'Intelligent electro pop for a generation fed up of being force fed manufactured "bubble gum reality" pop'- (

‘treads in size tens on Morrissey’s bloated toes as the king of teenage bedroom diary angst’- (

From the bleak, industrial seaside towns of Medway, Al Williams and his mechanical orchestra of antique synthesisers, together make The Prosaics; performing humorously Pulp-esque lyrics to an 8-bit beat. Wry, scornful and cripplingly English- The Prosaics is a witty solution to vacuous pop.

The Prosaics has toured extensively, performing at various prestigious venues and festivals including: headlining at City Sound Project, The Gulbenkian and The Penny Theatre (Canterbury), Harbour Arm (Folkestone), Hop Festival (Faversham), Oyster Festival (Whitstable), Maritime Festival (Chatham), Tentertainment Festival (Ashford), Night & Day Cafe (Manchester), Komedia (Bath), The Bull's Head, Fiddler's Elbow and The Water Rats (London) and on James Whale's Show for BBC Radio Kent, to name but a few. Now, following the release of his debut album 'Greatest Hits' and his PR campaign provided by Impressive PR (Muse, Stereophonics) and Eden Blackman (radio plugger - EMI), Al and his synths take to the road again.

The Prosaics' songs are far from prosaic. In fact, he's hardly prosaic at all…
