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.
