All Music Guide:
Another one-man band out of Madison, WI, Dominick Fernow basically makes up Prurient with a theme of anti-technology and anti-electricity -- with the exception of his microphones and four-track recorder. Backing Fernow's stance up is his unconventional use of banging objects together to create music; playing with live wire, pennies, frying pans, toolboxes, scrap metal, and used shotgun shells are an example of some of his instruments. Through his many hours of recording in is home studio, Prurient recorded and released a split EP with PCDS in 1998 and a full-length the next year entitled Blades Steam Red Sweat, Inside the Things I Dread on his own Hospital Records.
