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

"riddled with that much debasement and wanton gleeful destruction that your ears will need to be immediately quarantined - you're caught in Black Mekon's clutches forevermore. Ah well - total corruption does look like a hell of a lot of fun" Sonic Masala

"With dirty drums routed through a fuzzbox, Black Mekon make gut wrenching blues finessed with all the sadistic charm of trio of sociopaths. It’s honky-tonk for criminals and degenerates" BrumNotes

"Blues riffs collide spectacularly with overdriven distortion and a punk attitude. Even at their tamest, Black Mekon are one of the most formidable live acts you’ll catch sight of" Counteract Magazine


"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 

“Cherry 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

“If 60’s surf music met Phil Spector while shooting the breeze with Lou Reed and Nico then the result would probably end up something like Birmingham base duo Cherry Pickles” Halfway 2 Nowhere

“With the gothic roadhouse treatment on the guitar many moments here could belong in ‘Wild At Heart’ era Lynch. Touched by Elvis, but darker, and with a nihilistic joy de vivre. There’s a Catholic sense of bad behavior and ‘shock/schlock’ but it’s playful, not maliciously harmful disobedience. Cherry Pickles should be invited to the party, not because of their style – but because of the substance, smarts and wit that they so clearly hold" Popbollocks
