WHITE PIGS 7" EP
03. New Life
05. Pigs Theme
06. Early Grave
08. Kill Kop
Label: Swinch Kwilsen Record Productions
Format: 7" EP
A real enthusiastic release from the CT band. They have some real thrashers and some more melodious tunes. Some lyrics may be a little ignorant or sensationalistic, like "Kill a Cop, KKK", but then I've never been to Hartford. This could turn into a really good band.
-Al Flipside (from Flipside #43, Fall 1984)
The White Pigs are a young Connecticut band. Althought their themes are somewhat predictable and their music is in the straight-ahead thrash category, the production on this EP is appealingly rough and many of the songs have both highly memorable vocal parts and White Cross-like intensity (especially "Dropout," "Screamer," "Early Grave," and "Kill Kop"). That's a recommendation.
-Jeff Bale (from Maximum Rocknroll #14, June 1984)
