'The Kaiser Monkey Killers are gritty and extremely loud and, given the Indie Rock material they cover, surely no one would have them any other way. Songs from Kasabian and The Enemy followed an opening burst of the Killers’ Mr Brightside, which moved the trade-only room to reciprocate the band’s efforts with copious applause, not to mention the odd whoop and holler'

'Closing the show out were the Kaiser Monkey Killers. If there is a better quality indie rock-based band tribute out there, I have yet to see them. These guys are busy at tribute festivals and the more musically savvy people in the audience at the Norbreck Castle Hotel appreciated the sheer quality of what was going on out there on stage.'
