"Bob Osborne"

...incredibly bluesy, full of light and shade, extremely dynamic and very good indeed. - Salford City Radio/Aural Delights

"Dick Porter"

A five-fingered statement of intent that sees the Hope/Pickford duo emerge from the Salford Delta to distil the essence of the blues down to ital firewater. - EyePlug

"Alex Lynham"

Soulful and melodic, songs to get wrecked and hit the town'll have you kicking things over just to show some fucking appreciation. 4.5/5 - What is Music?

"Chumki Banerjee"

Energetic, bluesy, grungy…this certainly is rattle and roll - Mudkiss Fanzine

"David Edwards"

‘A degree of sweetness and melodicism now emanating from the distorted of Manchester’s finest exports..4.5/5’ - Manchester Music

"Hambones' Blues Rumshack"

Some of the dirtiest sounding two man blues that I’ve heard in a long time - Hambones' Blues Rumshack

The Calimocho Club are as raw and low-rent as the drink that inspired their name.

Their debut EP 'Whoa Whoa, Hey Hey' is 13 minutes and 5 tracks of trash blues soul, recorded amidst a haze of rum, cigarettes and a desire to just get the tracks down.

The EP's roots are raw blues, pared down to the crucial bones with the 'hit 'em and hook 'em' approach of punk.

They have shared stages with fellow trash blues-smiths The Jim Jones Revue, Bob Log III, Dave Arcari and Band of Skulls, to name a few.
They have also played successful shows in Spain & the Netherlands.

The Calimocho Club have also recently signed a publishing deal with MassiveTalent (a subdivision of Massive Music) who specialise in syncs for the advertising industry, with offices in Amsterdam, New York, Los Angeles, London and Shanghai.

Gary Calimocho is endorsed by Burns Guitars London.

Recorded or live, the vein is the same.
