Spring 2005:

DJ MAGAZINE - “Ralph Myerz has lost none of his charm…4/5”

SUNDAY TIMES - “Pleasingly sleazy.”

MIXMAG - “Sexier than Neve Campbell and Denise Richards snogging in Wild Things. 4/5”

BENT - “You NEED to go and buy a copy of this.”

MUSIC WEEK - “The best kept secret in Balearica.”

DMC UPDATE - “4/5”

FUTURE MUSIC - “Immerse yourself in it.”

 

And here's a review from the show at Wireless Festival (Hyde Park, London):

GUARDIAN - “Their beserk set, laden with heavy basslines and pounding rhythms, had wit, stle and self-concious humour.”

MAGAZINE COMMENT:

DJ
“Dirty Harry, a little dub and a doth to Morricone. Special indeed.”

Seven
“Dreamy downtempo pop music,but beneath lies something sleazy and sinister.Imagine the soundtrack for wife-swapping on the Shetland Isles and you’re getting close.”
