Pigface - Gub

Year: 1991
Label: Devotion / Invisible

Those heady halcyon days of late 80's 120 Minutes broadcasts made it alright to dabble in industrial music. When a band like Pigface came along and (for the most part) eschewed the black mesh shirts, the dreadhawks (a mohawk made of dreadlocks...I just coined that phrase!), and the poncey techno beats, it validated that trip into the "Wax Traks" section of the record store. 

This particular album features Trent Reznor (Nine Inch Nails), David Yow (Jesus Lizard), Chris Connelly (Ministry), Martin Atkins (PiL, Killing Joke, etc.), and Paul Barker (Ministry) among a host of others, and it's engineered by Steve Albini (Everything you listen to).  If you have any interest in any of those bands, but are scared off by the phrase, "Dusseldorf house mix"...this might just be your entree into the scene.

It's a pig file, so I had to divide it in two.
