"We turn reality inside out."
Walter Sickert & The ARmy of BRoken TOys are the spinners of a charming, demented fairy tale that gathers new characters all the time. At the heart of the colorful fantasy is Walter Sickert, the writer, ringleader and conjurer.
"This is a dense listening experience, with 18 songs fanning out over one relentless hour. As expected with such a diverse cast, the record is all over the musical map. There are moments of distorted beauty and bluesy swagger on par with Jack White. Ballads bleed into rockers; acoustic love songs give way to psychedelic fever dreams. Nearly the only constant on this kamikaze collection of songs is the band's firm belief that there's no other way to make music." [3/21/2013]

"On "Droog and Devotchka": “The romantic drunkenness of Walter Sickert's voice pushes against the meter, and moreover, I love this tasty arrangement from the Army, which includes the sweetest little fiddle/mandolin hooks I ever did hear.” [11/20/2012]
