The Prisoners were formed on the back of the mod revival which hit London during the late 70s and early 80s. Spawning from the outer regions of Medway in Kent, The Prisoners were going down a storm on the live gig circuit in and around London.This subsequently led to the band's first record deal. The excellent Wisermiserdemelza is a rich medley of tracks charting The Prisoners somewhat brief existence during the 80s.Right from the get go, traces of mod and swirling psychedelia fused with a power pop sound leave an indelible print on The Prisoners style of music, which makes for an inspired musical concoction, not to mention a joy to the ear drum.James Taylor, who of course was to later form the acid jazz outfit, the James Taylor Quartet puts his groove inducing trademark hammond organ to spectacular use on many of the tracks in amongst the raw energetic guitar work and powerful vocals.Influences ranging from the Small Faces, The Jam and The Syn can be heard on much of the material.On hearing The Prisoners, one can see where bands such as The Inspiral Carpets and The Charlatans gained their inspiration from. You know what they say-if you're going to get inspired, get inspired by the best. The Prisoners maynot be synonmous or a band on everyones lips, nevertheless they were certainly a group of guys who had alot of passion and vigour for playing and recording quality music, even though they may have faded into the depths of musical obscurity. A shame as it maybe, Big Beat records had the good sense in releasing this sensational compilation from a band that if fate had dealt a kinder hand, could of gone on to far greater things.

the prisoners,the masters of 60s inspired keyboard driven garage rock are on top form with the wisermiserdemelza a rollercoaster of an album ranging from the blistering 60s rock of"somewhere"and "love me lies "to the melodic "think of me"and"tonight" to the physcadelic tinged "far away".plus seven extra tracks including the brilliant instrumental"revenge of the cybermen"and the classic "reaching my head" excellent!

if you like the charlatans and inspiral carpets you're love the prisoners. the prisoners came first, they must have inspired the carpets to became a band in the first place. this album is full of hammond organ riffs, the music is excellant. well worth buying.
