Nick Prol & The Proletarians
Nick Prol is an artist and musician based in Tucson, Arizona. He’s a super cool dude and has amassed an incredible roster. He is working on a new album with his band, Nick Prol & The Proletarians. Here’s some information.
The album is being produced by the one and only Ian Beabout and features artists like R. Stevie Moore , Rob Crow (Pinback ), Thymme Jones (Cheer-Accident ), and members of Sleepytime Gorilla Museum , Knifeworld , Secret Chiefs 3 , Thinking Plague , Bent Knee , and more.
It’s a veritable “who’s who” of weird music!
I shamelessly begged Nick to let me participate in some way and he offered a guitar solo opportunity. He asked for something like Adrian Belew in King Crimson’s Discipline era. I threw in a little Fred Frith for good measure and captured the solo you see and hear above.
One thing I’d like to note: I’ve never let myself “go” like I did with this solo. It’s the first time you’ll ever see me move while playing the guitar. My wife once called me “an impenetrable monolith,” which I’d say also describes my guitar playing. It was a lot of fun recording this and I was highly surprised to see the video afterward.
