THE PREFAB MESSIAHS PREMIERE NEW “VIDEO ALBUM” VIA PUNK NEWS!

PUNK NEWS PREMIERES THE PREFAB MESSIAHS’ NEW “PSYCHSPLOITATION TODAY: THE VIDEO ALBUM” \ FEATURES TRIPPY MUSIC VIDEOS FROM ALL 10 TRACKS FROM THE BOSTON-BASED GARAGE-PSYCH-POP BAND’S RECENT PSYCHSPLOITATION TODAY” ALBUM

“A monumental audio-visual work of towering artistic achievement!” said no one ever about ‘Psychsploitation Today: The Video Album‘ featuring original videos (and extras!) of all ten songs from the critically-acclaimed release by noted pop provocateurs The Prefab Messiahs.

Directed and animated by Prefab songmeister Xerox Feinberg, it whisks the viewer through an eye and ear flavor burst of scathing social satire, power pop pretense, jingle-jangle garage rock psychedelia — and more! It’s a 21st Century “Groovy Movie” jam-packed with 35-plus minutes of mind-expanding brain candy for discerning musical weirdos and Youtube trolls of all ages.

According to Xerox, “As far as we know, no other indie band at The Prefab Messiahs’ level of sub-fame and fortune has ever produced a fully realized video concept album. ‘Psychsploitation Today: The Video Album‘ is a monumental audio-visual work of towering artistic achievement!”

About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
