Prison Break / Press

“The most impressive tune was "Niner Blues" which features the rich and energetic bass of Joe Sam and just enough touch from brother John on drums. Deceptively mysterious with a whiff of North African wonder in sax melody it builds from a gentle Terence Collie solo until it couldn't contain itself any longer. Thrusting and direct by the end, the bass of Joe Sam had an earthy thumping tone like a 5 ton horse chestnut falling from a tree. If this tune was indeed a conker it would be far more than a Niner, it would be pickled in vinegar and baked in the oven before reaching triple figures at least. Collie has every right to prowl the playground with this tune in his pocket and a composition in a head that resembles the bronze patina of a prize nut.”

“The overall impression is music with an intention, rolling urgently forward, transforming the constraints of its less easy divisions into the extra dimensions that they were always meant to be....Over the course of several performances, I’ve seen the band develop and I’ve had the fascinating experience of watching something begin to emerge. Is it the familiarity with their own music that’s allowing greater freedom in terms of personal expression and musicianship ? It seems almost like they are fully dressed in this music now and are ready to start building the thing it was written for…and I feel like I might be sensing the very beginnings of whatever this might prove to be right now.... ‘Prison Break’ are a band to watch and I advise you to check them out at a gig near you as soon as you can.”
