"Produced by Ken Lewis, whose credits include work with David Byrne and Public Enemy, Johnny Socko delivers a schizophrenic band to its fully realized form. Listen for an array of cinematic transitions, with the action moving to and from pop-rock to hip-hop. At a time when most rock-rap efforts suggest a marriage of Korn and N.W.A., Johnny Socko embodies the modern spirit of Cheap Trick and Biz Markie." - David Lindquist, Indianapolis Star

"Make no mistake, Johnny Socko is a stunning achievement. It�s cram-packed with different sounds and moods.
The band says it prided itself on its versatility in the kind of songs played, but found a new unity of purpose in how they played them." - Steve Hammer, NUVO Weekly
"How many bands have played over a thousand shows and toured 40 states in their own tour bus? They�ve sold 26,000 records on their own. That kind of stuff is what got me interested in them at the beginning. The amazing music is what kept me working with them." - Ken Lewis, producer
