”A Daddy Long Legs show is equal parts roots rock, blues and guttural soul, stripping down old standards and making them shiny and new again. Some of the originals are like an all-out spiritual revival, while others are hauntingly beautiful.” -AltDaily

”What Daddy Long Legs unleashed upon these cynical ears was nothing short of masterwork. A shot in the dark of the deep trembling heart of rock’n’roll, all desperation and harmonica short-fuse mess-around, blowing yr ears, yr speakers, yr very rhythmic pulse, whoopin’ and stompin’ from the get-go, going deep down into yr soul and pulling you into frenzy, wailing the chug a chug and chug a lug, spilled beer on the barroom floor while you kick and shimmy the slide on down to Satan’s very personal lounge, the sound of the damned and the sound of the “we don’t give a damn”, because the shack is open 24-7 and we’re gonna grind the latest morning and the deepest night, blow, baby, blow, the train is haulin’ and we’re in the caboose, the back end of respected society, hootin’ it up to the end of the line.
Best Record Of The Year!”-Big Rock Candy Mountain

”In addition to a deliciously unhealthy dose of harmonica, this Brooklyn trio’s electrifying backwater blues is rounded out by primal drums and guitar, which leaves room for singer Daddy Long Legs to belt out his musical sermon.”
– The Most Interesting Academy -Dos Equis

”these drunken cowboys with fuzzy mics and rip-roaring harmonica solos are the most authentic band you’ve seen all week.”- Esquire (sxsw 2015)

“a trio of characters forging rock n’ roll spectacle for the eyes and ears, hearkening back to when troubadours drank moonshine and took their role as entertainers more seriously. – The Deli NYC

“the next step in the evolution of pagan Rock ‘n’ Roll” – Kim Fowley
