It's Linda and Mick's comically sweet 'n' sour relationship, however, played out to the backdrop of purposely grey, shambolic riffs, which makes Prolapse a cross between early Eighties Fall and an Alan Bennett play. 'How we are onstage is a real reflection of what we're like,' admits Linda. 'People often ask if we are going out together. We were, but not nowadays. It's just a really good way of getting pent-up feelings out of your system.'
Their last London show involved fans painting record sleeves for the vinyl covers of debut album, Endless Walks To Dismal Places (Cherry Red), a title that pretty well sums up the Prolapse-style melancholic Brit wit. But every gig is a marvel: flummoxing, different. Expect the unexpected.
Prolapse plays The Garage, 20 Oct, 20/22 Highbury Corner, N8 (071-607 1818) Highbury & Islington, pounds 5 adv.
