- Uncle Monty, who sent in this listing, sez the RedGills play "99% original material, low budget, beer-drinkin', foot-stompin', good-timin' music. Uneducated fans refer to us as bluegrass. Recorded everything in various barns in Geneva, NY. We'll pl
ay for a hundred bucks and free beer. Currently reforming rythmn section. Will be faster, sleeker, more able to leap tall silos in a single bound. We'd love to host any band that's swingin' through Buffalo. Check out The Steam Donkeys when they play i
n your town."

"I particularly liked 'Cows Don't Care', which has a percolating groove and funny lyrics, and the twangy 'Hillbilly Bill'. These guys should have the Rongo dance floor filled in no time."
- Buffalo News 5/10/96 by Anthony Violanti.
"Country rock with a touch of redneck fun...'Shine th' light' bounces along like a truck on the interstate highway. 'Masochistic, Tenn.' is twangy, banjo-laced spoof, and the Gills rock with energy on the offbeat 'Swiss Miss'. Not a lot of polish or p
roduction here, but a lot of fun."
- Upstart Records (Rig-Rock Deluxe) by Glenn Dicker
" I liked it. Funny stuff. Keep in touch and let us know when you're playing in Boston."
