What other people are saying...

"..the kind of balls out garage punk rock that could very well exist in 1978 at CBGB’s."

"The Creeping Ivies are one of the very few bands that manage to stay true to the essence of Garage Rock, yet merge something wonderfully strange with it."

"For any fans of Little Steven's Underground Garage or Howie Pyro's Intoxica Radio, which both feature amazing garage rock from the 50's up to the current day, will sure dig this new garage band from Scotland called The Creeping Ivies. The bands new "Rock N Roll Party EP" is 3 short burst of garage greatness made for people who find beauty in the simplicity of rock n roll."

"The band, Becca Bomb (vocals/guitar) and Duncan Destruction (drums), mix sonic rock n roll,ala The Stooges, and mix in surf guitar riffs to make one hell of ruckus"

"Becca has a seasoned vocal styling that's part Patti Smith anger, part Big Mama Thorton attitude.."

"a great beat and infectious guitar lines in the vein of Link Wray"

"Their set was a pure adrenalin rush, short, sharp tuneful shocks to the system, influenced by the rawer end of rock ‘n’ roll, garage punk and tied together with a classic, glamorous image."

"For The Creeping Ivies it’s not about nostalgia or recreating a sound but instead creating something that is utterly passionate and beautiful, full of energy and great hooks."
