The Simmertones - Something For The Weekend

Praise for The Simmertones: “These guys are bloody roasting!” – Roddy Radiation Byers, The Specials

“A cool mix of impressive self-penned tunes & stomping cover versions” – Kevin Flowerdew, Do The Dog Records

“The Simmertones’ performances are full of verve and creativity that underscore a keen understanding of and deep respect for the musical genre they are operating within (…) Be sure to keep The Simmertones on your radar, this is a terrific debut and we can only hope that there’s much more to come” – Duff Guide to Ska

“It’s a sign of the quality of this record that it’s not always immediately clear which are their own compositions and which are covers(…) Get it while it’s hot because this one’s a scorcher (…) Pure genius!” – Scootering Magazine

“The Simmertones are beyond upbeat and you’d have to be comatose to not find your foot tapping to their horn-heavy take on the Dr Who theme – 5/5” – Big Cheese Magazine

“Lots of harmonies and traditional Jamaican sounds; horns aplenty, luscious organs and a no worries vibe” – Punktastic.com

”In the studio with these guys is up there with my Island Sessions” – Richard Digby Smith, Island Records
