Mandana Beigi, One Way Magazine Launchpad #19: The Bosch – Buy One, Get One

This high energy, fast-paced, pop/punk/rock quartet from New York City will rock your world and have you on your feet, dancing, jumping, and screaming before the end of the first track.

They are loud and rowdy and know exactly how to be mean and fun. The Bosch boasts a weird yet powerful sound that is probably what you would get if the Ramones and the New York Dolls were on ecstasy while having an orgy with the Violent Femmes and the White Stripes in a Quentin Tarantino movie!

Hybrid Magazine: Bargain Basement – Everyone Loves Ramone

The Bosch – Buy One Get One

Joey: Good solid pseudo-punk rock. A more pop-savvy Ramones or modernized Stooges. Awesome.
Marky: Ramones-influenced, but with their own chunky flavor. Great rhythms and drills. Cool, buddy.
Dee Dee: Loud rock that would be ablast live. Rock on!
Johnny: Fun, upbeat lo-fi with and organ.

The
Bosch – Buy One Get One EP (unsigned)

T:
So this is an ‘ep’ then is it? Not an album in any shape or
form? I only ask because it appears to have NINE whole tracks on it!
Pretty damn good stuff though. Think Violent Femmes with a sprinkling
of Ramones
topping and maybe even add a dash of Devo sauce with Radio Birdman pudding.
Maybe you’d like some Iggy and The Stooges biscuits to round things
off? This is marvellous – someone sign these guys now!

N: How about a dose of B-52s? And I guess, from the pace and feel of
this ‘album’, The Bosch obviously spend days in the studio
daydreaming of the summer, catching the surf, and watching one another’s
beehive coiffures gradually resembling an Afro as the damp summer air
takes hold. 9/10″

Mike Thomas, The Vail Daily News: Veruca Salt’s return a mini-triumph

The Bosch, “Buy One Get One”
Self-released

Stripped down garage rock with horns to boot, The Bosch knows how to have fun. A ska meets garage, meets punk vibe with easygoing, catchy lyrics and no message whatsoever, “Buy One Get One” draws comparisons to music as old as The Stooges or the Clash and as current as The White Stripes and The Vines.

What’s Up! Magazine: The Bosch Buy One Get One
by Joseph Westover

Mix fast paced, high energy poppy punk and surf with a garage sound in a way that makes you want shake the everlovin’ shit out of your cornhole, then throw in some horns and a harmonica, and you get The Bosch. Their album art says everything – a cleaning product bearing the band’s name with a snub nosed pistol for a nozzle. The Bosch is clean and wants to blow you away.

HeathenAngel (Leeds, UK): The Bosch Buy One Get One

This album/lengthy EP has found its way to HeathenAngel all the way from Virginia in the good ol US of A.

FMQB: Submodern Buzz

Late last year, a fun little album arrived on your desk from up-and-coming band The Bosch. Buy One Get One is an enjoyable set of lo-fi, upbeat party Rock. The band describe themselves as “what you might get if The White Stripes, The Violent Femmes, and Phil Spector recorded the soundtrack to a Quentin Tarantino movie.” The Femmes comparison might come from singer/guitarist Matthew Harrison’s occasional vocal resemblance to the great Gordon Gano. Buy One Get One kicks off with the one-two punch of “Come On Phillie” and “The Movie Director.” I’m not sure if “Come On Phillie” is aimed at Jimmy Rollins, Bobby Abreu or perhaps none of the members of my favorite baseball team. And “The Movie Director” features some great keyboard flourishes in the background. Songs like “Matching Girlfriend” are almost reminiscent of the nutty, nutty ska feel of Madness. Buy One Get One is the band’s second release, after 2004’s Havin’ Fun, Soundin’ Good. For more on The Bosch, point your browser to www.boschcast.com.

The Bosch – Buy One Get One (Independently released CD EP, Rock)

New York quartet The Bosch made the right decision to head to Lexington, Kentucky to record this lengthy EP. Produced by Duane Lundy, Buy One Get One is a cool hard rock experience. Blasting out of the gates with the harsh and catchy “Come On Phillie,” these guys provide nine intense garage rockers played with gusto and style. The band consists of Brett Beyer, Andrew Raff, Matthew Harrison, and Holt Richardson. These guys write great songs and they play like they mean it. Buy One Get One is proof positive that The Bosch is a band to watch. Classy tracks include “Metronome,” “Back to the Laboratory,” and “Tell the Doctor.” (Rating: 5+)

Silent Uproar: THE BOSCH, “BUY ONE, GET ONE”

The Bosch is a Virginia-based [sic] quartet–simple, catchy, and oddly unsigned. The latter part of that statement puzzles me, as Buy One, Get One, from its non-descript album cover and song titles, is the ultimate feel-good record: Humorous, often silly lyrics, smart horn arrangements, and thoughtful songwriting that’s neither trite nor too vintage for modern ears, and isn’t condescending–it’s fun.

Americana UK: The Bosch “But One Get One” EP (Independent 2005)

With the recent passing of the great Link Wray it’s good to see bands still relying on a riff heavy sound unafraid to bring in horns and anything else they feel will add to the stew. There’s also something about the Violent Femmes about these tracks, especially the call and response of ‘Back to the Laboratory’ as well as elements of the Cramps – you may have spotted that in ‘Zombie Killer,’ whilst ‘The Movie Director’ has a kind of harsh propulsion that reminded me of Big Chief. With the horn led party anthems ‘Matching Girlfriend’ and the brighter poppier sound of ‘Teenage Symphony’ you have the perfect 25 minutes to soundtrack the time it takes for frat party boys to get so drunk they don’t know what they are listening to.
