The NWOBHM (New Wave Of British Heavy Metal) swept across the airwaves in the late seventies and early eighties and helped put the nail in the coffin for disco. Alongside acts such as Iron Maiden and Def Leppard was Praying Mantis.
Praying Mantis was formed by brothers Chris and Tino Troy. In 2007 they were joined by guitarist Andy Burgess who has helped forge some of the bands strongest albums in a long, distinguished career. Earlier this year the band released Gravity, which is full of great songs and excellent production.
Andy calls in and we talk about everything from favorite cars to cooking, to the pros and cons of whammy bars!
