1) Lucky Pierre is a long running band from Cleveland, Ohio that consisted of: Kevin McMahon (vocals/guitar), John Guciardo (lead guitar), Brian Dempsey (drums), and Dennis DeVito (bass). In late 1978, Guciardo & Dempsey left the band. Drummer Dave Zima and Bassist Tom Lash were added and DeVito switched to lead guitar. McMahon then went on hiatus until 1988, when Lucky Pierre recorded the Communiqué EP with Guciardo and Zima making guest appearances.

The 1988 line-up of Lucky Pierre included Trent Reznor (then of the Exotic Birds, later of Nine Inch Nails), and was managed by Exotic Birds/NIN manager John Malm, Jr… Lucky Pierre disbanded again after the recording of Communiqué, but Kevin McMahon remained in contact with Reznor and Malm, later releasing an album under the artist name Prick. After McMahon was dropped from Nothing Records,the vanity label Reznor and Malm created, he self released another Prick album before releasing an album in 2004 under Lucky Pierre entitled ‘Thinking’.

    50 bucks for the package is pricey these days, but I think Lucky Pierre/Prick is one of the few acts probably worth shelling out the dough for. Anything to keep Kevin writing music...

    Too bad people still listen to L.Pierre as Lucky Pierre, it doesn't help McMahon to be in the spot...

    Ok Moffat fans, look away for another second. http://www.luckypierremusic.com went live last Sunday. In addition to other things, they're selling an album of early remastered material as well as the ThinKing album (the former at a later date). You can get a pre-release copy of ThinKing as part of a 50USD package (which also includes the remastered album and three other project releases). Enjoy

    Is there multiple Lucky Pierre's? I know the project by Prick vocalist (ThinKing), but I wouldn't call it ambient/downtempo...
