I like what the guys are doing, heavy guitars, pounding drums, vocal hooks. Kinda Ramones meets Motorhead, The Exploited and Nirvana! They're good, very powerful. I'm still listening and it's getting better and better.

"NOTHING'S frontman was a natural. He had a great way with the audience that involved constant communication even when he was not singing. It drew everyone in, kept the attention on the band and he even got them waving their arms to a song near the end. The performance had bags of energy, and a tough edge to it too – no bubble-gum punk here. For me, if you caught these guys having a good day with their gear then they’d be hard to beat when it comes to playing this kind of music."

"NOTHING hailed from Hertford and wouldn’t let us forget it! I won’t repeat what was said about their home town, but the point is that these guys were in our faces from the word ‘go’ giving us equal doses of enthusiastic banter from the frontman and lashings of energetic American Punk in the vein of The Offspring. One of the guitarists even descended into the crowd complete with Epiphone SG at one point. No chance of crowd-surfing on this night, but the interaction with the audience was there for all to see.
I’ve already alluded to the high energy levels, but the musicianship was sound too and it needed to be as the singer/guitarist suffered some technical faults about three-quarters through the set that saw him discard not one, but two guitars en-route to getting the problem fixed.
All in all this was a gutsy performance, and like a cheeky little brother pestering his older sibling for attention, NOTHING weren’t going to go away until they got what they wanted."

"All I can say is 'Thank God for NOTHING'. This band are way too young to remember how my generation felt when the Sex Pistols and The Clash changed the world for us. Nevertheless this old punk rocker's heart got an amphetamine rush from NOTHING'S set. They play with heart and commitment. And with guts. But best of all, they're one of the few new punk outfits who seem to get the fact that the original punk bands had brilliant, perfect pop songs; that it was always about so much more than shouting. Think Buzzcocks, think Clash and Stiff Little Fingers and you've got something like NOTHING."

"On the several times I have seen NOTHING they never fail to impress, with catchy guitar rifts and cutting vocals they take you right back to the Punk explosion of 1977, definitely worth checking out!"
