To James and the Electric Prunes -
I've been listening to your new CD for about a week now and what can I say? I think it's great! A more than worthy brother to ARTIFACT,CALIFORNIA and FEEDBACK! All these albums have wit,humor,excitement,creativity - and they seriously rock! They constitute the most impressive return I can think of from any band. It's an interesting question - how is it that in this music "business" of calculated releases and calculated artists the best,most flat out fun to listen to stuff is coming from a self contained,self financed group not even on a label? Who needs a label when there is PRUNETWANG?
If this is to be the final Prunes release,you concluded in style and excellence,boys. You wrote your own history,reclaimed your music from the uncomprehending sham dealers (three albums I refuse to name and won't have in the house) and made it right. I'm grateful to have witnessed it.
Thanks for coming back,for making these albums and for being so damn good.
Your fan and friend,
Dale Haskell

Greetings James, man your new cd is really a whole new twist on Electric Prunes and WAS ,IS, AND WILL ALWAYS BE. Hey there is always a message you give and it is great. Man, thank you,,,you and the band have never let your fans down. I was told once "we are all part of the collective conscience" I am glad I am part of E.P.'s conscience.

Who WaS ? And Who Is?
Special thanks to Gary Pig Gold for this review


Since last we heard from those quite high priests of Woodland Hills, CA they may indeed have sorrowfully lost their founding bassman Mark Tulin. But on this, their not only latest but loudest release, James Lowe & Co. continue the reverb-ripped ‘n’ tremolo-dipped mission begun ‘way back when they… well, you know: had too much one night. In fact, right from the very opening 20-second KERRANGGG! which more than launches WaS – with Smokestack Lightning no less! – the Prunes prove they’re every single bit as, uh-huh, electric as ever. For example? Between The Cracks is much more potent a P-delic pill than even the young Neil ever offered, the contagiously subterrain Don’t Sneeze On Me sports an all-hands-on-the-pan-controls midsection that should even give Lindsey Buckingham pause (also, keep those headphones on tight for Circles as well!) and Adoration Stuck I’d sure love to see and hear The Zombies tackle one of these days very very soon. Then TOKYO sends no less than Puffy (AmiYumi) straight through the cooking glass once and for all, plus there’s even a live track – though not from Stockholm, but Brighton it sounds like – called Bullet Thru The Backseat that more than lives up to its threat. All in all, one of the increasingly rare cases of an iconic band from the dark distant recesses which somehow continue to act, and sound, as defiantly dastardly as always. Or, as Mr. Lowe himself would point out, “There is a fine line between ‘is’ and ‘was.’ If what you did is more important than what you are doing, you Was.”
