"It was a pleasure to discover this band. Don't Go Surfing!!! is only 1 Min 19 seconds long but it's absolutely superb" - Charlie Ashcroft Amazing Radio

1 min 19 seconds long. This is why punk is beautiful, Songs that last just about long enough to jump off the sofa, Run onto the street, headbutt someone and then return to the sofa. That's what punk is surely all about. Brevity and Headbutting" - Sounds Good To Me Too

"Cross Wires make pounding, highly melodic alternative rock that makes you want to punch the air like someone possessed by the spirt of Steve Albini" - SPOONFED
