Prinzhorn remind me of the lamented 120 Minutes that used to bleed out my TV from MTV2 back in them Noughties: the sinewy basslines, the home-made videos, the intensity on their faces. Usually some top notch animation as well. But MTV only has eyes for Hulk Hogan these days. Douches.
"Fuck-bruises on skinny arms" - that's a good line. There's a timely, late Seventies/early Eighties economic downturn feel, summoning up Gang of Four or The Fall or Young Marble Giants. "Skinny trees/Naked in winter/Britain in Bloom": are you sensing a pattern? Sparse and insomniac and wintry. Elegant strumming. And I absolutely love bassline-heavy musics.
And at the end, "Shake Your Jar" reminds us to "rattle their cages" and "let the fight back in". Sleek and to the point, yeah?
