Ping is proud to present this visually stunning video from “The Hurricane Spoof”. While enjoying the pulsating beat of Motorik, director Erik Ferguson realised he ought to gather the Bergen mob; get down and dirty, not to mention semi-nude, to deliver this gritty piece of noir document. I’m telling you, this is almost exactly as…Read more
At long last, Brown Lagoon Media Syndicate is proud to present the première piece of pingoleeze prog-pop from “The Hurricane Spoof“. Ave Pingus follows the tale of a troubled romantic and his talented, juvenile monkey.

Ah… Surfin’ Microwaves. As the title suggests we’re dealing with epic material here. You see, for Ping, surfing is not a mere recreational activity or a diverter of pastime; it’s a mode of transport.
