“Driving slap-bass and wild banjo fuelled two sets of musical mayhem which made us dance, laugh and think a little too, Heres a band who trod the same musical landscape as the Bushburrys…Sabotabby are about fun and you will have some like it or not”
-Miles Flat, Glastonbury Music Review, England
“we are pleased to find that a band that good live could step into the rarified atmosphere of a recording studio and still do business, making splendid music without losing the humour and kicking edge that makes them so thoroughly enjoyable on stage. Heartily recommended”
