Phoenix based Prehab brings you an extensive band history paired up with a colorful vision of music that emanates the charms of its most primordial inspirators. On their debut EP, the band accounts the quintessential musical shapes that have formed the collective mind of the ensemble, as, following an orthodox opening track with a lot of raw metal hard rock muscle power being violently exploited by the zero tolerance 4/4 pummel, - the harmonic structure is the epicenter of the Sex Pistolsian original punk ethos, in case you feel you have heard this power chord pattern before - track number 2, "False Horizon", starts out with the exact same guitar riff Eddie Vedder sung "What the FUCK is this world?? Coming TO, you DIDN'T??" to in 1991. Now the timeline is hacked, all that with the approval of Walter Bishop, and you will sing "What the fuck is this world..." at the start of "False Horizon", only to realize at the very next moment that Prehab really is just teasing you. They emerge competent enough to court the cultic soundshapes from yet another-, albeit orthodox direction. During the verse structure, "False Horizon" is hasty to dress into "Smells like Teen Spirit", - Nirvana - even the trademark, badass Starsky and Hutch picking style of Nirvana fronter Kurt Cobain is payed hommage to. Approved. A decent hook that summons a tint of AD/CD gives identity to the song. Read on to know more about the EP.
"Last Time" is a solid, competent, radio friendly booze ballad I would gladly molest a pair of mannequins to with massacred lobsters in their hands, and the lead singer surely invites Steven Tyler to make a run for his money as far as the authenticity of the performance is concerned. The song is a mature, albeit deeply family and radio friendly hard rock piece, the very sub-genre of music "Faith No More" told everything - and even more - about via their quasi-satiric song "Take this bottle" in 1995.
"Not Coming Home" starts out with an Offspring riff - the thing you borrow and you invent - You Got To Keep Them Separated - but the act of relative recycling is highly forgivable, as the ensemble utilizes the central pattern in the context of a slightly different function than that you have heard in the Offspring classic. The central hook has a nice pull and ballsy heft to it that shows capacity to offer a shy - JUST shy - nod to the fist pumping power metal ethos, and the final results deem an experience that weighs in highly compatible with high octane hard rock warfare.
"Breakup Song" is the epitome of the lighthearted 3:00 minute contribution, and a well placed closure for this solid debut. A funny, and efficient honky tonk riff fills out the sonic epicenter, while the lyrical content emerges as a true testament to all things uncompromisingly and obligatory rock and roll - cops at the door, booze, eloquent promises, a breakup, - muscular female legs, please please legs legs! - and the apparent indifference of the cosmos that does not mind tolerating it at ALL. For some reason, this track reminds me of the cool movie, "Urban Cowboy", starring John Travolta. THAT Travolta would approve of this record all the way through, and who am I or who are you, and who are we to disagree? A high octane, beer-compatible contribution that isn't afraid to pay hommage to its numerous inspirators, and the production work surely is an immediate homerun on its own.
