Self-described 'fictional' post-punk band The Prongs are set to make their debut live performance at the Project Arts Centre in Temple Bar on Saturday 8 July.
Dubliners Niall Toner and John Fleming form the core of the group, and will be joined by a five-piece ensemble to perform songs from their upcoming mini-album Theme Music From the Now Now Express.
The band includes Berlin-based Irish cellist Elliot Murphy, who recently worked on the critically acclaimed ‘Inferno’, written to celebrate the 700th anniversary of Dante’s masterpiece.
Other members of the band include Darragh O’Kelly on Keyboards and Ray Boyle on guitar. Daragh McCarthy will play bass while Paul O’Brien is on drums.
Toner is the band’s musical director, who has composed a catchy new-wave soundtrack for Fleming’s spoken-word. Fleming’s lyrics deal with growing up in 1980s Ireland, evident in The Prongs’ latest nostalgic single, ‘Fake Samuel Pepys’.
The track was supported by a video shot, directed and edited by Dave and Greg Clifford, who will also be providing the visuals for the Project Arts Centre show.
Attendees can expect a literary, poignant, post-modern and catchy performance.
10-track CDs will of Theme Music From the Now Now Express will be available at the event alongside advance copies of Fleming’s accompanying novel, The Now Now Express.
Tickets are €20 – and are available here. Show begins at 8pm sharp.
