First review in for Christian and the Sinners in Spill Magazine:

"Their press release calls their music post-punk noir. I call it dark and dangerous. The Perversion of Something Good is the first release from Christian and the Sinners, and it definitely is — something good."

"Christian DeArmond has created something new and wonderful with this, his latest offering. The heavy rhythm section and driving guitars on this EP are the perfect palate for DeArmond to present his dark tales. With a whisky-soaked…

Nick Cave meets Brian Jonestown Massacre! 

Well, according to The Deli Magazine that's the sound of Christian and the Sinners-

“...The dark, brooding vocal styles of Cave are very apparent in their latest single “Blood on the Frozen Sand”. With guitars sounding like  the Brian Jonestown Massacre, that’s a pretty stellar combo."

Rogues & Blushing Virgins reviewed  

From Bucketlist Music Reviews

"What I really liked about this album is, how despite there only being three songs, Christian DeArmond and Helena Berlin managed to paint a dark musical canvas with tones switching up just a shade for each song as I listened through. I just don’t hear that often, or perhaps some acts may put one dark/sad song at the end of an album, ...or smack a few randomly in, making me crave more or wishing it wasn’t even included. Rogues & Blushing Virgins, however, was just a great ride of…Read more

Reviewed - Cut Loose and Live! 

One thing you gotta know about Christian D And The Hangovers  is that these boys can rock. Hailing from the big smoke known as Toronto these kats have been rippin' it up since 2007. Playing a brand of rockabilly that's just as much rock n roll with a bit of punk attitude, you can't help but take notice. With one ep,an album and a couple of singles the band has shown that it's not afraid to step outside the rockabilly box.

Which brings us to the band's latest release "Cut Loose And Live" and I gotta say this…

A toast to The Hangovers 

Errol Nazareth, The Toronto Sun 

Christian DeArmond doesn’t seem to give a toss what tags critics use to describe the music that his band, Christian D & the Hangovers, makes. I didn’t ask, but I’m guessing he’s pretty comfy with psychobilly.

With a style that looks to The Cramps, Nick Cave and Elvis, The Hangovers belt out distorted, punky rockabilly on record and on stage as if their lives depended on it.

Their hour-long set at the East End Rockabilly Riot two weeks back was exhilarating and one that will…

Christian D interview SugarBuzz magazine

1… How influential were The Cramps and why?

Hugely influential to me. Why- because they are just about perfect in my book- sexy, trashy, raw. Everything that rock and roll should be.

The first time I heard them in high school was a real eye opener- the perfect blend of rockabilly and punk. I don’t think anyone has ever done it better. We covered Cornfed Dames on our first full length, and I’m sure we’ll record another one soon. We do a bunch of Cramps…

Feature Interview- 

There are certain bands that come to mind automatically when you mention a city or country. And the rockabilly group Chrisitan D And The Hangovers are one of those bands that jump out at you when you mention Toronto.

Christian D and The Hangovers have been going at it for a long time and their live shows are living proof that they know how to rock the house at any time of the day or night.

Some have classified Christian D as rockabilly and others have described them as psychobilly - but it really doesn't…

From the dark underbelly of Toronto, where urban cowboys moonlight in the psychobilly clubs comes Christian D And The Hangovers. Mixing early rock n roll with punk, country and lots of beer, Christian D And The Hangovers do for rockabilly what Big Rude Jake does for big band music.

Blue Suede News review of "Shake it Or Leave It!" 

Christian D & the Hangovers are relative newcomers on the Toronto scene, but they’ve wasted no time establishing themselves on live stages and in the studio. Arising from the ashes of local rockabilly group Real Gone, vocalist/guitarist Christian D, along with drummer Mick E. Special are reunited in the Hangovers alongside guitarist Brendan Bauer and bassman Mack Black. These guys mean business, and make good on the promise of their 2008 EP, Life Gets In The Way, with new long-player Shake It… Or Leave It!

So who is Christian D? What makes this singer/songwriter totally magnetic in terms of music and presentation? Well, a lot of things actually but I will just state the obvious.
