Mark Prindle is one of the most prolific music reviewers on the internets, and in fact has actually had his website up for at least 10 years. Unlike other music critics, a Mark Prindle review is never TL;DR. He has always had a knack for being able to lulzify his record reviews, due to the fact that he is basically batshit crazy when writing them.
He reviews a lot of punk rock groups, but also a lot of other shit as well across a plethora of genres. He has also conducted many, many interviews with famous musicians, many of which are found on his site and some are quite incomprehensible because of you not being able to understand the context in which they were carried out.
Here are a few quotes just to demonstrate how zany Mark Prindle can be.
Mark Prindle used to have an article on TOW, but the deletionist scum got to him and now he has been denied an article, despite the fact that anon spammed the AFD with a shitload of references where he'd been mentioned in books and all sorts of shit. However since the Wikifags disregard new contributors' work due to the hierarchy that cannot assume good faith on the part of anon, the article remains deleted to this day.
He also mentions an indie band called "!!!", or "CHK CHK CHK" in the Richard Hell interview. Sceptre knows well about CHK CHK CHK, as when on the MediaWiki title blacklist on Wikipedia responding to Grawp vandalism, Sceptre raised concerns about blacklisting three exclamation marks, just in case the band released a new album with three exclamation marks in the title. Whilst irrelevant to Mark Prindle, there is also a title whitelist containing good white titles that are not blocked as opposed to the nasty, dirty, black ones which is pretty much proof that Wikipedia is racist if you could find evidence for it. Wikipedia is also clearly an advocate of ethnic purity; due to the blacklist being altered with an edit summary of "if you're mixing Cyrillic and Greek in one title, you're probably up to no good (will allow simplifying the HAGGER regexps, but too tired to do that now)".
All of this is pretty much as relevant to Prindle as any of his reviews are to the band or artist in question, lol.
