24/7 Magazine (Nov 2009): "Plymouth's The Waterboarders dedicate themselves to reminding people of how good '50's/'60's instrumental surf rock'n'roll was by doing a bunch of cover versions of songs that you'll know when you hear them (Dick Dale's 'Misirlou', The Chantay's 'Pipeline', Pixies' 'Cecilia Ann') alongside others that you probably wouldn't recognise so easily (The Swiv-O-Matics' 'She Walks on Bars'). The musicianship is gloriously rudimentary and the recording defiantly lo-fi - which is, of course, a bonus with this kind of garage groove - with echoes of The Cramps at their gnarliest (minus the sleazoid vocals). All told, a loving and loyal rendition of an era that time forgot."
