Although he subsequently got Jim (Foetus) Thirlwell to produce a 12-inch single, Raymond (Pig) Watts managed to record the exceedingly Foetuslike Poke in the Eye with a bunch of German guitarists and percussionists. A powerfully bestial singer with an outraged lyrical view (“Scumsberg,” “It Toll for Thee (Pigbreath),” “Shit for Brains”) and a good sense of rhythm, Pig also has a surprising lighter side that nearly derails the record. But when Watts revs up a thundering herd of angry noise, Pig can be a real party animal.
