The meanest, the baddest, the toughest single ever!
"Dirty lo-fi punk straight outta Brisbane, with furious drum beats and guitars strummed so hard you can almost hear the plectrums snapping. The backing vocals are also pretty hilarious, simultaneously whined and bleated and snarled, as though the melody was something to be strangled to death and spat on. I mean that in a good way. Beasts Of England kicks arse." Beat Magazine, 2012.
"As long as there are garages there will always be garage rock, and as long as there is rock of any kind, the long, deep shadow of British Invasion pop will be cast over it. Beasts Of England is an invitation to travel back in time and across the sea to where it all began. “Won’t you come to the land of the killers and nightclubs so we can save you from all the guns and knives in our old town in the night.” That does not sound like the most tempting tourist advertisement in the world when you write it down in dry words on a page, but when the Running Gun Sound man drawls it out like Mick Jagger over a couple of duelling guitars and brash backing vocals, then you can sign me up and we will go and watch the mods and the rockers face off on the dance floor and laugh at how crazy those people in the past were with their tight pants and floppy fringes, man, how things have changed." Jody MacGregor, Rave Magazine, 2011.
