    "A nifty 25th-anniversary document of the band's fandom and faith. The 14 songs, cleanly recorded at various gigs and rehearsals between 1981 and 2001, favor the late-'70s Stiff Records post-pub roster (drawing from Tenpole Tudor, Nick Lowe, Larry Wallis and Wreckless Eric) and lyrics about topics other than amour... The Reducers do their forbears - and, in the process, themselves - proud with care, enthusiasm and empathy." ~Ira Robbins, Trouser Press.

about

The Reducers pay tribute to their rock 'n' roll heroes.

Old Cons, cover-illustrated with five pairs of grungey Chuck Taylors, is a nifty 25th-anniversary document of the band's fandom and faith. The 14 songs, cleanly recorded at various gigs and rehearsals between 1981 and 2001, favor the late-'70s Stiff Records post-pub roster... Reducers do their forbears — and, in the process, themselves — proud with care, enthusiasm and empathy. - Trouser Press
