Husbands N Knives / Press

"Opening with the understated ramalama of ‘Babalon’, ‘Raised On Synthetic Bitch Milk’ presented a dynamic 11-song set that contained an impressive succession of highlights – ‘BCG’, a Juxtaposition of melodic bubblegum vocal and double timed metal tinged mania that skitters into a full frontal sonic attack; the escape velocity twisted nerve lumber punch of the pounding, rhythmic ‘Simple People’; ‘3 Bottles’ – an irresistible fusion of velocity and melody that roars in like the Au Pairs on crank; the harrowing and miasmic ‘Domestic’; and ‘Knee Jerk Reaction’, a Kennedys’ style pell mell stormer. There’s no fat here, the album fittingly encapsulates what the band describe as their “sleazy, off tune, edgy, political, witchy, PMS fuelled take on old school riot grrrl punk” with imaginative cadences, bravura vocals (imagine if Siouxsie had genuine range and depth) and artful construction."

"Every second of your performance sent my body into shock" Pr.Ronald Hutton, PhD, Bristol Universtity

Post-gig feedback

“Reminiscent of and equally as brilliant as vanguards such as Bikini Kill and L7, with song titles such as "Nazi Bull Dyke", they're an absolute must-listen.”

“They sound like Siouxsie and The Banshees…on steroids.”

“Everyone should hear this riot grrrl band From Torquay. Lou is crazy in the best possible way and Jules is drunk in the best possible way!”

“The woman has a voice to die for... Simple, but effective”

"High quality gritty punk rock that will satisfy all sub-genres of the punk scene as the no-nonsence lyrics are matched by the no-nonsense music. It's fast, it's furious, it's catchy and it's meaningful and true.."
