Loud and Quiet reviews Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs – Feed the Rats


It reads:

If you name your band Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs (hereby referred to as Pigs x7), you’re immediately opening yourself up for a certain amount of mockery. The Newcastle five piece are all too aware of that, and their blistering three-song debut album ‘Feed the Rats’ revels in its ridiculousness. I mean, surely no one can scream “I AM THE DEMON! I AM THE NIGHT! I AM ADONIS!” and mean it, let alone on a song called ‘Psychopomp’, right? Bookended by two tracks which brazenly pass the fifteen minute mark, it’s an LP marked by Matt Baty’s primordial invocations, which sound like they were recorded from the top of a mountain, and bludgeoning detuned guitars, designed to blow your speakers.

There are shades of Sabbath and Sleep, while Baty’s vocal on ‘Sweet Relief’ echoes Lemmy’s sorely-missed emphysemic rasp. The slow burns, bone-on-cave-wall drums and sludgy riffs aren’t going to be everyone’s cup of blood, but as howls into the void go, the Pigs are alright.

Five Rise Records say some words on Julie's Haircut


It says:

One of the great things about being a music fan is discovering artists you’ve never heard before. That feeling you get on first listen, then instantly falling in love with them straight away. It’s the similar feeling you get when you find a fiver in your jeans you’ve not worn for a while. That joy and buzz. Then thinking “how did i not know it was here”. It’s a very similar discovering new artists, and thinking “how come I’ve not heard these until now”?

This is the exact feeling I had when I first heard Italian noise mongers ‘Julie’s Haircut’, the opening bars of Gathering Light, the new track taken from the upcoming album Invocation And Ritual Dance Of My Demon Twin, Released on Rocket Recordings: http://www.fiveriserecords.co.uk/product/julies-haircut-invocation-ritual-dance-demon-twin/. It sounded like David Holme’s ‘I Heard Wonders’ with added Mogwai, a pinch of My Bloody Valentine and a hint of Sonic Youth thrown in for good measure. Mixed up in a blender, simmered, stirred then served…. the result? Well…..just blooming fantastic!...
