'One of the best bands I ever saw, a legendary and inestimably important band, but more than that. Not so much a band as - well, more like a squad of gods. A God Squad. A full-on, balls-out God Squad of Rock.' - Todd Hanson, head writer, The Onion
'Must be how the Mothers Of Invention got started. Impressive.' - Michael St. John, Wisconsin State Journal'Funny stuff with lots of changes of pace and undeniably good musicianship' - Mike Gunderloy, Factsheet Five'After playing a zillion concerts, opening for everyone from Adrian Belew to Molly Hatchet, and getting a couple songs played on Dr. Demento... Expect the band's flair for the theatrical to produce a long, long night of requests, play-acting and drunken revelry that's not to be missed. - The Onion 'The Gomers are sure to supply a walk on the wild side... combining music and slightly demented comedy' - Carey Crouse, Bookings Collegian, SD University
'No idea is too kitsch to be skewered, no rock icon too large to be humiliated. The Gomers practically invented High Weirdness and Art Damage (on the local scene, anyway)' Art Durkee, Night Sites and Sounds'What sets the Gomers apart from others who attempt comedy in music is their sheer musical skill... This is not so much a group of entertainers and musicians, but a collection of madmen.' - Neil Yee, Badger Herald'A satirist's delight... They Might Be Giants-esque great Wisco fun... Reminiscent of Zappa's involved style parodies... Had me laughing aloud. Impressive musicianship; the antidote I needed.' - Jerome Oddbody, IL Entertainer'I heard more truly innovative music by those high-decibel humor rockers The Gomers than I'd heard in all the clubs I'd been to anywhere in the last five years' - Gary Porter, Nissan America'Rarely does one see a combo so unrestricted in their musical pursuits. I have on many occasions commented that these guys would do just about any kind of music, and do it justice' - Toni Ziemer, former manager Club de Wash and Club Underground, now with SRO Artists.
