The Prime Movers
Under Your Spell/Down and Out 7″ (Clamarama)
by Nik Rainey
Return with us now to the misty days of ’85, when grunge was what you found around your tub and every guitar in the land went jingle-jangle-jingle. Side A is a harmonica-spiced power chordal anthem with rootsy undercurrents. Side B sounds like the Del Fuegos having a bash at the Who’s “Amazing Journey.” I don’t know if the fact that their producer’s name is Townsend makes that ironic, but it’s worth noting.
