"Live Review"

“Partly because of some impressive support slots, Distractors are a band about whom molten murmurs of greatness have emerged” Johnnie Craig – Issue 69 - In Dublin


“One of the reasons I love doing this show is being the first to discover and play music like that, I expect were going to hear a lot more from that song(Last Stand) and Distractors in general.”
