prick is the child of the cleveland band lucky pierre and basically is kevin mcmahon. the self-titled debut album is out on nothing records and consists of ten songs, some of which are original, some of which were originally performed as lucky pierre.
during the 80's, lucky pierre was a local success in the cleveland area, and released the communiqué ep (in 1988). trent reznor worked along with kevin during this time, as they became friends, and this was a friendship which was profitable to both when reznor organised his nothing label with interscope. trent was known to have done backing vocals and saxophone for lucky pierre, and produced the self-titled album.
