Synopsis

Amazon.com
The CD reissue of Gub and its Spoonbreakfast remix EP shows why Pigface's entrance into the world of industrial was so heralded. Brainchild Martin Atkins enlists friends like Trent Reznor, Skinny Puppy growler Ogre, KMFDM's En Esch, the Jesus Lizard's David Yow and others for a twisted jam session, giving them sanctuary from commercial restraints on his own label, Invisible. This sometimes results in useless cacophony (Atkins, a drummer, spends most of his time with Ministry's Bill Rieflin, another drummer), but at its best Gub spews out classics like the Trent Reznor-sung "Suck," which he later covered on Nine Inch Nails' EP Broken. --Liisa Ladouceur

CD Reviews

An industrial flight of fancy.
Alabaster Jones | 11/02/1998
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Too much industrial music these days is little more than synth-pop with a few distorted guitars on top. While I'm a fan of synth-pop, there are times when my ears need something a little more meaty. When it comes to music, Pigface serves up thick, juicy slabs. Pounding, growling drum & bass arrangements layered over machine noises and tape loops reminiscent of musique concrete. It certainly won't be everyone's cup of motor oil, but it would win points for sheer audacity even if it weren't so engaging."
Gub and Fook

"The rest of Pigface's albums have their moments, but they never got better than the two perfect releases Gub and Fook.This music is unclassifiable, unrelenting, and utterly maddening.
I've heard that even many of the musicians who worked on this album don't like it. But it's one of my favorite albums. I could listen to it all day long... i might be insane afterwards, but i could do it.As soon as the first 20 seconds of the pounding screeching Tapeworm have played, you'll know whether this album is for you or not. Tapeworm, by the way, is one of the album's highlights in my opinion.. with vocals by Ogre from Skinny Puppy. Other reasons to check out this album: Blood and Sand, Little Sisters, Suck, Weightless.. persons who might enjoy this album: fans of Skinny Puppy, Einsturzende Neubauten, Chris Connelly (not the MTV guy), KMFDM, Stockhausen, John Cage, Killing Joke.If you are fans of these artists, but find that Gub isn't your cup of tea, then i recommend Fook.. Pigface's second full length studio album. It's much more 'user friendly'. If you find that Fook isn't your cup of tea either, then i suggest giving up on Pigface."
