 ”The Prisoners split in 1986 after four albums and the sadly inevitable music-industry-induced agony, but the Day / Crockford partnership didn’t stay dormant for long. After a stint as drummer for the Mighty Caesars with Chatham’s very own Renaissance man Billy Childish, Graham Day was re-joined by his old partner in 1989, along with ex-Daggerman Wolf Howard on drums, and formed the Prime Movers. Allan and Wolf had been part of the original line-up of the James Taylor Quartet (formed after the Prisoners split), but were now free agents. The Prime Movers recorded the raw and unpolished ‘Sins of the Fourfathers’ as a three piece, and were soon joined by Fay Hallam (ex Makin’ Time) on organ.”

‘Sins of the Fourfathers’ took only two days to record & mix, and consequently is almost live, hard-hitting and without compromise, incorporating years of hard slog around seedy nightclubs to the relative glamoure of the Hammersmith Palais and Edinburgh Playhouse”

Graham Day’s The Prime Movers were a continuation of story that have started with The Prisoners, this time with more psychedelic influences. ‘Sins of the Fourfathers’ is a killer garage slab, maybe one of the best in Mr.Day’s arsenal [for my money one of the best in ’80s garage revival movement]. Merging of 60’s freakbeat/mod influences, Hendrix guitar style & wah wah pedal swirl with punk energy proved as a winning combination. All tunes are originals except the cover of Hendrix’s ”Freedom”. You’re gonna listen to this record 6 times a day, OK ?!?
