BLACK MEKON
“A frenzied assault of dirty drums, scuzzy sharp guitars, scratchy vocals and tons of attitude" Louder Than War

"With an oppressive low end and moments that crash and briefly obliterate all other noise, they've got muscle aplenty" Pitchfork

"If you like anything by Jon Spencer, John Dwyer, Johnny “Guitar” Watson, Johnny Paycheck, John(ny) Cash or scuzzy rock by any Jon Doe, Dick or Harry, you need to get your dirty mits on that Black Mekon album. Long live the new Godzillas of garage rock!” With Guitars

“They sound like Bob Dylan covering Coachwhips and unquestionably make you soil your pants" Noisey

CHERRY PICKLES 

 Pickles is the soundtrack to a John Waters film where the pool party scene features Mink Stole and Divine sipping exotic cocktails and talking to David Lynch and Bruce Campbell while Dennis Hopper floats on an inflatable Cadillac inhaling oxygen and Elvira hides in the shade" Joyzine

“Old school Crampsish rockabilly groove, the vocal is drawled, the drums play a broken hearts and switchblades groove and the guitars are rockabilly, surf and spaghetti western twang, it’s just cool. All twang and flotsam" Fighting Boredom

“Sounding a little like a Shangri-Las song written on a guitar that’s falling apart” The Line of Best Fit
