Late Show: LIKE A MARTYR: Rock / Garage / Blues REVIEWS: "Singer/guitarist Jeremy Allingham’s loose and dirty bad-child guitar and leathery voice play centre to a tight as hell band that creates good gritty music for the rocker in us all and as far as shameless rock records go, As Long As You Don’t Get Caught is good as gold." -The Discorder (September 2010) " 'As Long As You Don't Get Caught' is by far one of the best albums I've heard since I started doing the show. It rocks all around, it's gritty, it's catchy and it's fucking awesome." -Craig Stone, Power 104 Kelowna "The full-tilt, no-shit guitar rock on The North has the heady feel of first love...Please, rock is dead, until a four-piece like this resurrects it by virtue of sheer infatuation and zeal...Like a Martyr know how to put together a four-on-the-floor rocker and then kick you in the pants seat with it." -The Georgia Straight (Adrian Mack) "...riffmongers Like A Martyr (are serious contenders) for the title of Vancouver's most kick-ass new rock band." -The Georgia Straight (Steve Newton) WAR BABY: Grunge / Alternative / Thrash http://www.myspace.com/warbabyz Prisoners: http://www.myspace.com/imaginarynumbersband CROSSING LIONS: www.myspace.com/crossinglions
