Pig - Pigmata

pig - pigmata

Raymond Watts' solo project Pig offers up the latest CD, Pigmata and it is a crazy industrial rock roller coaster ride.  It is a disjointed release, with each track having a different overall sound; and yet, within this swirling chaos, there is something holding it together.  I've had drunken nights that are similar to this release, where in the morning I remember only bits and pieces and while they all come together somehow, its hard to really fully comprehend.  Pigmata is booze swilling, dirty, crunchy guitar, aggressive work, with Watts jumping and hurling himself in every direction.  It spills over the top with a sort of twisted depravity and reckless enjoyment.
