Philadelphia Weekly

“There's something to be said for ambition. With so many fledgling indie bands proud just to play to their base on nights and weekends, the flamboyant but chops-equipped boys of Fat City Reprise moved from South Philly all the way to Hollywood to try to "make it." What's interesting about that is the band's self-titled debut--released on the eponymous upstart label of their manager, Mike Lowe--is weirder and woollier than almost any mainstream act out there. It's as if Fat City Reprise are waiting for the music industry to catch up, instead of forcing themselves to backpedal into something more sellable.Franky Pedano's gravelly, conversational singing and mad keyboard pounding leads the charge.The result is a Muppets-worthy blend of Red Hot Chili Peppers funk-rock and growling Pearl Jam-isms folded into Motown-ish pop and Halls & Oates-inspired blue-eyed soul with a goofy jam-band flair ”
