'Part Pulp, part Kinks, and very much part Peculiar, this is observational, punk-tinged songwriting at its best.' [HOT PRESS]. 'Vinny Peculiar songs make you laugh and cry and think all at the same time' [TOM ROBINSON BBC 6Music]. ‘A well-measured introduction to an under sung national treasure’ [UNCUT MAGAZINE]. 'Crashing poppily through Vinnys world of nostalgia and insight every song stuffed to the gills with melody and eccentricity, clever, funny and wonderfully weird’. [R2 MAGAZINE].
