BluesMusicFan Radio's, Reverend Lobo reviewed Swamp Stomp on his world-wide, Thursday broadcast. The transcription of the review is below:
"Todays album review, Swamp Stomp. I was fortunate enough to talk with Iron Mike Norton, the other day, and then gave his entire album a listen, and let me tell you, Iron Mike may make you think of a pro fighter, but with good reason. The man doesn't only swamp stomp, he gets down right dirty and kick some righteous gator tail.
Iron Mike is truly one bad ass blues boy, and he brings you 13 rounds of a hell of a good fight, with jabs and punches like, Killer Bee and Dead Man's Stomp. While the album was released last year, I felt it well worth a review, especially after getting the chance to talk to him the other day. i could go on, but I'm gonna let you decide for yourself. here is the self proclaimed, king of swamp stomp. Iron Mike and Dead Man's Stomp and Shake My Tree." (songs cued)
"Iron Mike Norton is described by peers and critics as one of the most innovative and creative artists in the genre and with good reason. Swamp stomp delivers not only Iron Mike and his unique slide guitar, but also Ralph Tarr and David Cotten, who work together to bring a truly powerful blues album that provides you with a good ole' southern style, stompified, knock out punch. The Rev says bless yourself with this album if you haven't already."

BluesMusicFan.com is pretty self-explanatory. We’re are fans of the genre of music called The Blues, so much so that we run a radio station playing the blues 24/7. The blues is as simple or as complicated as you like them. It can be as homespun and rootsy as picking up a guitar and plucking out three chords, or it can be as grandiose and complex as filling a stadium full of screaming fans and wailing away on the Telecaster. It is the core from which most popular music has sprung and it flows in our veins and its notes and rhythms affect us. Because of all that, we have stuff to say, to share, to put out into the universe with the hopes that someone else can relate to it.
