GRAHAM DAY & THE FOREFATHERS
Love Me Lies / 30-60-90 clear vinyl 7"
State Records THS-014
Graham Day, Allan Crockford and Wolf Howard have been intermittently blasting out their muscular version of Medway Garage-Rock in various combinations and guises over a period of more than 30 years, releasing dozens of albums between them. Graham and Allan were in The Prisoners (‘82-‘86), before forming The Prime Movers with Wolf in 1988, releasing 3 albums before they split in 1993. The trio were re-united in 1999 as The Solarflares, releasing another 5 albums until once again calling it a day in 2004. Luckily they re-united in 2013 and 'ere we go with a taster of the upcoming album: The A side is a gloriously rough and ready version of a Prisoners song, while the flip is a frantic, fuzzed up grab at an obscure Willie Mitchell instrumental, previously notable only for being covered in 'Get Carter' and subsequently providing the inspiration for the Prisoners' 'Revenge of the Cybermen'.
