WHITE PIGS s/t 7" (1984)
White Pigs were from Connecticut, and played shows, and recorded this awesome raw punk ep in 1984. The band originally formed in 1980 out of the ashes of Zak at the Soda Boys. W.P.'s had many, many line up problems right up until their demise in 1989. The band went from playing aggressive hardcore punk, that at times reminded me of the Abused, or Antidote to thrash metal with double kick drums, and solos. No idea what these dudes were thinking at the time. The metal version of the band released an LP on the combat bootcamp series. This ep came out on Switch Kwilson and is perfect in my opinion. Its been said that only 400 of these exist. I've No Idea, as the band members are still squabbling on mssg boards and web sites. Please leave a comment if you download. Its a positive part of doing this blog, the interaction with people. thanks.
