" There aren't many original bands in the UK Alternative music scene who have grabbed my attention recently, but Gasfoodlodging were a welcome exception. With their foundations of influence assembled from various artists, Neil Young, The Clash, Jimi Hendrix, The Replacements and Lou Reed spring to mind, they cleverly manage to deliver a unique sound on their debut LP with a very strong collection of original songs. Watch this space as they say....." - Amanda Summers, VM Promotions.
" I thoroughly enjoyed their debut LP containing a raw blend of Americana fused with British Indie rock. With the songwriting talent and expressive guitar playing of David Griffiths at their helm, it's a band that could comfortably stick out from the crowd as they move forward" - Daniel Simmons, beardedmagazine.com
"In a culture of modern guitar bands where the screaming of uninspired music has become rife, Gasfoodlodging are positively refreshing. - Aaron Jaques, PMCJ Events.
