in a basement, based in London, the first outing of PRE had the entire
audience locked outside, watching through barred windows from above.
To the assemblage up top, it was clear that these five noise sprinkled
nu-wavers had already figured it out - sound moves quicker in high pressure.
In the months that followed, PRE's rhythmically infectious skip-alongs
were demonstrated on a flurry of releases. The band's debut 7" EP "Treasure
Trails" caught ears by surprise and wouldn't let go. A rash of vinyl
came in quick succession, pairing the band up with acts like AIDS Wolf,
Dmonstrations, Bardo Pond, and Comanechi.
And now, weighing 14 songs and coming in just over 20 minutes tall,
"Epic Fits" will be born on September 18th. Recorded in a chilly pizza
storage unit with Westminster Brown at the controls, PRE's full length
is cold sweat caught on two inch tape. Those initial moonbeams shining
through the barred basement windows have been caught - meticulously
sliced and diced - and reflected back in a brilliant, buoyant strobelight.
Guitar, bass, bass, drum and moon shriek: PRE make the noise jump.
But the story doesn't end there, in breaking news, a bootleg vinyl 7"
of PRE and AIDS Wolf (from Montreal, Canada) recordings, packaged in
a calendar sleeve of compromising band photos has been seized by Skin
Graft Records and is now being made available for lawful distribution.
