"Country Rock Deluxe From The Clydeside Delta" Rocking Magpie
"After about four years of relentless gigging the length and breadth of Scotland, Anton & The Colts finally unleash their debut album and a fine beast it turns out to be. The band, based around front man and chief writer Anton O’Donnell and the mercurial would be glimmer twin, Roscoe Wilson (with a fine rhythm section in John Dunlop on bass and Dillon Haldane, drums), are one of those who sound more American than many American bands do. However there’s a boastful swagger to their gait which owes more than a little to the raunch of the Stones and the jollity of The Faces, in particular, Ronnie Lane’s contributions to the band such as on Ooh La La." Blabber 'n' Smoke
"Their ace combination of rock swagger, blues groove, and the rough and tumble of Americana is one few Scottish bands can match." The Music Brewery
The ATC sound draws on numerous influences: the pristine vocal harmonies of country and bluegrass, raucous bluesy guitars, the tight swinging rhythms of classic soul and funk with Anton’s sweet smokey growl accompanied by tales of love, regret, addiction, good times, bad times and everything in-between.
Since their inception in June '14 and the release of their debut EP, '6:45 & 450 Down' at the beginning of 2015, the band has played numerous venues and festivals throughout Scotland including Glasgow's ABC, King Tuts; the Belladrum festival in Inverness, Southern Fried in Perth and the enchanting Eden festival, Dumfries.
The miles travelled and the countless hours of stage time has helped shape a sound that takes many twists and turns during their live set. It's a sound that the band captured and wrapped up in their debut album, 'No End of the Line'
"an ideal accompaniment to strong drink..... like Robbie Robertson & Rick Danko having a jam session in the company of Mr Jack Daniel"... Bluesbunny
"The Glasgow lot bring the country-fried soul-meets-bluegrass ruckus with the occasional thunderous edge." The Skinny
