Tater Famine / Press

“ Spud-Grass Folky acoustic punks Tater Famine like to play with their food.... The Santa Cruz, Calif., trio incorporates rock into their decidedly Americana-based sound, but carries themselves like the Sex Pistols armed with acoustics guitars, mandolins and a standup bass.”

“Bringing snot-nosed punk-rock energy to old-time folk, the local boys in Tater Famine are one of the more accomplished folk-punk bands to emerge from Santa Cruz in recent memory. Full of swagger, down-home authenticity and righteous rage, the band raises an impressive ruckus with their all-acoustic setup, demonstrating that you don’t necessarily need distortion to rock a crowd. The band has been a local favorite for years, but it’s gaining a loyal following up and down the West Coast thanks in part to its 2008 debut …An Untimely Fashion, a fine document of the band’s kinetic energy.”
