"..."Seth Gibbs! Seth Gibbs!" chanted a crowd at Hotel Vegas last Thursday as the Reputations played a superb set to christen the release of sophomore LP Electric Power.

Playback – Austin Record Convention: The Greatest Record Store on Earth
ARC of the covenant, good Reputations, and Blind Sight
Music Column  May 4, 2017, by Kevin Curtin
"...In 2015, four of the Reputations' six members – notably earnest pop mastermind Seth Gibbs – were enlisted in Bobby Jealousy version 2.1.2. That Austin favorite had dissolved a year prior following the divorce of Gibbs and co-leader Sabrina Ellis (Sweet Spirit, A Giant Dog), but after signature song "Rainbows" became the opening theme of Comedy Central's Big Time in Hollywood, FL, Gibbs assembled a new version of the group to capitalize on the national spotlight..."

How Much Harder Can Skeleton Get?
They’re already the most savage specimen of homegrown hardcore
Music Story  July 26, 2018, by Tim Stegall
"...Recorded with current bassist Alex Recide, the new Orville Neeley produced, Seth Gibbs mastered Super Secret Records extended play, Pyramid of Skull, comes chock-full of one-minute hate bombs including "Dystroy" and "Burning Flame." It's the most polished distillation of Skeleton's strengths to date: doom metal guitar tones, assaultive D-beat grooves, and Victor's razor blade larynx growls. It's heavier than plutonium...."

The Reputations
Music Review  August 10, 2017, by Tim Stegall
"...If the Reputations hew close to A Giant Dog satellite Sweet Spirit, it's from being a byproduct of Bobby Jealousy, which both bands' singer Sabrina Ellis once helmed with now-ex-husband Seth Gibbs. Basically Bobby Jealousy 2.0, the Reputations share the same male/female vocal dynamic, guitarist Gibbs subbing for Andrew Cashen, and Jenny Carson and Rockyanne Bullwinkel snatching Ellis' penchant for playing soul music with pop-garage leavening and shrieky high drama..."

Bobby Jealousy
Music Review  April 6, 2012, by Chase Hoffberger
"...A short-fused firecracker when she's fronting punk party-crashers A Giant Dog, singer Sabrina Ellis reels it in as best she can on the debut full-length from Bobby Jealousy, the local quartet she leads alongside hubby Seth Gibbs (Leatherbag, the Archibalds) and British import Mark Stoney. Recorded at Gibbs' Superpop Records, A Little Death packs British pop ("House of Mirrors"), retro soul ("Shake Me, Baby"), and freeway-ready classic rock ("It Doesn't Get Any Better Than This") in charming disarray..."

Music Column  December 13, 2018, by Kevin Curtin
"...Both were 62. Austin music lost many legends over the past 12 months: Sammy Allred of the Geezinslaw Brothers, accordion titan Ponty Bone, music event electrician Bob "Bulb" Cannon, Poison 13/Lord High Fixers/Total Sound Group Direct Action Committee singer Mike Carroll, venue owner and dance hall preservationist Steve Dean, Bobby Jealousy's Seth Gibbs, Thee Unseen Eye singer/guitarist Sonny James, Mings owner Fai Jow, Offenders frontman J.J..."

The Reputations
Music Review  November 21, 2018, by Kevin Curtin
"...On highlight "Out of Style," akin to an early Meatloaf-Jim Steinman composition, bassist/vocalist Justin Smith provides a lyrical antidote to the hopeless feelings that consume us. That anti-blues medicine also hits the spot on Bullwinkel's finest moment, "If the Spirit Don't Move You." The recently departed Seth Gibbs, who along with Rudy Spencer provides the Reps' bad-boy guitar sound, delivers Electric Power's most beautiful material: a reprise of Brother Machine favorite "Shake Me Baby" and the wondrous "Neighborhood."..."

Bobby Jealousy Moving?
Playback’s Monday music news
DAILY Music  April 1, 2013, by Kevin Curtin
"...Bobby Jealousy released several preview tracks this weekend. One tune sung by Ellis’ husband Seth Gibbs, “Country,” sounds like an inflated truck month jingle, but the strangest leak spins a pop-country version of A Giant Dog’s “Cowboy” that omits the word “fuck.”..."

Bobby Jealousy
Music Story  February 15, 2013, by Chase Hoffberger
"...A tale of two LPs for Sabrina Ellis and her alarmingly outrageous pipes, which flex, jive, and wail for more than an hour this week on two releases from a couple of Austin's most entertaining gutter balls. The first, Bobby Jealousy's The Importance of Being Jealous, finds the rowdy singer bobbing alongside hubby Seth Gibbs, who recorded the album in his East Austin studio and lends a healthy dose of self-started Superpop Records charm to the 12-track effort..."

'Good Day Austin' anchor Joe Bickett says adios, the Scottish Rite Theater, Good Music Club, and Spider House say hello again, and Emo's owner Frank Hendrix goes cable
Music Column  May 25, 2012, by Kevin Curtin
"...Ellis, who pulled double duty in also fronting her other band A Giant Dog, upped the spunk with exuberant backup vocals, while her Jealous bandmates kept the party going with their loose brand of retro rock. When the house bass amp blew, singer Seth Gibbs hopped around with Ellis for the ultra-catchy closer, "Rainbow." Bobby Jealousy is summer vacation. Damn Rite!..."
