Some Press Quotes...

"...While we're on a winning streak, let's jump the pond and spin the accurately named On Fire! The Wildcards, formed from the wreckage of the exciting UK band the Nightporters, are essentially part Nick Curran, part Red Devils---that is, true jump and blues sounds played with capital-letter Attitude and tons of talent. Great guitar tones, killer beats, and (have I mentioned?) attitude make this self-release disc a real contender."
Blues Revue magazine, USA, issue 94 June/July 2005

"...This is a band with the individual skills and collective creativity to take the music to a new higher level. There isn't a better backline in Britain and you'll not hear better guitar interplay than that achieved by Martin and Vince, a great platform for the latter to show his world-class palying and singing. I think of The Wildcards as a fusion of the best of American and British styles: a robust blend of West-Coast rhythms, Mississippi deep blues, cool jazz and that heady Gene Vincent rockabilly thing. It's not only artistically satisfying, it's pretty darned exciting to listen to!"
Blues In Britain magazine, UK

"The bands incorporation of rock-a-billy, swing and the Blues certainly brings to mind Reverend Horton Heat, but this British act are far more imaginative - putting together a marvellously diverse collection of songs that show a creative edge all too many UK Blues acts seem to lack. This deserves to achieve big things for the band."
Blues Matters! magazine, UK - issue 24 - Feb 05

"...Such acclaim would have been justified for every track of the eleven on this CD. Music of such richness and virtuosity defies easy categorisation but there is certainly something here for all shades of blues taste. The CD marks the arrival of the Wildcards as the best new prospect in years. Vince Lee is a world-class singer and guitarist, with a band to match" Blues Matters! Magazine

...It’s all there: deep blues, swing, New Orleans rhumba-style backbone-wobblers, savage rock-a-billy, plus any other hip style from the last sixty years you care to mention. But this is no reverent heritage band – they have the originality of a new Stones or Led Zep and the attack of early Dr Feelgood, along with better taste and musicianship than any of those bands. I really can’t recommend them highly enough"
