They have been touted by Wonderland, Clash and Earmilk as exci=ng newcomers and their set at Victorious festival was featured in The Guardian Guide. “There’s something wonderful and wilfully gleeful about 00’s Nostalgia which despite the title rather reminds me of the great jangle-fest which was the mid 80’s” – Steve Lamacq, BBC Radio 6 Music “Choppy, energy, supremely buoyant” – Clash Magazine
