Mike Thomas, The Vail Daily News: Veruca Salt’s return a mini-triumph
The Bosch, “Buy One Get One”
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.

Welcome to 2006! So far this year, The Bosch have moved into a surprisingly comfortable and convenient new rehearsal space, played a rocking Sunday night show at The Merc’, received some nice reviews for Buy One, Get One, and have some other intriguing developments on the horizon.
In the immediate future, The Bosch get down to Death Disco this Wednesday (Jan. 25th) at The Delancey, on (not surprisingly) Delancey St. in the Lower East Side by the foot of the Williamsburg Bridge. Death Disco is always free, always a good time, and The Bosch are playing with some excellent bands, including The Great Shakes (who helped WOXY’s Lounge Act pioneer podcasting) and El Jezel (who recently released their shiny new album.)
See you on Wednesday! The password is “death metal.”

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.

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.
