The NME described them thusly "Their music is as bleak, cynical and loveless as their personalities, with a perverse humour. Their relationship to orthodox rock music is tenuous, at the closest a horrendous doppelganger parody. At its best their music can have a frightening intensity.

Suspicious and arrogant, they have no friends, want none and despite creating an evolving sound, their potential for recognition is limited." The Prefects only ever recorded 10 tracks, 4 of them for a John Peel Session & only ever had 1 single out (posthumously of course). Some of the members later became known as the post-punk group The Nightingales (UK) and they briefly reunited in 2001 for another Peel Session which included the 7 second song VD now available on the posthumous CD "Amateur Wankers".
