The Cosmic Dead/Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs-split lp (The Old Noise TON001)
I have never heard of the Pigs x 7 before but this was pretty cool and psychedelic. Each band plays an LP side long track. The Wizard and the 7 Swines starts things off with a nice catchy guitar riff before the hypnotic bass line kicks in and the singer starts to have a good time, with small vocalisations and then his anger and energy really drives the music. The intensity of the guitar also changes and builds along with the wildness of the singer. Reminds me a bit of Roque Male (if anyone remembers this cool band). This song is pretty intense all the way through from the spacey start to the end with some cool guitar parts and riff changes as well. They get more heavy and almost doomy at the end. Great stuff. The Cosmic Dead, well, they do their Cosmic Dead thing and take you and wrap you up in their comfy pillow arms and safely move your mind to the next dimension. Very cool trip. Got to love the Dead, as Alice says….. Enjoy..
