"Awesome live act! What a noize! Former Penthouse guitarist Jon Free's new band is as ferocious as you'd expect! ...more feral and wild than Jack White could dream of; Blues rhythms, Link Wray riffs, Stooges punk rock and Cramps style rockabilly leanings make this bunch absolutely Something Else!" - DIRTY WATER CLUB
