Working from the same filthy, hot coal room as The Birthday Party, Cpt Beefheart and Morphine - London-based three piece: SNACK FAMILY have been creating an unapologetic, driving sound since 2011. This is music that gets right back to the heartlands, the heart and soul and meat of the matter; music for the times we're sweating through.
"Snack Family is a creeping Rock n Roll monster, replete with gravelly drumbeats, striptease guitars and the most gut-twisting Sax we've heard in yonks..Sleazier than Waits out on the pull with the Fat White clan..." NME
"Snack Family's music oozes… An unlikely middle ground between Battles and The Birthday Party." THE QUIETUS
"If Nick Cave was the lead singer of Morphine it would have sounded like Snack Family. We dare to say that these boys will grow into a highly respected act in the underground scene." NOISEY NL

"...In recent years, English rock bands have been fashionable in appearance - immaculate leathers and a manufactured sound. It's a thrill to discover a group with a genuinely messed up sound. And the dandies end up hugging the walls when this dirty rock roars into life, which owes as much to explosions of the Birthday Party as to the unscrewed blues of Captain Beefheart...." LES INROCKS
"Seedy, swingin’ and big in the knackers department…. over a jarring, heavily rhythmic, No-Wave musical backdrop, Snack Family bring the noise and pack some beef." WHISPERIN' & HOLLERIN'
