The Prisoners - 1982 - A Taste Of Pink

First up are the Prisoners  andtheir 1982 album that launched the band, pressed  up originally on their own Own-Up label. The first Prisoners album I ever bought  was actually their second LP, Thewizermizerdemelza, but after loving that so  much I immediately set out to find the first one. Thinner in sound that any of  their subsequent albums, this one captures all the energy and youthfulness of a  band finding their sound and is perhaps their most"mod"in a strict  sense.

Graham Day's throaty vocals and slashing guitar  play perfectly off of James Taylor's organ work, especially on instro songs like  "Creepy Crawlies" and "Come To The Mushroom." Hints of psych emerge in the title  track and "Coming Home" is a garage rock classic. Also really cool is the  hip-shakin' "Say Your Prayers," dominated by a simple yet effective '60s-style  beat and riff.
2003 - Alan Wright
