“Finally, Boston spews up the kinda bile it deserves- a bonafide rock n’ roll inferno of sleaze, spit and bad intentions. Like amphetamine ripped bikers in a lingerie factory, on the utterly Rockin’ and completely mandatory “American Standard”. Hands down, and without question, the Kari Nations are the most exciting rock and roll band to crawl from the wreckage of the Boston rock scene since Rock City Crimewave. Trust me, I’m a pro at this kind of thing. See them, feel them, do whatever they tell you to- real rock is back, sinner, and it’s name is the Kari Nations. (Ken Mcintyre of Classic Rock Magazine)”
“The KariNations started out as the Russ Meyer inspired Carrie Nations, but that version quickly died thanks to some narcotics, rehab stints, and a lawsuit based on the name, naturally.. Singer V nabbed bass player Nikki Core, and. with a slight name change, the two began to write and record what would eventually end up being American Standard. The plan was to get the whole album done and then put together a full band to play live shows..
I suppose this whole rock n’ roll debacle can be blamed on some sort of twisted alchemy, a terrible concoction of rock star ego, common sins, and rancid liquor. Nikki and V are soul mates, without a doubt, but on a whole other dimension, where loving the one you’re with means wrapping a microphone cord around the throat one moment and sharing a stiff drink the next. These are Satan’s spawn, plain and simple – she a shameless, beer-spittin’, titty-flashin’ glorywhore with a passion for Nikki Sixx’s piss, dead babie”
“Get ready for a new breed of rock n' roll terror with an invasion of metal/industrial new wave with a machine head feel of loud music. KN features male/female vocals and this single is just a sampler until the full album comes out. This CD features the songs "Hard to Resist" and "Machine Girl". Can't Wait to hear more”

“And though Slunt’s songs are thick with glam starbust riffs and grimy garage cherrybombs, if you’ve heard the Donnas, Les Hell on Heels, Karinations, Half Cocked, etc., you’ve heard Slunt (and heard it done better). So unless you’re dipping your toe into the sleazerock abyss for the first time, you probably don’t need to give these dirty girls and their man slaves a ride.”
