"On NEVER FEAR, you'll find jig-rockers like "A Rose is God's autograph"; poignant ballads, such as the glimpse of an 11-year-old's world in a dysfunctional family in "When You Feel Like Crying", rousing Grecian Folk tempos on 'Whispering Salvation" and an unusual bent to songs like "I'm in Love (but Not With You)" and the cheerfully preposterous notion of a bleary 8am mind in 'I Wish My Wife Was A Country Singer ' "

REVIEWS of 'NEVER FEAR'
"The songs are great, suggesting the finest moments of The Mekons "
CMJ MAGAZINE 'Jackpot'
"Joe Hurley is one of N.Y.'s most entertaining frontmen. His distinctive vocals can be raucous as all get-out, and as sorrowful as a baritone can be"
"Celtic-tinged R & R with unshakable pop hooks, mixing guitars & keyboards with mandolin & tin whistle, Rogue's March celebrate drinking, depression, and strife, with songs thickly coated in black humor.
"Shut Up and Drink" and "Amsterdam Mistress" (which rhymes "pints of guinness" with "lots of slow kisses" ) make for perfect St Patrick's Day wallowing"
NEW YORK TIMES
"Rogue's March are a fantastic band who have managed to capture the same excitement they create during a show in a tight, raw, studio recording, NEVER FEAR. This 14 song collection is an exuberant package featuring a heap of memorable music."
NEW YORK POST 'CD Of the Week'
"Musically tight & hugely entertaining, Rogue's March play an inspired hybrid of C&W, Irish Trad,and R & R. 'NEVER FEAR' showcases songs such as "Joyriding", which is as poignant and reckless as anything this side of the Stones' "Gimme Shelter", and "I'm In Love (But Not With You)" which recalls the turn on a dime riffs of Jam era punk. "Amsterdam Mistress" remains one of the most evocative ballads ever penned"
