some of Billy Corgan’s best works."

“Idiot(s) ride on By Shea Stewart LITTLE ROCK — "Can I Get a Role Model" is one of the album’s standout moments, a muted guitar lead kicks off the tune, a story of the lack of role models in today’s world, before a tidal wave of distorted guitars stampede into the tune. It’s a simple yet effective pop melody mixed with a howling rhythm and the catchy chorus of the song title. Sarlo laid down his guitar for the earlier part of the century, concentrating on ukulele, which he uses to effect with this breezy ballad, allowing his strumming and angelic voice to power the gorgeous tune. Dangerous Idiots is a blast of an album — well-crafted, catchy tunes... harking to the best of late-20th century college rock with hints of the early days of grunge and alternative rock. Too bad the first edition of Dangerous Idiots is over. Let's hope Sarlo has a second act in store. It'd be worth it. - Shea Stewart”
