Broome Closet Anti-Folk Sessions (109 Records LP) is a folk-music record in the most literal sense: ten streetwise troubadours addressing the human condition in one of the most inhumane cities in the world, New York, and putting their discontent on record in a tiny Broome Street apartment. You'll recognize a few names on the label, like Roger Manning, Kirk Kelly and Cindy Lee Berryhill. And you'll certainly recognize the sentiments at work and the echo of earlier protest kings (Guthrie, Dylan, Ochs) in these raw but compelling performances. Rolling Stone, March 22, 1990

White Trash: N.Y. Folk (109 Records) is as raw, flawed, charming, obnoxious, and sometimes brilliant as the Loisaida mini-scene that spawned it. Thereby, about as "authentic" as anything can be in this thoroughly fake, overrated one-horse town. Many cuts are more rough sketch than developed conception. (Then so was the Thompkins Square mini-insurrection, you might add.) Given the flakiness and factionalism endemic to the milieu, it's commendable Village Voice, March 7, 1989
