"Kings of A&R"

Exciting, in-your-face rock n’ roll that derives from such bands as Guns N’ Roses, Jane’s Addiction, The Strokes, Foo Fighters.

"Skratch Magazine"

The Smashup is a NYC-based rock outfit whose latest two-track release reaffirms the fact that rock 'n' roll is alive and well in the Big Apple, no matter what anyone else says. With a cocky swagger and armed with hooks galore, The Smashup bring back the balls-to-the-wall attitude a lot of the music today is sorely lacking while still remaining current. Get a taste for yourself and re-sell your soul to rock 'n' roll.

"Poison Quill Zine"

Versatility in sound has been a focus that not too many bands these days can pull off without a hitch.Most bands seems to center their sounds in a specific genre (i.e. PUNK, HARDCORE, HIP-HOP, etc...). Breaking away from any defined genre and creating a sound melange is quite an exquisite form of audio reproduction, so-to-speak. Through minor research I found The SmashUp, a NYC band that ultimately devoids genre speculation. Listening to the song Pressure, I got an inbreeding somewhere between The Clash's London Calling, and The FooFighters. Two bands who, in my opinion, rock harder than cock itself. The second song, Rachel's Day, has a harder, more Megadeth-driven edge. Heavy guitar riffs with a nice hint of spoken word and skate-core to drive the sound into one's ears. Bands like, The SmashUp, are definitely paving the way for other ecclectic cross-genre bands.Without a doubt this band should be heard. - Poison Quill Zine
