The Prisoners are one of the great lost bands of the 1980s. The Rochester four-piece fused garage rock, post punk and classic 60s pop melodies to create a distinctive sound. Lead singer and guitarist Graham Day is a song composer of note. They released four albums over a four-year period, now very hard to find on vinyl, so Big Beat intend to issue them on the Ace HIQLP series, starting with their debut A Taste Of Pink! . Recorded in 1982, it was a favourite of John Peel. Big Beat's reissue comes housed in a facsimile of its original cover with in-depth sleeve notes, exclusive pictures, and is pressed in glorious 180g pink vinyl.

A TASTE OF PINK was their first LP from 1981, when the band were teenagers. The pink vinyl copy now a collectors item. Although a lot of the tracks on this LP are fairly basic, and best described as 'garage psyche', their energy and talent shine through - particularly in view of the sounds around at the time. This band influenced most of the 'hammond organ' genre of bands from Manchester et al., such as the Inspiral Carpets, but took no credit.
Other LPs to look out for by this band are THE LAST FOURFATHERS, and IN FROM THE COLD. Each LP portrays a different aspect of the band's talents, and therefore worth a listen.
Graham Day and his wife Fay (Makin Time) went on to form the PRIME MOVERS (with Alan Crockford)in 1987 after THE PRISONERS split. Check out their LPs on Cyanide records. Some classic guitar work (aka Hendrix) from Graham. Other related projects produced LPs from PLANET (acid jazz label) and GOODCHILDE. Worth buying from record fairs if you see them.
THE PRISONERS gig from time to time in London. Perhaps not as wild as they were in their hey day 15 years ago but the talent is still there. A band that deserved to be bigger, but maintained cult status from those who bothered to listen.
Why the power? This is a stellar release from a band at the top of the game. If you like The Strokes, The Hives, White Stripes (among the pretenders to the throne) or The Sonics, Who, Kinks, Small Faces, you are certain to dig this.
The Prisoners were contemporaries of thee milkshakes (Billy Childish et al) and spawned both the Solarflares and the James Taylor Quartet, two of today's best indies.
Support the little guy and put your money where the artist can see it make a difference. In the good stuff. Really good.
