The Great Dismal Swamis / Press

“GREAT DISMAL SWAMIS, THE: Self-titled: 7” EP Surfy, garagey, snotty, rocking awesomeness, from Norfolk, VA, that makes ya wanna shake it. Limited pressing of three hundred. By the time y’all read this, it will probably have sold out. I got mine. The rest of yous will have to hope for a second pressing. –Jackie Rusted (Fandango)”

“THE GREAT DISMAL SWAMIS- S/T- RZO RECORDS- Quartet from Richmond, VA who crank up the noise on this debut cd. 12 songs go by in blur with some supreme fuzzed-out guitar work and a general attitude of snottiness. If Ken at Dirtnap Records is looking for a new ban to sign he could do a lot worse than this bunch.”

“ (RZO) Snotty, hard-hitting gar(b)age rock with some masked elements, and absolutely impressive innovative slang for acts of sex and violence (and if I could figure out what a "Canadian Tuxedo" was I might get arrested for doing it). The swampiest swamis I've ever swam upon! This is exactly how good and bad I want and expect my rock n roll to be”

“GREAT DISMAL SWAMIS, THE: Self-titled: CD This is a solid load of two- to three-minute punk’n’rollers from Virginia Beach. Debut album features good vocals and solid playing all around. “Death Mansions” is a mover. “Way Down” uses the big beat. “Loch Ness Lightning” uses the Chuck Berry riff. Check. Check. Check. –Billups Allen (thegreatdismalswamis.bandcamp.com)”
