Synopsis

Amazon.com
The Chicago industrial music social club gets down to the actual business of recording a good album. Revolving cast includes founder Martin Atkins, Revolting Cock's Chris Connelly, Killing Joke's Paul Raven, Skinny Puppy's Ogre, KMFDM's En Esch, and Silverfish's Lesley Rankine. Highlights includes a funky version of Silverfish's "Hip, Tits, Lips, Power!" (4 years before Rankine would become Ruby with Fook engineer Mark Walk) and "Insemination," Ogre's release valve for the mounting Puppy pressures. Embodies both dynamics (from full-on industrial assault to subtle electronic grooves) and a cohesive presence that would carry Pigface through its next few hit-and-miss endeavors. --Liisa Ladouceur

CD Reviews

A work of genius

"You have not heard industrial (or, as the members of pigface would say, "industrious") music until you've heard this album. it's the kind of music that goes far beyond the commercialized and over-done typical Marilyn Manson-esque sound, rather incorporating various new weird musical styles.Some of the highlights of this album include:ALLES IST MEIN (feat. en esch from kmfdm)- crazy reincarnation of the old en esch song "ich bin" but with fast drums and massively distorted rapid vocals. i brought this into my german teacher and the only word he could make out was "mein"! TEN GROUND AND DOWN - one of the most excellent songs i have EVER heard. featuring WONDERFUL vocals from Lesley Rankine and Chris Connelly (from ministry, kmfdm, and revolting cocks). strange slow guitar/violin combination creating an almost gothic dark sound. my favorite pigface song.I'M STILL ALIVE (feat. en esch) - a nice cheesy industrial song with an obvious en esch musical/lyrical influence. funkay!all of the tracks on here are innovative and creative, this is a must-have album. so what are you waiting for?"

"Listened to this album often as a juvenile delinquent...it was the sound track while putting narcotics into our bodies, breaking-and-entering, arson, and other mischief. I have nothing but good memories of this album!"
Music to raise your kids up on!

"I grew up on pigface and kmfdm. i remember so many nights trippin out on fook when i was like twelve....surely a little young to be listening to fook yet alone tripping out. but it was worth it. when i finally came around to listening to more popular music, found little that competed and have found myself always coming back. oh, yeah, the remix album "washingmachinemouth" is even trippier. nevermind nin, pigface rips em apart and martin atkins is one of the best drummers of our time-i hear that his elbows have been known to split from playin so f-in hard! and you cant turn down en esch. a must buy for all collectors of american underground and far out music in general."
