...SPECIAL GUESTS ON FIRE'. Prisoners Go Go Band's one and only record is a remarkable thing. It was created in the early 1980's in a South Africa under apartheid, which was not only hostile to "race mixing", but culturally conservative as well. While punk and alternative music existed, it received scant attention by major labels and no radio airplay. Distribution through record stores was limited to commercial music. Certainly, a mixed-race band influenced by Can, Red Crayola, Pere Ubu, Henry Cow, and Derek Bailey was not prime for mainstream hearing. Nor was Johannesburg in 1981 exactly the most inviting place for such a band to release its own record. But that is what the Prisoners Go Go Band did. This is a great reissue!
