  3. A Taste Of Pink

    Prisoners:
    A Taste Of Pink (Käytetty CD)

    "by DEAN RUDLAND



    There is something about a rock'n'roll band that appeals. I think it's the feeling that with a little effort we could all be up there, guitars in hand. It is this "do it yourself" ethic that ensures that the popularity of guitar-based groups endures, and that even when the hot light of publicity is shining elsewhere those bands will still be formed. At the moment the classic garage band sound is very much back in vogue, coming from US bands such as the White Stripes from Detroit and their ilk. These bands and their members have been playing for years with little publicity and would have carried on doing so regardless of success. This is a similar situation to the scene that formed around the Medway towns just outside London, in the early 80s which produced many bands; notably the Milkshakes with leader Billy Childish, but also the Prisoners, whose rough-hewn take on 60s psych and garage made them one of the great "lost" bands of the 1980s. This unique re-issue of their debut album A TASTE OF PINK with additional tracks shows the band development from their earliest home demo through to their move outside their local area onto a wider audience.



    The Prisoners formed in 1980 when Allan Crockford, Graham Day and Johnny Symons formed a band at school in Rochester. It was pretty basic stuff, Graham on guitar, Allan on bass and Johnny on drums, mixing punk and 60s influences, rehearsals at parents' homes and maybe the odd gig in between exams. 1981 saw the band take things more seriously, and the band expanded to a four piece with the addition of Bruce Brand from the Milkshakes as a second guitarist, which brought with it a stronger R&B flavour. This arrangement didn't last long and the far more important discovery for the year was Graham's voice as a songwriter.



    Late in 1981 (Allan thinks November) the band recorded a home demo as a three piece. It's an interesting document which we present here for the first time. Obviously a little rough around the edges, the band is nonetheless a tight outfit with all the power you could want from a guitar trio. The songs include the previously unheard Talking Bout My Baby, which is strongly marked by one of Graham's biggest influences at that time, the Pretty Things. Two of the other songs, Don't Call My Name and Say Your Prayers, would be recorded again for A Taste Of Pink. The final song, Lilac Reflections, is a bit of a discovery, an early live favourite, still liked by Allan and Graham. This is the first time you will have ever heard it unless you were at the early gigs. These demos once again showed the touch of the Milkshakes as that band's Russell Wilkins helped in the recording - something that he did on and off throughout the Prisoners' career.



    The Prisoners became a four piece in early 1982 with the addition of Jamie Taylor on organ. James, like the others, was in the same year at Rochester Mathematical School - and was Johnny Symons' best mate. Originally he played a modern Casio keyboard, which was given a distinct sound by playing its organ sound - loud - through a valve amplifier. The organ and Graham's songs gave the Prisoners a distinctive sound, allowing them their own niche within the local scene. Throughout the first half of 1982 they played all the local venues, most notably the Medway Indian Club (MIC), where they would later record a live album with the Milkshakes.



    The Milkshakes were a discernable influence on the Prisoners' attitudes and it was their "get up and get on with it yourself" ethos that convinced the band that they could just go and record an album. So with money saved from their gigs - looked after by Allan's then girlfriend - and the spur of Jamie's impending exodus to university in Newcastle, the band recorded A Taste Of Pink. The album was recorded in two days at a studio in Herne Bay. The first day - a Sunday - saw the putting down of backing tracks and guide vocals recorded live to tape.

    Pink Slip Daddy:
    Viva Fabian EP (7 single/EP)

    Long time Philly-area rockers Pink Slip Daddy, the brainchild of Mick Cancer, Sal Mineo's Only Son, Barb Dwyer and Palmyra Delran, was formed in the late 1980s. Inactive for periods of time due to other musical obligations, Pink Slip Daddy has returned to rock action with a vengeance, having recently played a string of calamitous live shows and a new 7" EP. Viva Fabian! (produced by Ben Vaughn and featuring guest saxophonist extraordinaire Big Chief) is a rollicking, raucous heartfelt celebration of the music of teen pop idol Fabian Forte and the golden age of Philadelphia rock 'n' roll.

  7. Ka-Pow! An Explosive Collection: 1967-1968

    Powder:
    Ka-Pow! An Explosive Collection: 1967-1968 (CD)

    My brothers are a few years older than myself, and since our parents both worked full time, I frequently attended the rehearsals and gigs for their bands the Newcastle Five and Art Collection. Being around Rich and Tom exposed me to music quite different to that of my grade school peers. At age 10, I was into the Who, Small Faces, Kinks and Yardbirds, while my friends dug the Monkees.

    I remember when in early 1968 Rich and Tom formed Powder, at the same time that they were the backing band for Sonny and Cher. As a spectator, I watched them play songs like ‘Gladly’ and ‘Grimbley Leitch’ over and over again for months, until they were permanently embedded in my mind. I learned an appreciation for the chime of Rickenbacker guitars, Vox amps, ringing cymbals and feedback. Their drummer, Bill Schoppe, was my first drum teacher and a major influence. I often sat right under Bill’s drums and watched his incredible playing. I was hooked!

    The Powder recordings never came out of course, and a little later Rich and Tom became Thomas and Richard Frost and achieved some fame with their hit record ‘She’s Got Love’. When Alec Palao first brought out the original Powder tracks many years ago, I had thought these treasures had been lost forever, and I was thrilled that they went on to gain a cult following. Now with Big Beat’s remastering, the sound quality on “Ka-Pow!” is a major improvement: it’s how I remember Powder sounded back in the day. The clarity of vocals, Bill’s crashing drums, the rumble of Tom’s bass and Rich’s guitar thunder are finally revealed and preserved for all to enjoy.

Some of the songs in this package (such as 'It's All Over Now Baby Blue', 'Walking My Cat Named Dog', 'Loving You Is Sweeter Than Ever' and 'Like A Rolling Stone') were stage favourites or recorded especially for the BBC, having never been issued on disc by the band. Many of the tracks have a brief interview and introduction by DJs such as Brian Matthew.

  11. Rare And Unissued

    Prisoners:
    Rare And Unissued (Käytetty CD)

    "Album Description

    * In 1988 a year after they had fallen apart, loved by a hard-core legion of fans who had supported them up and down the country and across Europe, the Prisoners released "Rare And Unissued" on Billy Childish's Hangman label. Despite its rather lo-fi nature, it became a prized possession for many of those fans and has never been available on CD before.

    * In the intervening 20 years the Prisoners legend has grown. Graham Day and Allan Crockford formed a variety of groups from Planet to the Solar Flares (Allan is currently in the Billboard Garage charts with his group the Stabilisers), organist James Taylor has his Quartet and virtually invented Acid Jazz. The Prisoners are now seen as the great pioneers of modern day garage, lauded in the NME as one of the most influential bands of the 80s. Recently their "Last Fourfathers" album was described by Uncut as "one of the most important in British rock". Everyone from Oasis' Noel Gallagher to Radio One's Steve Lamacq claim to love them, as do Ian Brown and The Horrors along the way.

    * Our version of "Rare And Unissued" leaves off a handful of tracks that were included on Big Beat's reissues of the original albums, but otherwise sees the Hangman album present and correct with great live tracks, live cuts and early B-sides showing a truly breathtaking outfit in action. We have added to that collection two wonderful studio out-take tracks; an instrumental called `Unbeliever (Fast)' from the "Wizer" sessions and a take of `Love Me Lies' recorded live in a studio some time before the its appearance at those sessions. Also added are two cuts recorded at a live demo session in 1984 which appeared on various small run compilations - `Joe 90' and an amazing version of `Hush'.

    * The whole package is completed with notes that include in-depth comments from the Prisoners, and illustrations of all the various releases from which these tracks have been culled."

    "by JOSS HUTTON



    WEL, I NEVER, a Prisoners greatest hits set. About time, I calls it.



    Britain's finest psych'n'soul band of the past two decades blessed us with four studio albums, several live sets, a number of 7"s, the odd bonus number and sundry compilation tracks between 1982 and 1986. And everything that Graham, Jamie, Allan and Johnny cut still sounds monumentally inspired. From the propulsive teen garage of their 1982 debut album, "A Taste Of Pink", to 1986's classy "In From The Cold", the Kentish quartet's catalogue is an awesome musical treasure trove.



    The Prisoners were such a solid unit - a bunch of fiercely independent anti-hipsters who exuded a dryly silly sense of humour - and owed as much to the Pretty Things and the Jimi Hendrix Experience, as the Small Faces, or Booker T. & The MGs. They dished an unassailable, interlocking riptide of steaming Hammond, searing guitar, soulful vocals, fluid bass and on-the-dime drumming. Or, if you put it another way, nothing less than a musical rollercoaster ride through 30 years of suss and strut - with guitar and organ dogfighting on top, just for kicks. Yep, that's the kind of synapse-frying Medway Delta gumbo that you can get a more-ish earful of right here. The band and old Dean-O Rudland, the compilers of this essential set, have selected so many treats that it's nearly indecent.



    Sure, some Prisoners fanatics (and they are legion) will nitpick with the track selection; that's the luxury of having such a nugget-stuffed catalogue to choose from (buy it all, why don'tcha?). But, believe me, the bottom line is that this baby smokes. And we ain't talking low tar. Expect a whole heap of Leslie speaker-shredding overdrive and lysergic guitar-fuelled fury, via stage faves like Nobody Wants Your Love, Deceiving Eye and Reaching My Head. What about the paint-strippingly funky, dancefloor-filling instrumentals? Well, there's sure-fire boat-floaters Come To The Mushroom, Explosion On Uranus and Revenge Of The Cybermen. And also classic songsmithery aplenty, on such heart-tugging numbers as Whenever I'm Gone, The Last Thing On Your Mind and Mourn My Health. Oh, and don't forget the all-out garage psych screamers (Melanie, Better In Black) or the slices of edgily atmospheric pop (Wish The Rain, Thinking Of You (Broken Pieces)). Truly, this particular musical cup doth runneth over.



    It's easy to forget that these tracks were committed to tape nearly two decades ago, in a drastically different musical climate. Back then, the indie charts were pretty much just that; nobody monopolised London's gig venues; brown ale was still quaffed by the crateful; and over-cranked Vox amplifiers generated an impenetrable fog which covered much of Southern England. The advent of t'internet, massive CD reissue programmes and the bleedin' iPod means that today's guitar-toters are living in some sort of pop culture paradise / wasteland (delete as applicable), which should have already translated into the appearance of a musical Yber-generation. And yet, the Prisoners simply cream today's most lionised rock'n'roll bands (names available, upon request). Funny, that.

  17. In From The Cold

    Prisoners:
    In From The Cold (CD)

    by Lois Wilson



    The Prisoners pre-empted the visceral energy of the Hives and the White Stripes and anticipated the baggy shuffle of the Charlatans and the Inspiral Carpets. Lead singer Graham Day's scorching Hendrix-influenced guitar riffs and organist James Taylor's hypnotising Hammond whirls and irresistible go go rhythms not only changed my life but far more influential music types too.



    In From The Cold, their fourth LP, originally released on Stiff subsidiary Countdown, was the band's swan song. It's not difficult to see why. Live gigs were already incendiary affairs. Graham picked up his guitar amp and speakers and chucked them at James at one gig at the Clarendon in London. Another time he slammed down his guitar and stormed off stage leaving the rest of the band twiddling their thumbs at the Escape Club in Brighton. Being holed up in a studio with producer Troy Tate for a whole five months, an exceedingly long time in Prisoners' terms, (previous albums had taken a mere three days to put down) only led to further outbreaks of internecine tension and rivalry.



    By the time of the album's release, Stiff were on the verge of going bust. The LP was available for just two weeks. After the initial pressing sold out there was no money left to press up any more. As a result few got to hear what would in many circles be hailed the Prisoners' finest moment. That is until now with this fabulous reissue of the original LP plus five bonus tracks. Along with Dean Rudland's informative sleeve notes and photos from the time, we get cuts like Mourn My Health, Deceiving Eye and Wish The Rain, which showcase Day's whisky-sodden lyrical intensity. Laced with melancholia, despair and sheer hopelessness, they tear at the heart strings. The album's closer: Main Title Theme (The Lesser Evil) is a dark, brooding instrumental up there with John Barry's Ipcress File soundtrack and a hint at where James Taylor would be heading with his quartet after the band's demise, while the infectious All You Gotta Do Is Say, co-written with Graham's girlfriend Fay Hallam (of fellow Countdown act Makin' Time), could have given the Prisoners the hit single they so rightly deserved.



    As for the bonus tracks included here, we get the band's delicious 1986 single, Whenever I'm Gone plus its B-sides Promised Land and Grave Digger, and culled from Rare And Unissued, a compilation of demos and rarities on Hangman records from 1988, are the tracks Happiness For Once and the magnificent Pop Star Party. The latter's lyrics lambasted Stiff Records but it was the few seconds silence during the song's intro that caused a stir. It sounded as if the tape had been broken and hastily glued back together again. Graham, the story went, had been in a fight with the label. Unhappy with the company's treatment of the group, he had snatched the tape out of Stiff's owner Dave Robinson's hands and run off with it. Sadly, this wasn't true - the track had simply been mastered over leader tape - but it helps shed light on a group who, despite having an extremely intelligent songsmith in Day and arguably the most effusive and soulful white vocalist since Marriott and Winwood, never quite managed to make it.
