BLACKIE! "As his contemporaries gradually slide into middle-aged comfort – or worse still, introspective, nostalgic self-indulgence – Black is still applying the spark of youth that inspired him originally to whatever dramas fill his life. And the music is as good as the drama is vivid." BEAT MAGAZINE (Melb VIC)

JONNY! "When founding members of two of the finest bands to come out of the United Kingdom in the ‘90s join forces expectations are high, but as well as crafting some fine tunes Jonny shows a pair of songwriters who are clearly at ease in each others company and don’t take themselves too seriously."

NIC DALTON & HIS GLOOMCHASERS! "warm and often beautiful album" * * * * Bernard Zuel,  SYDNEY MORNING HERALD

NIC DALTON & HIS GLOOMCHASERS! "it’s all the forthcoming words and shared experiences that reign supreme on Play All Night. While the name of Dalton’s band is accurate for the most part, his method of chasing gloom is facing it head on. That makes for an album that’s draining and uplifting in equal measure, truer to life than any music you’re likely to hear all year." MESS+NOISE

WIRE! Read an interview; Doug Wallen chats to Colin Newman ahead of their show @ Corner Hotel,  Melbourne 19th Jan! THE VINE (Web) - READ!

TUMBLEWEED! "While teens the world over absorbed the distorted guitars and fuzzed-up bass from Seattle's grunge scene, Tumbleweed threw a whole bunch of weed and LSD into the mix, creating a psychedelic brand of alt-rock. This 2-CD set is a vivid time capsule of this exciting time in the band's career." RAVE MAGAZINE (Bris QLD)

NIC DALTON & HIS GLOOMCHASERS! "Sydney stalwart makes homely country-folk-album! He's one of Aussie music's many unsung heroes, making independently produced music that outshines a million expensive manufactured pop releases. Pretty darn good." RAVE MAGAZINE (Bris QLD)

NIC DALTON & HIS GLOOMCHASERS! "One-time Lemonhead and local indie legend delivers swampy folk… swampy, homespun bluegrass with a melodic backbone and breezy, ambling lyrics." * * * * ROLLING STONE

TUMBLEWEED! "As a package, it not only satisfies long-term fans, whose vinyl records are probably scratched to buggery and gummed up by ancient bongwater spills, but also serves as a fine introduction to new-comers primed by Tumbleweed’s recent reformation shows and festival appearances." MESS+NOISE

BLACKIE! "Peter Black sounds like he's having a great time. Everything from alt-country to orchestral rock makes an appearance; lots of humour, cultural references and profanities." RAVE MAGAZINE (Bris QLD)

TUMBLEWEED! "The record sounds as relevant now as ever and the remaster gives it a kick in the guts to bring the recorded quality up to scratch by modern standards. All in all a fitting tribute to a band that oughtn't be forgotten." INPRESS MAGAZINE (Melb VIC)
