Fronted by Sam Quartin, whose vocal charisma channels some of the preposterous intensity of the Alan Vega/Cave/Cramps lineage, the band's second album is an explosion of intensity of high-concept, low-budget rock'n'roll. – UNCUT
The band show they’ve got the chops and the weirdness to refresh vintage rock, punk, and blues without the commercialism that has plagued other prominent garage bands of their generation. – CHICAGO READER
Wild, snotty, and carefree. – SHINDIG!
How many bands have you heard lately that can get away with desecrating “I’m a Man” and sound credible? It’s all in Quartin’s leering vocal and Casa’s muscular guitar. – I-94 BAR
There’s the certainty of Punk, the immediacy of Garage, the anger of those who don’t care here, ‘Move‘ is a one and a half minute snarl, but even when they show some musical chops, as on the percussive ‘Coin‘, there’s the itchiness of a freshly grown scab. – STEVE SWIFT'S ROCK REMEDY
The Bobby Lees are the giant green cyclops of rock ‘n’ roll. – BTRtoday
A breathless experience with few down tempo pauses. – The DELI NYC
GUTTERMILK : Storming to the scene with a howling sense of rebellion and nonconformity, the band’s full-fledged garage-punk sound in this song is deftly executed with raw and raucous energy. – ALTERNATIVE PRESS
GuttterMilk' is 94 seconds of feral garage punk, centered around a rumbling and propulsive baseline, thundering drumming, buzzing and slashing guitars and Quartin’s howled vocals that nods at Fever to Tell-era Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Jon Spencer‘s work with The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion. – THE JOY OF VIOLENT MOVEMENT
