"2010 Blues Review Magazine"

With raucous performances, Fried Chicken & Whiskey delivers on the promise of its title. That track is pure funk, with a bridge borrowed from James Brown's "Sex Machine" and an Eddie Hazel guitar break. Jack Edery & UltraSuede rock chaotically on "Throw a Boogie Woogie" and "Blues Outside My Window" settling down for the Chicago-style "Blind Woman With a Gun" and the desolate slow blues, "Mr Earvin." Edery's solo acoustic blues, "Turn Me Loose in Your Kitchen" and the delicate "Memphis" (featuring producer Jimbo Mathus on guitar) create a lull before the soul romp "Knucklebuster" closes the self-released disc with greasy organ and Lonnie Mack-style guitar.

"KPFT FM Houston"

"From the deeply personal "Mr. Earvin" to the humorous "Blind Woman With A Gun", Jack Edery and his band Ultra Suede deliver an 11 track stylistic romp on their new disc "Fried Chicken and Whiskey". A flavorful showcase of his musical influences and diversity reflective of the great Golden Triangle tradition ... Beaumont blues with a twist."

"Indie-Music.Com Review"

Jack Edery & UltraSuede offer up some great blues guitar & piano sounds, with both male and female vocals. It's down and dirty fun, with clever lyrics that try to avoid the sometimes predictable nature of typical blues songs.

"Real Blues Magazine Review"

This CD kicks off in fine Texas fashion with “Blues Outside My Window”, a relentless stomper of a statement proclaiming the Power and Joy of Blues. All eleven tunes are originals and while “Throw A Boogie Woogie” is listed as a ‘Traditional’ number, everyone has their own version of it and UltraSuede’s rendition is a totally deranged, chair-breakin’ slice of good time mayhem. We get a Zydeco rocker with “Cajun Queenie” (another Shag Market dance Hit), a dirty, greasy Blues with “Good At Being Bad”, a gem that forces you to stomp your feet and an old-school Texas Blues – a la’ Lightnin’/Lil Son Jackson in “Turn Me Loose In Your Kitchen”. It’s a sound we don’t hear enough of anymore in the post-SRV era so extra kudos to Jack and Susan and the crew.
Memphis” is time-warp Southern Roots with more than a little ‘true story’ in it. We close off with “Knucklebuster”, a guitar smoker that reminds one of vintage Lonnie Mack. Nice organ too! Fried Chicken & Whiskey” is definitely one that’ll keep kickin’ ass for eternity. This one’s all about Truth, Talent and Heart. 5 Big Bottles of Thunderbird for a disc full of Texas grit.
