“When 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 “The Pricks”, is a white boy from Orange County who spits out punk as fuck rap… that’s right I said rap” (WHM Nuthouse records)
Put aside the usual stereotypes, things like style, classification, and genre don’t apply to “The Pricks” 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, “digital punk”. “The Pricks” live up to their namesake, with gutter punk riffs, crude who-gives-a shit lyrics, and breakneck speed drum breaks” (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 “The Eastsiderz”, “Kokane”, “Daz Dilinger”, and “Snoop Dogg”, 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 80’s punk rock bands like “The Clash”, “The Ramones”, and “Screeching Weasel”. 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 it’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; “The Pricks” incorporate a full band to accomplish a sound that is as high energy as Brophy’s lyrics, and T-Nut’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, “The Pricks” live performance is something not to be described as a show, but more of an experience “The Pricks” perform anywhere on the West Coast. Ranging from house parties to packed venues such as “B.B Kings Blues club”(where they won the battle of the bands), “Club Tempest”, “The Roc”, and “The Whisky”(April 07), and the “Float the Boat” festival on the Queen Mary. Where they opened for “Pepper”.
Recently they have been featured on the world famous KROQ’s local’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. “The Pricks” new album “Don’t Want To Be Used” will be released in February 2007
