“‘If jerry Dammers and Terry Hall had grown up listening to world music, The specials might have sounded very like the Baghdaddies.’” — Nigel Williamson – Uncut Magazine July 2010
“‘The band have a particular flair for the Balkans and capture its frenetic energy and flamboyance wonderfully. There is also a fair share of klezmer, jazz, ska and punk – an anarchic fusion where Ivo Papasov meets The Clash meets The Beat’ ” — Songlines Magazine
