      The Black Watch

      "With a vocal styling rivaling Robert Smith's, John Andrew Fredrick writes the dreamiest pop songs this side of My Bloody Valentine. Guitar slinger/other vocalist Steven Schayer (ex-The Chills) adds just the right amount of six string freakout and Beatlesque harmony. An L.A. treasure!"--Pop Matters "the black watch merits acclaim for such a strong album [Led Zeppelin Five] far into its career. At its best, it displays an enviable command of loud, crunchy guitar-based pop rock, not too sweet, not too sour."--Pop Matters "For a variety of reasons, I am a big fan of Led Zeppelin Five. The words and music combine to form one of those perfect storm records--when the music sings, the lyrics bite--and when the music threatens, the words soothe."--BlogCritics "Even the slower tracks don't diffuse the momentum; LZ5 boasts the kinds of lustre and allure that continue to make TBW tick."--No Depression "Steven Schayer is an extraordinary addition to a band that melds shoegaze, post-punk and jangle-pop in a masterly way."--LA Buzz Bands "It's astonishing that a band as concerned with quality control as California's the black watch could go for this long with the following the size of a kitchen sponge. They are a literary/melodic marvel--a real treasure, for more than those who merely seek out obscure pop bands who started in the late 80s."--Trouser Press
