he wrote this really sweet review of us
“My friends left some time around when Psychic Boots took to the stage, their first show back in Pittsburgh and the end of a short tour. I had never heard them before, but they were very good; rock/noise/grunge and sort of like Jane’s Addiction, but not at all actually. They could probably be more comparable to Sonic Youth, but that doesn’t make sense. They played hard for a very long time, but after each song seemed so composed. There were cool melodies and lots of dissonance; psychedelic sludge forever!”
a really swell kid. also he took some great photos of us and even a live recording (!) that you can hear on his blog.

two reviews of das boots:
” The Psychic Boots from Pittsburgh PA, a rag-tag group of stooped humble geniuses disguised as mid nineties grunge rockers set up to play a bit of the noisiest psychedelia I have ever had the pleasure of listening to. The boys of the Boots began directing sounds at the expecting crowd in a fury. Their guitars gyrated almost as much as their hips, and the songs gave birth to waves of sound that undulated through the body ultimately causing everyone listening to groove along with the tunes. This group, comprised of Andrew and Josh two guitarist who shared vocal duties and wonderful front dude(s) props, a mighty bassist named Jon who held the whole floating bowl of fruit together splendidly, and drums provided by Max-a-million whose ability to flow with the current of the song form with the ebb and flow of the mightiest ocean, the kid was good.
The Boots were a pleasure to watch and hear. They gave me faith that there can still be folks out there stretching the style of music artistry while keeping all the correct undertones and influences in tact. The Psychic Boots were stomping all over the place and their music was soaring in our tiny skate shop, and that, my friends, is a good thing. So, next time we say, “You don’t want to miss this show!” you should probably listen and witness it for yourself…like I said earlier, if you missed this one, well, then, you missed a really good time and some really good tunes. ”
”Pittsburgh’s Psychic Boots say they are fake rock and roll that sounds like falling off a horse. They list funk legend James Brown and Viking black metal’s craziest crazy man Varg Vikernes of Burzum as their main influences. Which is pretty much a useless description, so we thought we’d give you our opinion: we think they sound like a delightfully sloppy sort of lazy rock and roll with crooning vocals that slide around the minor-key melodies like Glenn Danzig going down a swervy slide on a playground”
