" There aren't many original bands in the UK Alternative music scene who grab my attention at present but Gasfoodlodging stuck out at once. A great band with great original songs written by their founder Dave Griffiths. A band that truly deserves to get heard by a wider audience" - Amanda Summers, VM Promotions.
" Gasfoodlodging are a class act and one of the best unsigned bands that I've heard in recent times in the genre of Americana/Indie - Daniel Simmons, beardedmagazine.com
"Their terrific original songs resonate around the room all night long at their gigs. A pleasure to have worked with them" - Lewis Stewart, Sound Engineer.
"In a culture of modern guitar bands who seldom scream their uninspired songs in a distorted cocktail of noise, it's completely refreshing to come across a great band who obviously hold great respect for the likes of The Kinks, Chuck Prophet,The Clash, and clearly write wonderful original songs with these influences in mind. - Aaron Jaques, PMCJ Events.
