Some people have written nice things about us on the web in the last couple of weeks.
Concert Livewire: Livewire’s exclusive interview with The Bosch, “One band of note that has recently emerged from this ever-bourgeoning scene is The Bosch, a quartet that successfully marries the immediate, one-two punch of punk bands like The Ramones and The Dead Boys with the detached cool of Lou Reed, while also adding in enough Nuggets-era stained garage rock and West Coast surf music to make both Lenny Kaye and Dick Dale beam with pride.”
Time Out NY: The Bosch: “The Bosch’s recent EP, Hurry Up, is a fun collection of boppin’ rock & roll tunes, juiced with plenty of ’50s-style twang.”
Pop Tarts Suck Toasted: This Week’s Live Picks: “Wow, two of the most criminally ignored bands of 2007 together in one place! Both The Bosch and El Jezel released solid albums last year, but most seemed to go almost unnoticed while much shittier bands were getting lauded on every blog from here to Siberia.”

Tomorrow night, we’re out in the ‘burbs in Clifton, NJ at The Clash Bar.
Hurry Up is officially released today! What does that mean? You can buy it online here at the Boschcast store.Here’s a great review at ReadJunk:
Ever notice that garage bands rarely ever ROCK? Weird, right? Well, The Bosch ROCK. They hit all the right notes – their garagey swagger isn’t hipsterish – it’s a genuinely cool Lou Reed thing with even a little Joey Ramone in there. The music is great – an immensely likable mix of 60s garage, 50s r&b, and Strokesy rock. They’re also one of the only garage bands that incorporate keys and horns and have it sound awesome.
Read the rest of this very flattering review: Bosch, The “Hurry Up EP”We’re playing a couple of dates outside of the city, but still in the greater metro NYC area over the next couple of weeks, hitting Nyack, NY on Saturday Oct. 6 and The Clash Bar in Clifton, NJ on Friday October 12.
The ever-wonderful 3hive blogged about Hurry Up: The Bosch: “This NYC quartet offers short, rich, intense songs that are better enjoyed on their own, without comparison.”
