The Prongs

Tickets: €20
Show Time: 8pm | 60 mins

The Prongs have walked off the pages of John Fleming’s lost 1980s novel The Now Now Express, having previously only existed on an imaginary cassette belonging to four imaginary ex-pats living in imaginary squalor in 80s London. But it could be anywhere the Irish have set foot in search of honest toil or existentialist insight.

Edgy post-punk music and literate, spoken lyrics provide mood music for inverse ambition. The Prongs are the fake stars of a sociological fresco. Literary. Post-modern. Post-punk. Poignant and catchy.

With music by Niall Toner jr and Words by Fleming, The Prongs present an epic new-wave sound-poem in honour of lost youth and cast-off innocence
