PREFECTURE: Self-titled: 7” EP

Four concise blasts of angry punk that would have been called “hardcore” if i would have fished this record out of my mailbox between the summers of 1981 and 1982. I was cranking this record this afternoon, trying to put together some vague theory about it sounding like Black Flag playing “Bloodstains” when my girlfriend walked in the room, and said it sounded like Eric Cartman singing, and now that’s all i can think of when i listen to it. Oh well, the Cartman giveth and the Cartman taketh away. BEST SONG: “Automatic Labor” BEST SONG TITLE: “Patriot Act I” FANTASTIC AMAZING TRIVIA FACT: The first sentence of this review is not a complete sentence. Also, i can’t figure out if the guy on the cover is Robotman of the Doom Patrol in a suit or not.
