Former Prong/Flotsam and Jetsam Bassist Issues New Digital Single
Detroit-based multi-instrumentalist Troy Gregory – best known to Metal audiences for his stints as bassist for Prong and Flotsam and Jetsam – has issued “The Perfect Monster,” a new digital single with his long-running project, The Witches. The track is now available for download at Bandcamp, while a promotional video for the track can be viewed below.
In addition to Gregory, the Witches lineup on “The Perfect Monster” includes Eugene Machine Strobe on drums, Craig Adams on guitar, Stefan Carr on bass and Mary Alice on keyboards. Produced by Gregory, the song was recorded at MCC Rock Academy in Warren, MI with engineer Gordon Carver (Ted Nugent/George Clinton).
A professional musician since the mid '80s, Gregory's extensive resume includes session work with Swans on their 1992 album, Love Of Life, and serving as the touring bassist for Killing Joke in 1996. In 1986, he was a contender for the bass spot in Metallica following the passing of Cliff Burton. Gregory's career has also included membership in The Dirtbombs and L.A.'s Wasted Youth, among many other groups. Most recently, he played with the cult Australian/German/American band Crime & The City Solution, appearing on their 2013 album, American Twilight. He has fronted various incarnations of The Witches since the band's formation on Halloween 1996. More information on The Witches is available here.
