“Rock Control is nothing if not fun: 30 minutes of fun-before-fashion bop-along guitar rock that recalls Warhol contemporaries T. Rex, The Kinks, and maybe some Beatles for good measure...Put ’em together with Squaaks’ warehouse of guitar hooks...and Rock Control‘s a fine ride. It’s an exciting take.”

-Michael Byrne (City Paper, 9/26/07)

- Baltimore City Paper



“The band’s description of their own sound as ‘visceral guitars, driving rhythm and catchy melodies’ is right on the money. Part sixties garage rock, part eighties post-punk, their new album Rock Control is filled with songs that are lighthearted and catchy."

"You think you're going to hear the standard pop tunes all the way through, but Squaaks tweaks their sound a little on each song leaving you off balance, but craving more. They're risk takers...and it pays off in the end. In 2007 they released Rock Control on Flatmeat Records. I suggest you go get it!" -(http://pastaprima.blogspot.com/, 01/08/08) - Pasta Primavera


"Damn good and energetic live."
-Al Shipley (City Paper 4/4/08) - City Paper
