“Audio clip about a peace march and raising money for it are supplanted by crusty rockabilly guitars and rattlesnake rhythms. Telling the tale of this is a gruff gent with a lowdown style and some wanna-be Jordanaires doing a prison chant in the background. Out of the play book of the Cramps or the Stray Cats is the majority of the tune until the guitarist squawks out a solo in the big rock style of distorted squall. This reporting is of an event I am unaware of but now my interest has been whetted. Very raw and rather informative while still RAWKING.”

SoundOut Crowd Review for "They Believe"

“Wonderful. Wonderful in every way. The bass drives along the song while the guitar keeps you wanting to dance. The vocals are perfect for the style of music. It conveys the simplicity of the love felt and at the same time makes it difficult for me to not be dancing right now. This is the type of song that should have a radio station based around. No one in there right mind could dislike this. It brings you back to an era when dancing was fun and the guitars were driving. The bass echoes your heart The bass echoes your heart as you are dancing with your lady, and it just keeps thumping along. His voice swoons the ladies in and all the guys want to be him. It brings you back to an era that, whether you were alive then or not, everyone enjoys.”

SoundOut Crowd Review for "Arizona Girls"

“I thought that the song began with an interesting spoken word intro, and I was wondering if this song was going to try to put forward some kind of social or political commentary. However, it seemed like a pretty straightforward rock and roll track to me once it got started. I liked that it was a little rough around the edges, as it gave it grit and authenticity. The guitar work was punchy, and there seemed to be a slight psychedelic timbre to the song which I really dug. I thought that the singer had a really cool voice, and I think that he will make an excellent leading man on vocals. I thought that the guitar work was also very strong, and the drummer laid down an unwavering foundational drum beat. I enjoyed the song very much and would like to know more about the band and hear more of their tunes. I think that they have big potential in the rock community.”

SoundOut Crowd Review for "Arizona Girls"

“Fun music, a mix of James from the 80's with the throaty yellative vocals of the the Clash. High energy collaboration with biker beats. Its James dean meets the Clash. Forceful thrusting. Radical guitar rifts again meets thrah punk feeling.”
