Prime Movers (Change For The Better Single + Bonus)

 Here's a re-post from 12/23/08, that was requested quite a while ago. Included are new rips, and scans, as well as a bonus track from the Nobody Gets On The Guest-List comp; sorry it took so long!!
     One thing that's fun about putting these post's together is that I learn allot about the bands that I listened to for years as well . Take for instance , I never realized the Prime Mover's didn't have a full length ,but when I looked them up I found that they recently got back together and released their first album . I think I have all their releases, and their all great . Formed in Boston by high school chums Dick Tate (guitar, vocals), Cam Ackland (vocals, harmonica), Jeff Sugarman (bass, vocals) and Dennis McCarthy (drums), the Movers were inspired by their musical heroes the Who, the Jam and the Kinks. Adopting a power chord driven, vocal harmony approach, their sound is aggressive power pop with elements of “Mod” soul and 60’s go-go. Go check them out and pick up their new record, Here's their Myspace!

great stuff....sadly, Jeff Sugarman recently passed away, i worked with his wife for a few years, and he was a diamond geezer as they say.....still, a great release. Jim, Boston, MA
