    I first heard the single when in the UK - grabbed the record when it just came out last week. these guys do not disappoint - their sound is tribal, dark, blues with an alternative rock edge. the production kicks ass - by the guy who worked on The Colour, Modest Mouse, Kings of Leon and Tom Waits

    i just picked this up after a friend's suggestion - killer riffs, heavy jams, an overall balls out record with a lot of depth.

    Totally unpretentious, down and dirty weirdness that rocks, surprises and beguiles. Great b/w garage video on their web page.

    This rough and ready British garage-punk band punps out a series of spirited songs on this thier second album. Blasting forth with acerbic guitar led rock 'n' roll and passing on the pop hooks of bands like Franz Ferdinand and The Arcitc Monkeys, their acid tongued lyrics examine the usual ground of the male - female dynamic especially on the vitriolic Gang of Four influenced This rough and ready British garage-punk band punps out a series of spirited songs on this thier second album.

"Kink" channels the raw energy of it's namesake's early singles with some slashing dave Davies style guitar throuwn in to boot. Expand

    An 11-song set that's melodically insidious and swings like a noose. [Apr 2006, p.90]
  2. It's a journey through the West Country trio's brand of infectious bluesy garage rock and evocative of a head on collision between The Kills and the Arcade Fire.
  3. New Musical Express (NME)

    It's one drawn-out primal scream that goes from dark and broody to blissed-out drone. [11 Mar 2006, p.43]
