There was a period – a glorious, acid-dappled period – in the late eighties (and into the very early nineties) where shit got weird. It started earlier, in New York and in Texas (Butthole Surfers were probably the motherlode of whatever it was), but that deep lysergic, ugly / beautiful weirdness seeped into industrial music, metal, indie, dub and hiphop and so much else around that time. (Adrian Sherwood remixing an Einsturzende Neubaten song that Pussy Galore also covered felt like the apotheosis somehow).
I think Simon Reynolds came up with ‘arsequake’, meaning bands like the Surfers, Sonic Youth, Big Black and the rest, but I always liked ‘pigfuck’ better. You can all argue among yourselves about who was(n’t) part of this world, but the bands on this mix summon up that period for me, when everyone seemed to be off their tits and Nirvana hadn’t yet come along and ruined everything.
Pigfuck Ting is dedicated to Simon, who never really moved on...
