In-Store Performance: PRISM TATS in-store performance (Wednesday, July 13, 6:30, Wicker Park) 07/13/2016
ANTI- recording artist PRISM TATS will be performing a set at our Wicker Park store (1379 N. Milwaukee Avenue) on July 13 at 6:30 PM!
For the newly acquainted, Prism Tats is the rock 'n roll creation of musician Garett van der Spek; a project that pulls from various visual and musical inspirations to create waking dream sub-realities that devastate and elate.
Prism Tats was written and recorded in its entirety by van der Spek, featuring his own extraordinary vocals, drum machine, guitar, and bass synth - the work of a true one-man rock 'n roll machine.
He grew up in Durban, South Africa listening to his father’s collection of rock records from the U.K. and U.S.: Beatles, Bowie, Hendrix, Kinks, Sabbath. The unique influence of his homeland burns deeply, too. “My earliest memory of being affected by music was when I was six years old, seeing a man busking by the side of the road,” van der Spek recalls. “His name was Elvis, a self-styled African ‘rock star’ who played a hybrid brand of rock and roll on a homemade guitar. I was hooked.”
The album displays van der Spek’s unusual blend of rock-and-roll chops (reminiscent at times of Spoon’s Britt Daniel), and combines real shades of steam and heat with comparatively-meditative reverb-laden tracks, recalling at times the ghostly throwback groove-stomp and fuzzy warmth of bands like The Jesus & Mary Chain, The Kills and The Raveonettes.
Our remaining RSD titles are now available for sale on the following page:
Some titles are in very short supply while we have a reasonable supply of others. We will try to keep the list updated regularly. Orders will be filled first come, first served. We will do our best to fill your orders but we can guarantee we will have everything ordered. Thanks for your understanding.
Currently these are the only titles which may be purchased on the site but we are working on finally restoring full mail order functions very soon.
We are very proud to be the only record store in AMERICA carrying tapes, CDs & LPs from two of our favorite independent labels, Beer on the Rug & Orange Milk.
These are two of the most well-loved tape-centric experimental/electronic/synth/weirdo labels in the american experimental underground. We are ordering direct from the labels and look forward to carrying all of their new releases!
If you have ears and like new sounds, we encourage you to stream some tunes and get acquainted!
Most of their releases are very limited (some for under 100), so don't sleep!
Okay, it's not the most high tech system, but we do have gift certificates available on the site now in pre-defined amounts.
A couple great things about our gift certificates - they never expire, and we can look up your gift certificate in our system even if you have lost the physical copy. Please make sure we have a valid name for the recipient for this purpose. We will, however, leave the recipient name blank on the actual certificate unless it is being mailed to a different name & address or you request otherwise so that you can fill that out with a custom message if you desire.
If you have any difficulties, or you have a special request for how you want the gift certificate handled, you can also order them by phone or just give us the details in the comments section of the checkout form.
Shipping is $.75 for the US and $1.00 for international.
