"humour of the absurdist school pitched somewhere between Monty Python and Spinal Tap" - Louder Than War

"What really propels the story forward, is Stone's narrative voice - comic and wistful, shot through with a lackadaisical intelligence, and injected with a heavy dose of the countercultural tone that created both Thomas Pynchon and indie-rock music journalism." - Brian Slattery, New Haven Independent

"reads as if Douglas Adams wrote it if he was raised in a record shop by Monty Python and Kurt Vonnegut" - Lance Marwood,

"Aug Stone's writing combines the absurdist insider humor of This Is Spinal Tap with the satirical self-importance of Ian Svenonius' Supernatural Strategies for Making a Rock 'n' Roll Group to create something that is sure to resonate with deep music-obsessives. But fans of quirky outsider fiction will also find plenty of anodyne anti-heroes to root for (and laugh at) in this funny tale of rock and roll ridiculousness." - S.W. Lauden, Remember The Lightning

"this is like a marathon Quentin Tarantino interview" - T. E. Lyons, LEO Weekly

"Stone...does have the Pynchon comic tone and the penchant for pushing ideas to an absurd end." - Boston Groupie News

"The Ballad of Buttery Cake Ass kneads digression into the temporal substance of an emerging truth far richer than anything baked in the ovens of Pynchon completists. It is the really real of the event itself. Reading about music really ought to be full of all kinds of felt intensities and a longing for this fruity tapestry of vibrant matter is the reason that The Ballad of Buttery Cake Ass came into being and must be read by your eyes." - Mikey Georgeson, David Devant & His Spirit Wife, rocker, awesome dude

"Aug Stone! Top of The Pops! I loved this book." - Eddie Argos, Art Brut

"a love letter to collecting" - Chris Bisha, 360° Sound

"This is one hell of a fun trip, Aug has written a fantastic musical documentary which is somehow full of auditory sensations, I'm not sure I've ever experienced anything quite like this; when the band play live the writing matches the tempo and I felt I was there, I could hear the music and see the lights, the band were suddenly with me..." - Jason Denness, Gnome Appreciation Society
