In the first of an occasional series, in which I exclusively reveal what has influenced your favourite bands and artists, a look at Prong.
Their 1994 album Cleansing produced the fan-favourite Snap Your Fingers, Snap Your Neck , but fifteen years later I can exclusively reveal that the band were greatly influenced by none other than knees up cockney lounge rock n’ rollers from the 1970s/1980s- Chas & Dave.
If you don’t believe me, compare the bass intros to Gertcha and Snap Your Fingers below:
Uncanny isn’t it?
Look out for part #2 of this tenuous series sometime in the future…
