From JUICE Magazine-
"We predict that You Know Who (featuring members of The Dwarves, Mondo Generator and Excel) will be the next new soundtrack in regular rotation over the deathbox at your next pool skating session. For fans of Motorhead, Discharge, Beowulf, Bl’ast and savage skate/rock/metal, You Know Who grinds out vicious ampage for the ultimate stoke. This fast and furious powerhouse trio is a perfect combination of the superior skills of Mike Pygmie, Dylan Brown and Greg Saenz. You Know Who’s debut album, available October 13th from Self Destructo Records, will be released in collector’s edition hand-numbered white and black vinyl complete with silk-screened graphics by Casey Howard."
"You Know Who out of Palm Desert are a three piece, high energy in your face bad ass band! The band consists of Greg Saenz on drums, Dylan Brown on bass, and front man Mike Pygmie on guitar and vocals. Whats that? You recognize the name Pygmie! Of course you do, he spends his free time playing in the legendary Mondo Generator fronted by Nick Oliveri (Queens Of The Stone Age) and also bass for John Garcia (Kyuss). With that being said You Know Who has automatic street cred. But don’t kid yourself, YKW makes a statement with their debut album that puts them right up there with the likes of Mondo Generator, Kyuss and many other stoner rock legends. What is really rad about this band is that they are not just another Kyuss rip off. In fact their up tempo riffs and precision is more on the thrash side. On October 16th through Self Destructo Records YKW will drop its debut full length to the world of Rock N Roll that desperately needs a band like them. The 11 song bone crushing LP is a must buy and may be my early pick for rock album of 2015.... HIGHLIGHTS-
The absolute blistering three song start. From the get go this album shreds with “Napoleon Blownapart.” The break down at 1:53 is a total ball buster. The Pygmie shred is in full affect. “Save Me Jebus” immediately follows with a guest appearance by the one and only John Garcia (Kyuss). The boys then slam right into “Marshall Stacks & Alcohol.” This high energy punk outburst really shows again the guitar magic of Pygmie.
2. If you survived the first three tracks then track four titled “Wastoid” featuring Nick Oliveri will finish you off. Highlighted by a sing along chorus this track is the perfect soundtrack for all you folks needing a wake up song or to realize you still have a pulse.
3. Track 11 titled “Recycler” is probably my favorite track on the record. The intro brings back the oldschool thrash sound in the vein of Megadeth. The musicianship is nothing but top notch. Greg, Dylan and Pygmie absolutely crush it. For all you music jocks who can only listen to complicated and shit that takes talent you will be stocked. Yeah, I’m talking to you guy who loves Rush and can’t be bothered with simplicity like The Ramones. The breakdown is a soulful twist that sinks right into your got reminding that you should probably have a beer and enjoy the masterpiece this band just gave you. This song is also accompanied by yet another stellar vocal guest. Sean Wheeler (Throw Rag) lends his raspy whiskey town voice to the track"
