PRE's first outing had an entire audience locked outside, watching through barred windows from above. In the months that followed, the band's rhythmically infectious skip-alongs were demonstrated on a flurry of releases. PRE's debut 7" Treasure Trails caught ears by surprise and wouldn't let go. A rash of vinyl came in quick succession, pairing the band with acts like AIDS Wolf, Dmonstrations, Bardo Pond, and Comanechi. Most bizarrely, just last month Skin Graft seized a bootleg 7" for lawful distribution. Packaged in a calendar sleeve of compromising band photos, the record is moving at high velocity in collector's circles, adding to PRE's ascending allure.
Recorded in a pizza storage unit with Westminster Brown at the controls, Epic Fits is cold sweat caught on two-inch tape. Those initial moonbeams shining through barred basement windows have been caught, meticulously sliced and diced, and reflected back in a brilliant, buoyant strobe light.
Epic Fits is available in three editions. Two are CDs from Skin Graft Records: a standard jewel case and an individually numbered "first edition" packaged with a fold-out poster sleeve and encased in an embossed metal box. The gatefold vinyl LP is available from Lovepump United.
