If you get chance to see these rascals from Chorley way do so; they really do know how to put on a show. They mix in a few Jam and Two Tone covers to boot, but don't expect them to tone down the act when they do, they still punk 'em up! All in all thoroughly enjoyable for a change of pace so check them out if you get the chance.... Mods welcome!.....Gary Grimshaw@ Stylescene UK 28/7/15

"Stupendously Fantastic ! The Stories wowed a 500 + Sold Out !crowd & had the whole theatre bouncing from start to finish "...(organizers) Into The Valley Punk & New Wave festival ,The Grand Theatre ,Clitheroe 18/04/15

Holy shit!, these guys are good!.
From the first to the last, from The Clash to The Sex Pistols via The Specials and Joy Division, The Stories absolutely Rocked The House Down!.
The Beer Flowed ! and the Crowd Bounced! pretty much from the first song and it's been a while since I've seen the dance floor quite as Rammed !as it was that night......
........The Bike & Hound ,Hyde 25/10/14

THE STORIES Entertained ! an Enthusiastic! Boisterous! Crowd !who would not let them off the stage with larger than life lead singer Andy (SID ) creating the Right Atmosphere with plenty of Audience Participation , this band really got to the crowd .
A None Stop !show Hit after Hit I left exhausted......The Hop Pocket /Chorley/Saturday Night Live in the Lounge 15/6/13
