    • 2005 October 21, Monica Kendrick, “Wait for It”, Chicago Reader:
      On the Warlocks' early records, for all that the music was grim and dark and guttery, there was a lightness and a sense of fun in the totally over-the-top playing, each repetitive, maddening, Chinese-water-torture ching-ching-ching drawn out so far past the point of absurdity you could imagine strobe lights flashing off the band's shit-eating grins.

    • 1913, Irvin S. Cobb, The Escape of Mr. Trimm[1]:
      Its guttery flare exposed a bed, with a thin mattress and a skimpy cover, shoved close up under the sloping wall; a sprained chair on its last legs; an old horsehide trunk; a shaky washstand of cheap yellow pine, garnished forth with an ewer and a basin; a limp, frayed towel; and a minute segment of pale pink soap.
    • 1900, Erskine Childers, In the Ranks of the C.I.V.[2]:
