'London lot Hadouken! are the freshest thing on the site this week by miles. They sound angry, they sound smart and they sound like something youll be hearing a lot more of in the coming months. Best tune 'That Boy That Girl is a savage, snarling work of genius that makes me want to smash bottles over my head. In a good way." NME

Hadouken! take the gold medal for carnage ... You'd hesitate to call Hadouken! frontman a singer, you'd also be reluctant to class him as a rapper but as ("nasty") samples flitter and near grime style drum n bass batter the lobes, Hadouken! don't half know how to make a racket. Tunes of the calibre of 'Dance Lesson', 'Tuning In' and 'That Boy. That Girl' sound superb at close vicinity and as crowd surfers sail overhead.

'...a hardcore, PA-decimating, Oi-punk, chav-hop, day glo riot soon-to-be-know-to-everyone as HADOUKEN!' The Fly

'Hadouken are vulgar - songs about staring at big tits, fighting, sex, booze and all the usual suspects but sung in a straight up way - even the bass is big and dirty... If you've ever wondered what a Dizzee Rascal and Test Icicles collaboration would sound like then Hadouken are your answer. Singer James wittily raps, shouts and yelps in even measures about 'indie Cindy's' and boys pulling myspace pouts instead of dancing... say hello to your new favourite band.'

'It's danceable grime with a wit most of Britpop would sell their Union Jacks for. 'That Boy That Girl' is nigh-on genius: lyrics that'll make you laugh, and a beat that'll make you move. Voluntarily.' THIS IS FAKE DIY

'Having won the genre lottery, they pulled the lever set to bask in their audiences adoration - it becomes apparent that all of the music industry and all their myspace friends have turned up to bounce and bob their heads to them. Very upstarted and abrasive, spouting terms like indy cindy, talking about scenesters dressed in their neon paint splattered gear.'

'From comments i've heard though this seems to really polarise opinion. The correct opinion is that it is fucking genius.' HEADPHONE SEX

'They're basically very good.'

'A great new band' Mike fucking Skinner
