The Charlie Watts Riots / Press

“Their new album, Long Story Short, will definitely be in my top 2010 list.”

“Big choruses with melody to spare, guitars that sound like jet engines, a whip-tight rhythm section, and suits fresh from the cleaners.”

“Building the night to a red-hot climax was the brash and brilliant Charlie Watts Riots, turning up the volume and the onstage energy with a blast of potent skinny-tie power-pop, much of which was drawn from their A+ debut album, “Long Story Short.” Is it too early to hail vocalist-guitarists Seth Powell and Brendan Pendergast as Albany’s own Lennon and McCartney?”

“They began the first song which took about 40 seconds to explode into a joyfully loud blast of pure power pop. Imagine Beatle-esque harmony with the punk power of the Clash mixed with the early recordings of Elvis Costello. Their music infused the room with the playful, fun, joyful feeling of the first time you discovered rock.”
