Our debut album Shake All Night with The Outta Sites received a great review by Francisco Santelices in the January issue of Ruta66 a Rock magazine in Spain that has a production run of 25,000. The english translation:

It is impressive what can be done live in a home recording studio. But, of course, the musicians on Shake All Night are no lightweights: this entertaining album is an outlet of two members of Los Straitjackets. Leaving the drums and armed with a Rickenbacker, Chris “Sugarballs” Sprague takes over lead vocals for The Outta Sites while the bassist for the masked surfers sits in on the drums. And if you need references, the group is endorsed by Deke Dickerson. The skillful guitar and marvelous voice of Sugarballs should come as no surprise as he was a front man for The Sprague Brothers, and more recently with his truck driving country machine The 18 Wheelers. But here there is no honky-tonk to be found, now it’s the time to let your hair down with the major garage style of the Nuggets, the rock and roll pop of Bobby Fuller and the beat fringe. And while they do many wonderful versions of covers, their seven original songs leave nothing to be desired. All could have been hits forty years ago, or cult garage rock themes if they came out during the revival of the mid 1980s. Crystal clear sound, great voices and a jumping electric organ. The entire album is great and full of the most refreshing garage rock, frat, and beat.
