Rock out with your cock out


Friday night I dragged my solly azz into Hollywood to see Bile, TKK, and Pigface at the Key Club. [Bile] opened it with a tragically short set- I've seen Bile maybe 6 times since I first caught them at Wetlands in NYC way back when they played with 16 volt, and they do a great job always. Since they were the first of four acts (I sat out the 2nd band, Zeromancer), their set was only a few songs. When they headline though, they do a good selection of songs from all of their albums and manage to do it all almost as one song, without stopping, and they put on quite the show. If you ever have a chance to see Bile in person, even if you don't like their sound that much see the show, it's worth it.
TKK was pretty good but nothing to write home about, they didn't do Sex On Wheelz or After the Flesh, their two best known songs, though they played well.
Pigface was of course the last act, and they all did a great job, especially considering most of the performers had played earlier in the night as well- Pigface has a rotating cast of characters from other bands, and for this tour there were members of Bile, TKK, Voodou, [Hate Dept], and several other bands bringing their unique talents to the Pigface consortium. The Pigface set was long and intense, not the best thing on a Friday night after 3 other bands and a long work week- I was pooped out and not my usual pitthrashing self.
Get the new album, [Easy Listening] though. It rocks.
And yes, for Suck the guy from TKK did whip it out.



Getting rear ended by a Porsche at 2am on the way out of Hollywood did suck quite a bit though.
