“KAV seems to have been surviving on a staple diet of barbiturates and Sleazy, Sunset Strip Rock ‘n’ Roll…. The result of meeting satan at the crossroads every month is a low-slung, blues –indebted rock ‘n’ roll outing seeped in whisky-soaked saloon brawls and murder ballad gusto”
— CLASH Magazine
"KAV is one of those one in a million artists that just exudes talent..Imagine if Bob Dylan was young in modern times and he had an addiction to sleaze and you’d be half way to understanding KAV’s sound… Simple, perfectly executed sleazy rock with hidden depths and a backpack full of attitude.

"Blaggers 'N' Liars" is a swaggering, bluesy beast.. Kav looks set to well and truly get the party started!"

“KAV’s debut is a bluesy, swaggering affair, with the singer refusing to pull his punches. ‘Blaggers & Liars’ he may detest, but KAV can rest easy as on this evidence he’s got the goods to match his boasting...”
" **** - Dirge-like blues rock thats part Primals XTRMNTR through its harsh beats and part Sisters
Of Mercy with gloomy guitars. It works a treat from the one-time Happy Monday."

"Oozing testosterone, it sounds like it's been marinated in JD and soaked in Marlborough smoke
along the way.... Imagine Shaun Ryder-meets Bob Dylan with a big injection of
off-your-face technoand you're almost there

“Heavy bluegrass riffs cast against a plaintive Lou Reed-esque vocal-set them apart from anything about at the moment. Lizard King and Killing Yourself stylishly bluesy while final song & EP Blaggers'n'Liars pares down like a mature but broody BRMC”
— THE BIRMINGHAM MAIL
"New single ROCK CHICK is a strangely pitched musical affair that somehow manages to meld the grooves of the Monday's to the sleazy rock of Marilyn Manson, the teutonic beats of Death In Vegas and the funk of James Brown; not an easy trick to pull off. An impressive introduction to the world of KAV
