Do you remember the 1990s??!!

A good article here on the unjustly forgotten UK band Prolapse (here is their posthumous blog, for more information) and the crowning jewel of their four-album catalog, The Italian Flag.

Here's the opening track. Wish there was a proper video, but...

And a fan's interpretation of what might be their greatest four minutes:

Oh, just one more. An official video from their second album. (There is precious little to be found by this band on YouTube, but happy hunting!) Prolapse were both dangerous and strangely cute, like a head-on collision between the Fall and the Shop Assistants. If there are any bands like this around today, I don't know about them.

Geez, I remember seeing those albums around and ignoring them entirely. I don't remember any press either. Weird. Good songs, so thank you.

How can you resist a band who called their debut album "Pointless Walks To Dismal Places"?
