Notes From Thee Underground Tour
Pigface members ruled the Glam Slam in downtown
Los Angeles on November 17th, 1994
Pigface is an offshoot of prevailing bands such as:
Pil, Ministry, Killing Joke, Hyperhead, Skinny Puppy, My Life With The Thrill
Kill Kult, Throbbing Gristle, Crunch, Evil Clowns, Silverfish, Die Warsau
and Psychic T.V.
Each member at the Los Angeles show added to the amazing sound of the
well known supergroup. Martin Atkins, producer of Pigface, runs the Invisible
label. Martin Atkins formed Pigface over three years ago in 1991 with the
first Pigface CD, "Gub". "Gub" featured these outstanding
musicians: Marin Atkins, Bill Rieflin, Ogre, Paul Barker, En Esch, Chris
Connelly, Trent Reznor, Yow, Albini and Schultz.
At The Notes From Thee Underground Tour, Atkins continues to play incredibly
on drums, creating his throbbing rythms of dementia. He uses Pearl drums,
Zldjian cymbols, Aquarian drum heads and Trueline sticks.
When Meg Lee Chin gripped the mic with her silver gloves, she sang with
a cool, harsh but harmonious vocal style. Dressed in all black with an ominous
dull light shining on his face, Nivek Ogre from Skinny Puppy, sang, "Asphole".
Charles Levi appeared courtesy of My Life With The TKK, adding vocals and
Taime Downe on vocals, and Pat Sprawl both joined in on guitar. High-energy
vocalist Mary Biker, perfomed from Gay Biker's On Acid and Hyperhead. Evil
Clown's, James Teitelbaum played on keys.
Even headliners, Evil Mother's vocalist had to join in the festivities
with Meg Lee Chin singing, "Fuck It Up." Great lyrics and sung
live by Genesis P. Orridge on, "Your Own You Own". Pigface is
the ultimate variety, many vocalists, musicians, and a super stage show
to match. They've made the Glam Slam one of the best clubs to see a live
