Death in June All Pigs Must Die 08/29/01

First 2/3 of this CD is bent acoustic English folk balladeering, strange lyrics and treatments, dark and twisted (yes, the Goths love this guy); the last third is a fucking righteous noisefest where some of the pretty previous songs are run through a meat grinder (yes, the Goths love this guy). Boyd Rice contributes (surprise!). This guy has been around a long time bringing spooky twisted heavily Brit accented near folkiness, this with accordian accompaniment and sometimes trumpet, no drums. Treatments are minimal and tasteful, but then all hell breaks for the last 5 songs. Excellent.

1) upbeat acous strumming, trumpet, accordian, title song
2) spoken intro, ¾ darker feel, nice electronics at end
3) straighter strumming, title theme returns, trumpet
4) near pretty guit strumming, almost pop feel
5) noise soundbed w/ 3 little pigs voice over and pig sounds as intro, upbeat strumming w/ more dramatic vocs, trumpet
6) straighter head nodding rhythm, more piggies, pig sounds, excellent noise at end
7) noisy distorted spoken vocs w/ overdriven big soundbed, droney and spooky
8) harsh noise, superoverdriven vocs, this must be Boyd Rice
9) more noise and feedback/dist w/ treated spoken piggy, layered bizarre feel, heavily treated, manipulated version of track 5
10) schpooky schpoken intro auf deutch, then noisiness, treated undecipherable vocs, excellent noise
11) spooky soundtrackish demonic madness, treated spoken word, looping
