Check out The Prefab Messiahs’ new video “Monster Riff” via the fine folks at New Noise Magazine, Vive Le Rock Magazine, CelebStoner or 13 Stitches Magazine!
Prefab Pontificator du Jour, Xerox Feinberg says of the song and video, “‘Monster Riff’ is our long-delayed homage to an actual crazy metalhead teenager we shared a crappy off campus apartment with way back in ancient times. I traded him Alice Cooper’s ‘Love It To Death’ for a battered copy of ‘Revolver’ and never looked back… until now. The kid had a giant mullet, a padlocked room full of virgin vinyl, a massive drum set he couldn’t keep a beat on, and complete disdain for our fuddy-dud, college boy DIY garage rock psychedelic revival. The song combines a bunch of heavy influences we spent decades snobbishly avoiding and features bassist Trip Thompson channeling a fiendish Axl Rose wannabe. Somehow the Flamin Groovies sorta get in there too. The lavishly animated music video tries to make sense of it all with a shout-out to B-movie monsters and imaginary Saturday morning cartoons. Zoiks!”
