What are people saying about this EP? Wellity, wellity, wellity, here are some choice quotes:
“The Mechanical Turk is a brilliant example of where Satan’s Cheerleaders are at right now. There’s no fat; each song has been skilfully constructed to allow the maximum musical energy to be expended in the shortest amount of time.” David Robinson.

But does the music translate to a live scenario you ask? My oh my! It appears that your question is answered here:
“However experimental (Satan’s Cheerleaders) become with syncopated rhythms and mid-phrase genre swapping, their melodies are always super catchy which grounds the enthralled listener. The energy created by these talented guys is genuinely superb.” Rowena Garcia.

Taking their name from a 1977 B-grade horror flick unearthed in a regional bargain bin at the dawn of the millenium, Satan's Cheerleaders have been peddling their elusive but exclusive, schizophrenic musical offerings with vigour, vim and charm ever since. Blending rock, jazz, experimental composition and pop into a delicious and progressive narrative with gusto and attention to detail, they leave no melodic stone unturned and no stylistic turn unresolved. Over the course of several album releases and performances ranging from late night gigs in seedy bars to international festivals, Satan's Cheerleaders have embarked on many and varied musical adventures. From rockabilly to film music, synth pop to klezmer, Turkish dance to Bowie-esque bangers, it's melodic, rhythmic and powerhouse art rock pulled-off with aplomb."
