Four consecutive nights of putting up these recordings conclude with the
Young Prisms, whose combo of MBV/shoegaze/fourtwenty+garage sound has
gotten some attention.
This was the first time seeing them...
Rather than replicate what I wrote for the torrent writeup, here's some
quite candid iPhone Notepad banter (talking while taping is verboten):
Floating In Blue
S: I am in Camden and it is 1991.
S: "the scene that celebrates itself", forget which uk music tabloid hack
coined that term, but it definitely applies here.
S: This is their best song, which sounds like MBV crossed w/Pale Saints
T: ALL their songs sound like MBV
S: Earlier, before the first band went on, Loveless wasn't played over the
2nd to last song, Four Hours (Away)
S: This sound like a slowed down The Last Of The Famous Int'l Playboys,
T: It's not that bad
S: Didn't say it was, just derivative
S: Plus u have a thing for Ashley Thomas. Sounds like a porn name. Haha.
With that said, ended up liking them a fair bit, though they had near-zero
stage presence...though the line from Stefanie the singer about them being
from Belmont got a few chuckles...right next door to Terry Malts, whose
singer/bassist Phil Benson is from neighboring Redwood City.
