"They inhabit that nebulous middle ground between country, bluegrass and whatever it is that Tom Waits does." - Monday Magazine

"Long-time favourites in their native Victoria, BC, these fun-loving, self-described 'pseudo-middle-aged guys' play the kind of music tailor-made for the Canadian folk festival circuit. These are self-effacing acoustic tunes that are easy on the ears, with just enough hints of bluegrass to show off each member's prowess on their chosen instrument." - Exclaim! Magazine "Wood, Wires and Whiskey" CD reviews February, 2010

Victoria's kings of "enviro-cowboy lounge music" continue their Stereo Bang Bang CD release tour with a stop at the Duncan Garage Showroom. Their smokin' new songs have been receiving airplay on CBC Radio's North By Northwest, All Points West and campus stations such as CHLY and Village 900. In fact the band was recently interviewed in the Times Colonist, Monday Magazine and by all three Victoria TV stations. For the new CD, "Stereo Bang Bang", the band stuck to their goal of capturing the feeling of a live-off-the-floor sound. Recorded in Mike Regimbal's home studio, the new album features eleven originals and two covers: Tom Waits' "Tango 'Til They're Sore" and Johnny Cash's "Let the Train Blow the Whistle." CelebHeads (the band's cult following) and new listeners alike will be right at home with the new songs: "The Road to Hollywood" is a story from the boulevard of broken dreams; "Rodeo Clown" tells the tale of a woman pursuing a non-traditional career; the mean streets of "Downtown" is spiced up with jaw harp and banjitar; "Old Lips" offers a view from the end of the line; and "What Will It Mean When You're Gone", written by Mike Raymer, is a lovely ballad that tugs at the heart strings. Contributing vocals to several songs are members of Victoria's award-winning Balkan Babes.
