Editorial Reviews

Ten+ years of Pigface painstakingly edited and remastered on the 19 song Disc one. Unreleased tracks and 'lost' performances on Disc two make this essential for the long-time fan and the first-time Pigface curious, frightened by the extensive catalog. T

Pigface has put out so many releases in the past ten years that it has been hard to keep up. For me, only Fook was consistently good, but the other albums had some really brilliant tracks. I applaud Martin Atkins effort to combine all this brilliance on one CD, Ok, 2 CD's. The first CD is a proper "hits" package with the strongest tracks culled together from Pigface's 11 releases. The second CD contains remixes, radio spots, and unreleased material. All in all, this is an excellent introduction to Pigface's impressive oeuvre. Who can deny that a collaborative project featuring members from groups as diverse as Nine Inch Nails, Skinny Puppy, KMFDM, Ministry, Revolting Cocks, Dead Kennedys, Throbbing Gristle/Psychic TV, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Shonen Knife, Pixies, Big Black, Jesus Lizard/Scratch Acid, PiL, and more would result in some of the strangest, most provocative msuic that no one has ever heard? If your musical tastes border on the unusual, the experimental and the downright weird, you NEED this one. Fans of Butthole Surfers and/or any of the abovementioned artists (and their myriad of side projects) would revel in the sound contained within these two CD's. Check it out.

If you're a fan of the industrial/experimental rock genre then you probably know the background of Pigface. Pigface started when other members of the Wax Trax community began to collaborate their ideas with a few key musicians. Martin Atkins who was kinda out of work at the time assembled Pigface, a side project for other underground musicians to make ideas with.

Pigface was never really popular, while Trent Reznor and other rose up to the occasion, Pigface was still there, touring with everyone, recruiting new members and people. It was really something.

As for the music, it isn't the thrashy industrial you're thinking of. It isn't like Ministry, NIN or KMFDM nor is it like Front 242, Nitzer Ebb or Frontline Assembly. It's alternative-industrial if their ever was such a thing. It featured loud brutal drumming from Martin Atkins (and others) growling loud base and wacky guitar. As well as some well (and not well) written lyrics to go along with the noise. There was no legit lead singer, though back in the day the only two real singers were En Esch (KMFDM) and Chris Connelly (Ministry, RevCo). They basically sang what they thought up of. Trent Reznor stopped in a couple times for his amazing tune Suck (that was also redone by NIN on Broken in an even more intense track). Suck is here on the album, and this original version is pretty different then what you've probably heard on Broken. Instead of it being a loud attack, it's just a simple drum and bass song with Trent's vocals being a bit more laid back then usual. Other great tunes on disc one include:

Divebomber - Flea (Red hot Chili Peppers) does bass for this song, really hard and fun song to crank.

Preaching to the Perverted is a collection of tunes from the collective group of musicians known as Pigface. The ring leader of this unit is former Public Image Limited drummer

Martin Atkins. Atkins has continued the tradition of P.I.L. with this umbrella group. He's also been busy with his label Underground Records. Like P.I.L., Pigface's membership his very huge with members of KFMDM, Nine Inch Nails, Ministry, Dead Kennedys and P.I.L. amongst former or current members.

The songs from this industrial band are some of the best of the lot. The CD comes with a bonus disc of remixes and alternate versions of some of the songs. Great fun for Industrial music fans and Public Image Limited philes.

Strongly recommended.

after some difficulty with underground inc and a year of waiting, i recieved my best of pigface in the mail today. i am happy. the thing that is striking me right now is that, if you're familiar with the genre, hearing a song you often immediately think "wow this sounds like Killing Joke" or "wow this sounds like NIN" only to learn that particular track has a collaborator from said band. and yet...its all distinctly pigface. its probably martin's drumming, one of the most underrated drummers in music today.

anyway, most of the songs are pretty great, the first disc being more solid (by design) than the second, but nonetheless. there's more than enough fantastic material here for an industrial/alt rock fan to justify purchase. trust me. it was worth the wait for me.

This career-spanning collection proves to be as well-rounded as the "band" is stylistically. Pigface's direction doesn't just change with each new album--almost every song here touches different genres and employs fresh ideas. Part of me thinks listening to Pigface requires a certain mood, but how can anyone describe so broad a mood to cover all of Atkins' bases? While the lyrics rarely matter, they often fit the generally industrial atmosphere. The focal point, obviously, is the band's adventurous and experimental music.

Unfamiliar ears will perk up to this overlooked goldmine of crazy, brilliant songs. The second disc with great rarities/b-sides/etc should make this worthwhile even for anyone with all of the band's material. All five of you.
