NOW AVAILABLE!!! 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 TRIMBLES’ song "Armour of the Shroud," he wrote "Well the Rolling Stones come to town / dont throw the Prefab Messiahs out of bounds / God save those dreamers / theyre all thats 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).
