"Like the moniker, these fretboard-demons are incredibly tight, and this debut is ripe listening for those with an appetite for a scuzz/melody dichotomy. 4/5" - The List
"There is barely an ounce of fat on debut album Party Feel: a wild-eyed odyssey encompassing all manner of weird and wonderful sounds. 4/5" - The Skinny
“If anyone out there is doing research into what it was like hanging out in some of St. Helens’s better squats just before acid house kicked off, then this record should give them all the sonic info they need. Being the sort of town where even housebreakers and sex criminals knew that the best Zappa tracks are the ones with the most key and time signature changes and even your milkman loves listening to the Cardiacs while hoofing poppers, this album recreates those heady days perfectly.” - Vice Magazine
“What you get is a variously disorientating, draining and divine hybrid of Don Caballero, Larks’ Tongues In Aspic-era King Crimson and the more obtuse side of Battles, a molten, miasmic melange of skittering guitar figures, pulsing polyrhythms and arpeggios that dance skywards like lightning bolts in reverse.” - The Herald
