Monday's Long Song

Not my idea of course, but as I can't be arsed to bring you any of my own, I thought why the hell not join Drew, Adam, Swede, et al and do a Monday Long Song thing? I was going to post this last week, but I had that Anniversary post lined up so I held it over. At the time of writing, I've been listening to the brilliant new album by Geordie boys Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs. In case you don't know, this lot sound like a cross between Hawkwind, Motorhead and Black Sabbath and make a most terrifically heavy noise. I was in a bad mood last weekend so played 'King Of Cowards' loudly in the kitchen while I ironed a couple shirts (how rock 'n' roll, eh?) and it cheered me up no end. Which is more than I can say about the family house rabbit Eric who was none too impressed. He's more of a reggae kind of guy, so the sound of heavy, Sabbath-esque riffs booming forth kind of freaked him out a bit.

The track I've chosen is not from the new album as its longest offering is a mere 8 minutes 52 seconds in length. Instead, here's the opening track from Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs' debut album, 2017's 'Feed The Rats'. Psychopomp needs to be played loud and will annoy your neighbours, scare your pets and terrify your children - but by gum will it get your week started right!


  1. This was the first thing I ever heard by the band and I remember feeling fairly punch drunk and bewildered after the encounter. An astonishing chunk of noise.

  2. Eric is such a good name for a rabbit.
