"As ad-hoc purveyors of power pop, the members of SWAG proved themselves to be in a class of their own at the cozy Khyber in Philadelphia Thursday evening (April 19, 2001)"

Pat Berkery

"A labor of love that finds a bunch of roots-rock musicians bashing out Anglophilic power pop that's been fitted with comfortable three-part harmonies."

Jonathan Perry
Boston Phoenix

"They had a slam-packed show." Kent Marcus, music attorney.   "Everyone from guys from the Black Crowes to Ray Davies was there to check them out." 

Daryl Sanders

"At its heart, Catch-all is a meticulously crafted, genuinely enthusiastic plunge into a style of pop songcraft that almost sounds like it comes from another world."


"If all the kids who bought the Beatles' 1 bought this too, guitar-powered pop would be in great shape". 

Ken Tucker
Entertainment Weekly

"This debut is the best blast of '60s-style power pop since, well, the Beatles' greatest-hits album, 1."  Three stars."

Richard Skanse
US Weekly

"Swag doesn't stand for anything except great pop music."

"Catch-all is a vital, fiendishly catchy piece of work."

Michael Pelusi

"If Paul McCartney were still making good music, he could only wish he'd made an album this good."
