The Prefab Messiahs

The Prefab Messiahs return (again) with “Psychsploitation Today”

Since the initial creation of the garage/psych weirdo collective The Prefab Messiahs in 1981, the band has disbanded and banded again several times, scattering new releases as they came and went. The band’s newest release, the cynical Psychsploitation Today, continues their sonic narrative of the past while highlighting the hysteria of today. The Messiahs are as weird as ever on Psychsploitation, locking into a psych sound of the mid/late 60s when it was hip to be as weird as possible; the whole record is a swirling conglomerate of surf and garage music, chanky tamborine, chorus-drenched harmonies, and a not so subtle nod to the current administration in power (“The Man Who Killed Reality”). Get weird with Psychsploitation Today below. -Charley Ruddell

The Prefab Messiahs Release New Video for New Single, Sometimes Sunnydaze

 The Prefab Messiahs formed in 1981 in the art-punk scene of Worchester, Mass.  While their initial run lasted just over a year, they reformed in 2012 and began writing new tunes that are as relevant now as they were when their career started.  The band blazes through your speakers with a sound that is two parts 60s power pop, two parts brit-punk, with a dash of psychedilia.  Their newest single, "Sometimes Sunnydaze" is an ode to staying inside on beautiful days, and yet is a must-add for your summer beach playlist.  Check out the music video in the link below. -Brian Varneke
