Here’s a photo of all my Prong stuff! People have been sharing photos of their Prong collection over on Prong’s facebook page, so I thought I’d join in So what’s here?? T-Shirts & hoodies: Power Of The Damager zip up hooded top Rude Awakening 2 x shirts that Tommy was selling via “prongonline.com” back in…


Prong T-Shirt Archive

The old Prong fan site had a t-shirt archive in the Merchandise section. Unfortunately, this fell victim to my laziness and wasn’t updated after 2005!  Ooops, I have been bone idle. Anyway, I thought I’d migrate that archive over to here, the new site, bit at a time.  And what better way to kick it…


X-No Absolutes is here!!

I received my copy of ‘X – No Absolutes’ today and I’ve had several listens to it already.  (Not counting the previous days where I listened to it on Spotify while waiting for it to arrive!) So I though I’d give a quick round up of my thoughts about the new album, should anyone care…

Tommy Victor interview with Horns Up Rocks

I don’t normally share YouTube clips that I find, but I really quite liked this interview with Tommy. He talks about the next album “X – No Absolutes” and about how he manages to do both Prong and Danzig gigs.

Monte Pittman – Power Of Three

It was at the Prong show in Berlin that Tommy Victor told me about Monte’s latest project:  Power Of Three.  It’s a proper metal band with a crushing sound.  You really should check it out! http://www.metalblade.com/us/releases/monte-pittman-the-power-of-three/ Apart from his Madonna work, I’d seen that Monte was producing solo album(s), but not of the heavy variety. …


Batman’s Crazy Plan

It’s all Batman’s fault.  You don’t need to know any more. On Thursday 13th November 2014, I woke late feeling like death.  Not even warmed up.  The realisation dawned on my that I was about to embark on Batman’s Crazy Plan. First stop: the pharmacy.  Lots of pain killers and decongestants. Suitably drugged up, I…


Citizen Vein

I was talking to Tommy Victor after the Prong show in Köln and he told me that him and Monte are still good friends and that he sees him regularly. Tommy was also telling me about Monte’s return to metal with his latest solo album. To be honest, I’d completely forgotten that The Montster was…
