"Cobbwebbed-basement mystery surrounds this early-80s "Wormtown"
(Worcester MA) combo that dared (if they were even aware of it) to
infuse proto-lo-fi post-punk sounds with drizzles of off-kilter psych
and lashings of garage-pop melodicism -- all informed by an attitude
that combined cryptic social digs, bone-dry wit and Dadaist
pranksterism. Anthology Recordings (a one-time digital retailer of
rare/collectible music) declared that The Prefab Messiahs "manage to
perfectly execute the difficult joining of punk, psych, and garage."
Some have waxed less analytical: in psych-legend Bobb Trimble's song
"Armour of the Shroud", he wrote "Well the Rolling Stones come to town /
don't throw the Prefab Messiahs out of bounds / God save those dreamers
/ they're all that's left sometimes." Now Almost Ready brings you the
two lead-off tracks from the as-yet-unreissued Devolver album in a
handsome 7" package. Features: art & layout from Prefabs singer Xeth
"Xerox" Feinberg and band photos by Bobb Trimble (the band's friend,
guru, and sometime producer)." - Almost Ready Records
