When Unsane bassist Dave Curran started writing songs
on guitar with drummer Jim Paradise (Player's Club, Freshkills, Hellno)
the name they tossed out for their fledgling project was simple: PIGS.
"We figured it was short enough that press and promoters couldn't fuck
it up." Producer Andrew Schneider (Cave In, Converge, Made Out of Babies,
Unsane, Keelhaul) was invited to fill-in on bass for a couple of shows
and, much to their delight, has refused to leave.
The sound? PIGS sound like the last forty-five minutes of that interminable
haul from Portland to San Francisco when both patience and air conditioning
are long gone; like a petty, early-morning drunken argument in a gravel
parking lot about the stupid, impossible math of how to divide forty-one
dollars three ways; like when the left rear bearing on the van that's
been squealing and then grinding for days finally gets hot enough to weld
itself into the axle and the ancient Detroit Deathtrap grates to a final,
shuddering halt. Pigs sound like three guys who have played countless
shows in many bands for a couple of decades in several dozen countries
and still can't leave it alone.
