"a Pogues-like mix of disarray and beauty, a Shack-esque ear for melody and a Bad Seeds intensity"

Gloriously out of step with everything else going on today, pitched
somewhere between the right side of boisterous and the wrong side of
unruly. Their sound is almost impossible to label, taking in a Pogues-like mix of disarray and beauty, a Shack-esque ear for melody and a Bad Seeds intensity (with some added vigorous skiffle for good measure). Add to the mix three fantastic, distinctive voices and the result is the best new band in Manchester at the moment. Someone, surely, will sign them soon (Shaun Curran - City Life) - City Life


"a passionate, smoke-roughened gritty-white-soul voice and devilishly incisive words"


“I’m getting Balkan folk, DIY 80s proto-indie, spaghetti westerns, dirty
soul, gypsy-punk, 2-Tone, west end musicals, skiffle, drunken waltzes… they’re like those bands from the immediate aftermath of punk who chucked all the rules (including punk’s) out the window” (Louder Than War) - Louder Than War


"supreme musical eclecticism"

It’s like that legendary Sex Pistols moment when Steve Jones tells reviewers that ‘we’re not into music we’re into chaos’

Frazer King have updated this they are into the music and the chaos

There is no way you can define them. No way. It’s definitely not indie.
It’s a mental cross between Doo wop, polka, yiddish folk songs played by the Pogues with sort of the Happy Mondays zig zagging attitude (they don’t sound like the Happy Mondays though- it’s just that there is this sense of chaos but also a supreme musical eclecticism that both bands share in very different ways - John Robb - Blog
