Husbands N Knives / Press

"..If you have never experienced punk rock riot grrrl style, then the latest album from Husbands n Knives is certainly one of the best places to start. Virosa Ebriosa is slick, sexy and riddled with occultism. An album that hails the power of both woman and witch. From track one ‘Youre One’ right through to ‘Train of Stars’ it is clearly dedicated to the Goddess Babalon…But don’t be fooled this is not some girlie fantasy, this is proper hard core punk! It sings of oppression, rebellion, lust, the rage of the woman that fuels them. ..."

Diane Narraway - The Dolmen Grove Chronicles

"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.."
