"The Hangmen occupy a strange, dark space. Imagine if The Damned, Slipknot and The Cramps met with Johnny Cash and Alice Cooper to watch The Rocky Horror Picture Show on a bottle of night nurse each. The Hangmen would be the band playing in the bar afterwards".
"A unique band in todays musical climate...full of punk attitude rock and roll...a band that defy convention
"The Hangmen are quite probably insane, a delightful cacophony of bizarre songs, if you want something new delivering damn fine tunes...your head may explode with delight!"
"Very fine sick, twisted Psychobilly Punk. How can you resist?...a foot-stomping, beer-swilling riot live."
"...its not common for CC to do music reviews but the latest from psychobilly renegades The Hangmen caught my eye, well ear...hot rods and drag racing, a fact born out by "Wake Up, Smell The Nitro"...the ideal CD for those into rods and psychobilly."
“I've been waiting for Cacklefest for days. Anticipation can raise expectations so high that failure becomes increasingly likely. Now that Cacklefest has finally arrived, it was with trepidation that I slipped the disc on. I needn't have worried. As the last track played out I pressed the play button again... I've always considered The Hangmen to be an album band, but damn...You have to hear it to believe it.”
"The Hangmen are popping up all over the country to packed houses...The UK Psychobilly scenes secret weapon" "Dark, moody and highly addictive, The Hangmen's 'Rock 'n' Roll Freakshow' is a circus full of buzzsaw guitars, rockabilly cool and glacial lyrics, making this four tracker all killer"
“The Hangmen, thee most independent of Psychobilly bands have come up with a no compromise killer of an album...song writing is clever and hard hitting as it writhes about festering in the gutter, but look again it's not spluttering it's death cackle, it's revelling in its position as the lowest common denominator in musical genres. There are no taboos with The Hangmen, it's all here, murder, death and mental health issues covered in unsavoury vocal style, delivered on the back of a jack hammer double bass driven beat and guitar to make your ears bleed. 'Rotten To The Bone' proclaims the cover, you can't argue with that, decomposition never sounded so good. ”
"Music to die for, Your mum aint going to like this. So loud it gives you nosebleeds...full on PsychobillyRockn'Roll..."
"Hard & fast, truly contagious Psychobilly no fan of the genre should be without...get it..."
"Beserk, well written & performed - impressive...Bizarre punk rockabilly madness, sick & twisted, absolutely excellent, one of the world's best Psychobilly bands..."
"Delivering the goods in their own unique style...more than worthwhile..."
"Live pick of the week!"
"The Hangmen just toured Canada & the U.S. and amazed crowds everywhere they went... Highly recommended!!"
"Top class, from some poor old tortured zombies brain, stories from the sickest of comic books. The Hangmen pepper their songs with an evil sense of humour, this is not the sort of thing you'd want to listen to alone..."
"No-Shit attitude...Their sound is fast and raw and takes no prisoners - the sheer blood and thunder of the music is both effective and impressive"
"This is no shit: The Hangmen kick ass consistently...Rock n'Roll macabre of this calibre simply can't be overlooked"
