"Remember those old Samsonite commercials where they put some pristine luggage in a cage with a lunch-starved apes and let the poor simian have at it? Well that's what this no-holds barred EP recalls in spades." Serene Dominic - AZ Republic http://www.azcentral.com/story/entertainment/music/2014/04/25/phoenix-tempe-local-music-scene-report/8162737/
We got bored; I decided to spend a buck on beer; we went to a riotous old saloon and had a few. - Kerouac Come to Rips Saturday, April 25th $5 at the door first drink is just one buck!(excluding premium alcohol) Just like Jack Kerouac.
"Cool is a word that in my opinion is thrown around far too much and has lost a lot of its meaning. Miles Davis, David Bowie, Paul Newman, Steve McQueen that’s what I think of when I hear the word “cool.” Battered Suitcases exhibit a similar saunter and confidence that is necessary to pull off a complete rock n’ roll package well."
