Here’s what some smart people have to say about the band:
"Confident and assertive without hitting the point of cockiness, every second of Ship Of Fools asserts that while we are no longer in the fine company of acts such as the New Bomb Turks or Gaza Strippers, the world of punk rock’n’roll is alive again. American Speedway have revived the corpse." - Keith Carman, EXCLAIM!
"AMERICAN SPEEDWAY sounds almost legitimately Southern it could thus be said they are the North’s answer to NASHVILLE PUSSY." Ray Van Horn, Jr., AMP MAGAZINE
"All hail greasy, loud, riff-heavy rock!" - Greg Prato, ALL MUSIC GUIDE
"Straight out of Hostile City, USA (aka Philadelphia) American Speedway pound, bash and puke through marriage - ruining asshole- anthems like Drink' And Drivin' and No Control like the Supersuckers on their first day back from a 90 day stint in the county jail." - sleazegrinder, CLASSIC ROCK MAGAZINE
The Alternative Cinema crew’s fixin’ to be there around 10 PM – see you there!
