“Tight instrumental arrangements are the foundation throughout. The horn section rules on many of the arrangements; Pacheco can play as wild and raucous as ever. Guitarist Coleman opens “Please Be A Ninja” with a powerful buzzsaw riff that leads into Lagrimas’ driving drum beats. Bassist Lee gets a short but well-deserved solo on “Man You Missed Out.” Pimpbot goes “unplugged” with the final song, “Beer and Homies.” It’s arranged and produced to sound like a bunch of semidrunk guys sitting around drinking and singing, and shows that the group still has a sense of humor. Watch it become a popular audience participation number at their shows.”
“Pimpbot’s new, self-titled album features more of the entertaining song titles fans have grown to love. Starting with “Meet You at the Bar” and moving into “Hobo Chili” and “Zombie Fasi,” they keep things interesting throughout the 10 tracks on the CD, finishing strong with songs like “Please be a Ninja” and “Beer and Homies.””
“PIMPBOT is anything but gentle or pop; the band's ska-rock is punchy, memorable, and full of North Shore, local-boy attitude. – Margaret Moser, The Austin Chronicle”
“Songs like this remind us that these are just normal guys with abnormal talent, who happen to realize that even the most mundane occurrences of everyday life can be an adventure.”
“PIMPBOT pump out a unique brand of schizophrenic ska/punk that welds chilled out saxophone solos with full on reggae infused thrash rock.”
“Of course, lead singer Fernando Pacheco didn't disappoint, turning in a high-energy set that illustrated exactly why the band called this trip the "Muy Caliente Tour 2009."”
“And when I needed to rock out, I listened to Pimpbot's "Admit One"”
"True Indy warriors and pioneers these Pimpbot guys. A smart lean and mean ska machine, that's Pimpbot. Other young indie bands take notice, this is how you do it."
"A Pimpbot show is a sight to behold"
"Pimpbot proved that they're well worth the price of admission"
"Pimpbot is the kind of band mothers tell their daughters to stay far away from, and advise their sons to stay away from joining"
"Don't knock the rock... you'll find creative boldness from Pimpbot"
"The added instruments make the group credible when playing ska as well as when they're rocking hardcore punk."
“Pimpbot and Make the Change showed the crowd exactly why live is always better than tape. Hell, they didn’t even have to dress as zombies.”
