Two Reviews From UK Rock Magazine

The first for 'Crime Don't Pay OK' which is quite complimentary: "Energetic", "Harmonica drenched R&B" so that's nice.
The second is for 'The Car's The Star' which descibes our songs as "oddities" and "eyebrow raising anomalies". Oh yes, that's going on the poster!
