â€œWhen I first saw a picture of these guys I thought I was in for some straight up punk rock. The singer has tapered pants, tight shirt, tattoos and punk rock buttons everywhere. I was wrong. What I got instead blew me away. Brophy, the mouthpiece of â€œThe Pricksâ€, is a white boy from Orange County who spits out punk as fuck rapâ€¦ thatâ€™s right I said rapâ€ (WHM Nuthouse records)
Put aside the usual stereotypes, things like style, classification, and genre donâ€™t apply to â€œThe Pricksâ€ music. Incorporating the rhythmic beats of early hip hop roots, with fast, hard vocals aggressively delivered from a punk rock mouth, we like to call it, â€œdigital punkâ€. â€œThe Pricksâ€ live up to their namesake, with gutter punk riffs, crude who-gives-a shit lyrics, and breakneck speed drum breaksâ€ (Skinnie Magazine review), which give them a sound all their own.
The collaboration consists of T-Nut who is the backbone of the group; he is responsible for all of the production for the band. T-Nut has an impressive west coast hip hop background, and 15 years experience in the industry working with major artists, such as â€œThe Eastsiderzâ€, â€œKokaneâ€, â€œDaz Dilingerâ€, and â€œSnoop Doggâ€, he is the mastermind behind the beats. The entire production is put together in a hip-hop fashion, in the studio. Brophy brings the vocals influenced strangely by late 80â€™s punk rock bands like â€œThe Clashâ€, â€œThe Ramonesâ€, and â€œScreeching Weaselâ€. Brophy boasts anti-everything lyrics displaying a frustration of being a social outcast in America, and with ta passion and protest to scream F*%$ authority! And live each day like itâ€™s your last. Unsurprisingly, this message boasts loud and clear with todays generation of punk rock and hip hop fans alike, providing a voice, and people are reacting to it. The response on https://www.tradebit.com alone has been outrageous, receiving over 300 plays per day, people are begging for more.
The live performances are extremely high energy; â€œThe Pricksâ€ incorporate a full band to accomplish a sound that is as high energy as Brophyâ€™s lyrics, and T-Nutâ€™s beats. With Yoch on drums, Dre and Nisan on rythym and lead guitars. Ozzie and Chris on bass and keys. With all these elements in play, â€œThe Pricksâ€ live performance is something not to be described as a show, but more of an experience â€œThe Pricksâ€ perform anywhere on the West Coast. Ranging from house parties to packed venues such as â€œB.B Kings Blues clubâ€(where they won the battle of the bands), â€œClub Tempestâ€, â€œThe Rocâ€, and â€œThe Whiskyâ€(April 07), and the â€œFloat the Boatâ€ festival on the Queen Mary. Where they opened for â€œPepperâ€.
Recently they have been featured on the world famous KROQâ€™s localâ€™s only show with Kat Corbett. Kat thought so much of the band she had them into the studios at KROQ for a taped interview, which will air in early 07. â€œThe Pricksâ€ new album â€œDonâ€™t Want To Be Usedâ€ will be released in February 2007
