Jacob Yates & The Pearly Gate Lock Pickers - Luck

“Dirty, but melodic, great. The Yates’ know how rock ‘n’ roll should sound!” – Kowalskiy

“Single of the Fortnight. 5 stars. ‘Can’t Stop’ is all tumbling drums, twangy chords and plonking piano from the ex-Uncle John and Whitelock boys. They call it ‘doom-wop, and who are we to argue?” – The List

“Outrageous Glasgow Rock ‘n’ Roll teleported from the Fifties dance halls and replete with the colourful language and humour of the city...You will not be dissappointed“ - Artrocker

"Tinged with the street preaching madness of an early years Nick Cave, Lovatt‘s gritted storytelling and red raw delivery is truely one of the cities most exhilarating thrills" – Drowned In Sound

"’Can’t Stop’ will invite comparisons with Nick Cave. There’s a definitely exciting air of menace about Yates’ vocal and the crunching garage-rock guitar riffs and bluesy piano give the song an unstoppable energy” – The 405

She's Hit - Pleasure

“Fantastically energetic indie punk from a band who sound like the ungodly sons of The Cramps and the Jesus & Mary Chain. One Day all bands will be made this way” – The Devil Has The Best Tuna

“Raw, trashy post-punk in honest thrall to The Fall. It’s great” – The List

"It doesn’t come a lot better than this: a massive wall of noise constructed from prefabricatedslabs of Jesus and Mary Chain, Suicide and The Cramps. Shrill guitar, deep, pounding drums and mono-toned vocals drenched in reverb are the basic components! So what’s not to like?!“ - Artrocker

"Visceral quartet She’s Hit have definitely hit the button. A spewing throb of clanging guitar and bombastic percussion, their nasal art-punk endeavours sneer out like The Fall sodomising The Cramps at their most ragged. She’s Hit will outlast the blogosphere’s hype." – Drowned In Sound

"She’s Hit create a stunning sound.. It’s so dirty you want to roll around in it in some display of base animalism. It’s unashamedly noisy but utterly irresistible” – The 405
