9/10 Brian Staff review, 21 February 2008
Also of huge interest (but probably less "importance" to the beard stroking massive) is The Prefects 'Amateur Wankers', an insult levelled at them by some dozy prick with no ears. This is the band that predated The Nightingales, Birmingham's post punk legends. Even Prefects transcended the constraints of punk. 'Going Through the Motions' reminds us more of cult legends This Heat!, a swirling, hypnotic slow-mo dirge with minimal chords, retrograde tub thumping & hazy vocals that make me think of Josh Homme's Desrt Sessions. THAT ahead of their time. They only ever recorded 10 tracks (all here!) , 4 of them for a Peel Session & only ever had 1 single out (posthumously of course) The majority is skittering buzzsaw joy with great harmonies & jittery drums, the most pure expression of DIY punk you can get. It's great to hear how they blossomed later into Nightingales, the seeds all sown here. A vital document if you like outsider bands such as Wire, Swell Maps & The Fall. Also CD only on Acute
