Prick In-depth Biography
Prick has one main member: Kevin McMahon. The first wave of Prick began somewhere in the '80s. There was an EP released in 1988, titled Communiqué. There might have been another called Animal. McMahon's career as Prick has kind of been a now-you-see-him, now-you-don't game. There are many rumors and questions, but few facts to be found.
In 1993, vocalist, guitarist, and prolific songwriter McMahon joined up with guitarist Chris Schleyer and drummer Andy Kubiszewski, who is a former member of groups like Exotic Birds and Stabbing Westward. The band signed with Interscope Records, but didn't release a recording under the label. A longtime friend of McMahon's, Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails, had joined forces with John Malm Jr. to start Nothing Records, and that's where Prick ended up.
A self-titled full-length debut album was finally released in 1995 under the Nothing Records label. "River Head," "No Fair Fight," and "I Got It Bad" are some of the hard industrial metal tracks on the album.
McMahon slipped on camouflage and faded into the scenery after that. It is said that he continued to do live shows now and then, under different names. ~ Charlotte Dillon, Rovi
