"Lock up your mothers, The Bandits are in town" - Mojo Magazine

Proper hard edged rock 'n' roll at 100 miles an hour. Machine gun guitars, vocals that can cut concrete, a rhythm section as tight as constipation and blood will flow. Bad Bob Bates, Brad Dolphin, and Whalebone Pete grab rock, blues and punk by the scruff of the neck, shake it about a bit, slip it a Micky Finn, then throw it on stage at just about any venue that'll have them.

You'll never look at a band in the same way again - and might need a bit of help getting home.

"We're not all bad" - says Whalebone. No-one's arguing.

"I'm still recovering, and trying to get the stains out" - Esther Rantzen
