"The Brother Brick album "A Portable Altamont" is all about indefatigable chaos! They are a band to be reckoned with, they know all those vague regions where dancing to the backbeat of the times becomes the obsession rather than the depression. This album is 12 executions of a demented, street flecked nonchalance. "Chip On My Shoulder" is the Sex Pistols meet Nirvana and jam their way to oblivion... "Rock'n'roll Marie" is the high octane teenage rock'n'roll anthem... "Chokito Bar" with its cool lyrics, proves that these long haired rock'n'roll dudes are no dumbos... and "Beyond My Hands", the apex of an awesome sound document, is sublime songwriting and guitars, with a haunting cataclysm of twisted emotion and wah wah pedal action!"
