Gig review in Oxfordshire Music Scene: With an onstage verve and confidence well-honed from live work, WKNJ are definitely a band worth seeking out.
Review in Suspect Device of I See Six: ...clear and dynamic sound, with the songs bringing to mind some of the music Jello Biafra has been involved with, especially Guantanamo School Of Medicine and occasionally Dead Kennedys... although they are a new band to me I am eager to hear more.
Review by AJ Phink on thepunksite.com of I See Six: [I See Six] has the same hallmarks of eloquent rage and dissent that 'Plastic Surgery Disasters' era Dead Kennedys delivered... an unpredictable, claustrophobic and original manifesto... their finest recordings to date, [an album] that sits deservedly amongst the best full lengths I’ve heard this year.
Review by Just Some Punk Songs of advance tracks from I See Six: It's always great when you hitch your wagon to a new band that you think has potential and then go on to feature them over the years as every release improves upon the last.
Interview in Safely Pin magazine, #6: When I saw [WKNJ] again about twelve months later the transformation was frankly remarkable... the energy of the band was on a totally different level.
Gig Review in Scene Sussex: I have seen these guys a few times now and I am always staggered with the ferocity and power they deliver... strap them into their instruments and they become an unstoppable force.
Review by Just Some Punk Songs of the Punish/Clown EP: ...my favourite release by them thus far... the music is bloody powerful.
Gig review in Nü Pollution #1: REEAAALLY GOOD!! That's what I call a fuckin show... and the tunes are really fuckin awesome too. Very atmospheric, lots of good storytelling in the lyrics.
Carrie from London Lens TV interviews Stefan (vocals) post-gig outside the New Cross Inn
Gig Review on FungalPunkNature.co.uk: Who Killed Nancy Johnson?... took stuff I love and took it in a different direction. I saw 80's punk mixed with the post-punk bands of the Lung, Big Black, Killdozer ilk but with a groove and rhythm seldom found in the world of punk. It might sound like arse licking but fuck it. I fucking loved their set.
Gig Review in Brighton & Hove News: I hadn’t heard this band before tonight and I have to say that I really love the sound... Stefan is a great performer and deliverer for this band... So glad I made it to this one tonight.
Gig review in Scene Sussex: These guys hit the sweet spot for me when we met in Brighton back in July 2017... the music had got harder and tougher... nowhere is 'safe' in a WKNJ set! ...[they] closed with the mighty 'Blood In The Soil'. The music soared as did the vocals as Pete did his best to plunge the room into darkness by walloping the overhead lights with his guitar. But hell yeah, that is Who Killed Nancy Johnson?
Wayne Elliott on Pulsebeat 117: Who Killed Nancy Johnson? just keep getting better.
Gig review in Brighton & Hove News: Think Wire, Dead Kennedys, Killing Joke and you’ll be somewhere in the ballpark of where WKNJ's roots lie. Ball plants himself firmly in the centre of the room commanding attention from the strays still at the bar and we’re straight into opener ‘Rothmans’... but it’s with ‘Who Killed Nancy Johnson’ that they really catch fire. ‘Pretending To Like People‘ and the rousing ‘Blood in the Soil’ finish off an amazing set. Their punk roots may be firmly in the past, but WKNJ are a bright hope for the future.
Review of Pretending to Like People off the They Reap Sessions EP, in the Just Some Punk Songs blog: It's damn good... their music is an impressive post punk barrage of jittery guitar and frantic drumming. Influences include The Stooges, The Ruts, Wire, Magazine etc., song structures are ambitious and lyrically they impress.
Review of Flat Earth Theory EP, in Lights Go Out #54: This EP is seriously well recorded, they've done a fine job there, but musically does it cut the mustard as they say? I am pleased to report that it sure does. it's powerful yet melodic and for sure this lot would be well received up Blackpool on the Rebellion line-up, if they haven't done it already of course. With a post-punk sound and a real sense of energy behind the songs I would imagine live this lot are a real decent outfit.
Review of Flat Earth Theory EP, in Issue Punkzine #95: All the tracks are quality stuff. The songs are all very different, so these guys are definitely more than a one-trick pony. They also have a good bit of "live" vitality about them and I wonder if they have actually been recorded semi-live.
