Prutsers recorded in the living room from Jan in Rotterdam between 1983
They sound rather like the motherless sons of The Residents and an Oompah band. Obscure Inspired Insanity at its most obscure and inspired.
Especially fine are the cover versions of rock and pop standards, which firmly put those upstarts in their place, and then piss on their smoking entrails.
Henk Madrotter explains the Prutsers Raison d`etre....."we used any kind of instrument we could get our hands on, kids
toys and sometimes a commodore 64, mostly recorded with a mic to a
cassette recorder with the "ping pong" method and later with a 4 track
cassette recorder.... we did weird covers and we also did covers as
cheesy as possible and lots of our own songs in all kinds of styles
depending our mood and who ever was there for recording, but mostly it
was me, jan, patrick and robo."
He continues on the tenuous subject of influences!!!!....."most of us came out of the old Rotterdam punk scene and we were heavy
influenced by bands like snakefinger, einsturzende neubauten, this heat,
throbbing gristle, the whole neue welle you name it. We made music on
any instrument we could get our hands on and the cassettes that we made,
we never sold them but plenty of people were copying them."
