“When I met with Kevin Henderson, of The Swigs and Fish Karma, at his home, I was greeted with a hug, a cold beer, and a 1974 Creem magazine with Iggy Pop on its cover. The hug was a sheer expression of joy and mutual appreciation for the meeting of the minds about to take place. The cold beer was only appropriate for the beautiful Tucson afternoon around us and the Creem magazine that was for inspiration. It was not for me to emulate but rather to think on a time in music journalism, made up of passionate people, just having fun writing about the music that fueled their lives. Inspired, that sums up the feeling I experienced when I spoke with Kevin and now whenever I put on The Swigs’ pivotal rock album, Johnson Family Values.”

“Johnson Family Values serves up once again the unmistakable distinctive guitar sound of Chief Kevin Henderson, who charges anywhere in between Mountain, Led Zeppelin, and Thin Lizzy. The whole thing is supported by the exquisite bass lines of bassist Eric Snyder, rounded out by Mike Troupe at the shooting gallery” — Holger Bachmann
