Watts "make a superb retro rock ‘n’ roll racket," says Rob Forbes (Leicester Bangs). A dynamic four-piece aptly named for the gentleman drummer of the Rolling Stones, Watts' sound combines all the best elements of '70s glam, old school punk, new wave, British Invasion and straight up rock-n-roll to create a timeless amalgam that is at once familiar and fresh. The band was recently named one of 2008's "Bands You Must Hear" by the UK's Classic Rock magazine, and their latest record, "One Below The All Time Low," has been receiving raves from critics worldwide since its release in September 2007.
'One Below The All Time Low' is never less than loud, proud and intelligent. It's a hugely satisfying treat for anyone still in love with classic US pop-rock and enough to quicken even the most jaded fan's pulse. -Whisperin' and Hollerin'
Watts is a very cool four-piece from Boston who manage to let their classic rock and roll influences like The Stones and the Cars mutate with the sounds of the Strokes and the Clash for a wonderfully rough but harmonic blast of rock and roll. -The Rock And Roll Report
A riot of early ’70s Stones-style garagey riffs, all rip-roaring and ready to raise hell. -The Metro
This is how rock albums should sound. No posturing, no excess, just proper songs played with ballsy abandon...these guys make a superb retro rock ‘n’ roll racket. -Leicester Bangs
