Girded by the raw sounds of 50s-era country, but imbued with the post-punk ferocity of The Pixies, The Famous forge powerful tunes combining the intense desperation of X, the sincere melancholy of Hank Williams Sr. and the psychobilly of Rev. Horton Heat

"The Famous arrange a standoff between the Pixies in a cowboy hat and Hank Williams on speed, six-shooters loaded with punk and rockabilly, and whaddya know - that bastard alt-country genre gets shot square in the forehead, with a stray bullet no less." 
-- West Coast Performer

"The Famous successfully combine the transcendent roar of punk with the brutal honesty and black wit of traditional country" 
-- Trouser Press

"The Famous are an American original"
-- All Music Guide

"Deep down and dirty swamp rock that breaks any perceived formula..." -- Americana-UK
