"In the Jacksonville music scene, Rusholme Ruffians is a gem among rocks."
“[Rusholme Ruffians] combines lo-fi vocals with classic pop instrumentation to serve up a steaming helping of post-punk fun. [The Demo EP's] standout track is 'Hipster Clique'...that promises to 'indie rock your ass off.' Ironically, the group does just that.”
“Rusholme Ruffians are a completely original combination of post-punk, pop, and progressive music that is not easily grasped on the first listen. Live performances [lead] you to believe you are going to be hearing a throwback, new wave act, but then come the breakdowns...the mixture of everyone doing their own thing results in a cohesive unit with equal parts crazy and dance-ability. The Ruffians are worth a listen and once you get that first taste, you can't get enough.”
