Prism Tats front man Garett van der Spek knew from an early age that rock and roll was not only his calling but his window-and rocket ship-to the outside world. While proud of his South African origins, it was through his parents record collection that he was spoon fed western rock 'n roll, pop and R&B, and it left it's mark. Although Prism Tats began as a one-man band with a drum machine keeping beat for van der Spek's quite modestly self-described "yelping and noodling", it has quickly gained momentum: after enlisting a live drummer, local performances at the Bootleg, the Echo and the Growlers 3rd annual Beach Goth Party have begun to turn Angelenos' heads. Their debut, self-titled, album is bookended by the reverb-laden "Pacifist Masochist" at the start and the back-to-back tag-team of "Haunt Me" and "Know It All" at the finish. This trio of songs recalls the ghostly throwback groove-stomp and fuzzy warmth of bands like The Jesus & Mary Chain and The Raveonettes, with Van der Spek flexing his vocal chops in different registers.
