AllMusic Review by

Originally released on their own Okra label and now made easier to find from Homestead, the Gibson Bros.' debut howl is a winner...The Bros. (actually there are no brothers in this band) cough up a spooky mix of super reverb/tremelo'ed blues raunch that clatters and clangs all over the damn place. With vocals (primarily from Jeff Evans) that warble regardless of key and pitch, backed by a band that only rarely seems cognizant of staying in tune or keeping the same beat, this is truly primitive stuff, but at times exhilarating...The accent is on the blues, but this is punk-blues, post-modern 12-bar, deconstructed Bukka White, clearly not an Alligator release...By no means an easy record, the work you put into the Gibsons will pay off handsomely...
