60s-style garage music. An
incredible band. If I'd had any money in 1985, I would have
flown to England just to see them. This is what rock should
be, especially their first and third records, "A Taste of
Pink" and "The Last Fourfathers."
Unlike some of the other bands on this site, I was actually
buying the Prisoners' albums when they were released. I
still have all the records, although the grooves of some
are pretty worn. I eagerly awaited the day for their music
to be released on CD. When that day finally came, I
snatched them up, and loaded them on my iPod. You should do
the same! And it might be better not to wait. The
Prisoners' second album, Thewisermiserdemelza, appears to
no longer be available. Hopefully the others will stay in
These are the
currently-available CD releases of their albums. They have
numerous extra tracks, including demos and tracks from EPs
