Singer and guitarist Tommy Victor got his start in music working at CBGB in New York as a sound engineer and, in 1986, got together with a fellow employee, Mike Kirkland, and ex-Swans drummer Ted Parsons to form Prong.
Prong released their debut EP, Primitive Origins in 1987 and full LP, Force Fed, in 1989 before signing a deal with Epic Records where they recorded four albums including Cleansing and Rude Awakening.
The band broke up in 1996 with
Victor going on to play with Danzig and, later, Ministry, but in
2002, he reformed the band with a revised lineup for some touring
and, in 2007, took it back full time.
Prong's latest album, Zero Days, is available now.
