Just in case you haven't seen it yet, here is the MTV set from last year.


For clarification - you can't get the Year of the Pig 12" until the end of July, unless you get it from us on tour. You can pre-order it now though from Whats Your Rupture, or Rough Trade in the UK. Did I mention it was 18 minutes long?

We're playing Osheaga Festival in Montreal Sept 8th and 9th with some bands you may have heard of. We are on the Vice stage so there will be lots of free BBQ for everyone. We're also playing another festival in July, but there is no way I'm saying anything about that one.

Our show this Friday at 538 Johnson in Brooklyn has a new venue - please check here this week for the new address if you plan on attending this show.

If, while on tour, you miss us, you will be able to see video of us whenever it gets uploaded on the following sites: here, and here.

I want you rockin' back inside my heart

Pig Public Statement

Statement from Fucked Up June 13 2007:

Year of the Pig June 22 2007

In 2007, the good become superior and the bad become worse. The enlightened continue on their path to understanding and contentment. Take a stand, speak your mind during this Pig year."

The theme for Year of the Pig is exploitation and violence against women, using prostitution as a main symbol. We recorded this while the Robert Pickton trial is picking up here in Canada - Pickton is a farmer from British Columbia who has been charged with the murder of 26 prostitutes from one of the poorest districts in Canada. We feel that violence against women, represented here by the issue of prostitutes rights in particular, is an issue that is still taboo, and rights for sex workers is an issue that people are still afraid to look at head on, and deal with in a meaningfull way. Sexism exists everywhere and as we've seen in the Pickton case, it can far too easily manifest as abuse, rape and murder shut out from the public eye. This violence is more easily accomodated when working prostitutes aren't protected by the full scope of the law in their workplaces, and when their role exists outside of the purview of our collective morality. In this way, we also view violence against prostitutes as symtomatic of our society's tendency to try and launder our collective guilt and shame through a third party, in this case prostitutes. They exist as a special part of our culture where we can lash out at them, of our own shame and guilt with sexual issues of shame and possesion, and blame and exploit them, instead of dealing with those issues ourselves. Sexism and violence agaisnt women exist, and as long as there are classes of society that we keep beneath our collective moral societal obligations, those classes will bear the full brunt of the hatred and fear we can dish out. We also with to state that "Year of the Pig" is not the attempt to condemn Robert Pickton, or any other individual specifically for any specific crime - the scope of these issues are broader than isolated incidents. The habitual compartmentalization of these sorts of crimes is part of the problem - we wish to state that sexism and violence persist not simply due to the actions of a few deviant criminals, but because as a whole we refuse to properly deal with these issues.

We wrote "Year of the Pig" according to the spacial and spiritual rules laid out in the Chinese Zodiac. We do this once a year – last year was "Year of the God", next year is "Year of the Rat". It is a special process we only bring out for these yearly rousing recording sessions. It is a 60 year cycle, so accordingly there will be 60 of these 12"'s, by us or by the bands we pass it down to. The combination element for this year was gold, so (as usual), we tried to surround ourselves with as much gold as possible in the studio – a few people came up who had fronts in their mouths, and we all had to borrow our parents jewelry. The lights from the studio were cascading off all the pieces in the room. The Heaven element for this year was fire, so we also managed to put up a huge fire in the middle of the floor. We did the drum tracks only with the fire, because we had to move the set-up onto the roof of the building. For us recording is all about balance basically – we usually try now to have certain people come in to lay down the area in a way we don't really understand – we just sit there and eat handfuls of salvia while these dowsers come in and point to what instruments are ready, you've got these geosophists pointing us in certain directions, sigils are going up all over the place, it can get pretty real in the year of the fourth trine.

New Tour

Hey. Pink Eyes is becoming a huge star in Europe right now. Check out his new promo vid:



So is Gulag:



Ps they are beefing.


Here is a live version of a new FU tune "The Black Hats". The title is in reference to this phenomenon.

Here are the lyrics to Year of the Pig.

Pigs at the trough show no fear
Fat full of death they will not starve this year
Feed stains their skin in the mud
Fed through the nose plant their feet in the blood

Pigs at the trough getting fat
Surfeit of the beast turned to tricks for a feast
Tear into the filth like a whore
Suck the meat from the bones leave the corpse on the floor

Pigs at the trough dissapear
One final meal before kissing the spear
Skins on the hook left to dry
Just use the flesh pay no mind to the hide

Pigs at the trough slit and squeal
Done up and stuck like a pig for a meal
Painted and tied and dressed up
Get it on your hands as it fills your cup

Pigs at the trough are to blame
They are the monsters we never became
they poison our crops and our name
We hate that we need them to manage our shame

Pigs at the trough live in grime
Carrion meals fit for these profane swine
No mind to the scum they live in
They tremble in fear as they swallow your sin

Pigs at the trough swell and burst
Bearing the brunt as they launder the cursed
We keep our pigs in a pen
Our place to defile again and again and again and again

Pigs killing pigs turned to pigs killing pigs
Pigs fed to pigs turned to pigs fed to pigs
The famers alseep under the tree
No ones here watching over us

Ashamed of what pigs mean to men
Ashamed of what we do to them
Ashamed of the pig in our head
Ashamed so we kill them instead

Pigs at the trough are obscene
Punish the products but not the machine
Pregnant with guilt and disgrace
Delivering scorn on the mess they create

The pigs at the trough are pristine
They live in our dirt and still they stay clean
Recoil from the stigma and hate
And suffer the pig who can't change its fate

Mr. Soul



Ok Hidden World Live is tommorow. Please arrive no later than 7 or 8pm.

Hey, we played the BBC in England a few weeks ago. They have kindly chopped our part into this handy embedded player:




The Radio 1 Punk Show with Mike Davies

Here is an article a guy sent me about Hidden World, THE ALBUM.

Here is a note from SPOC. And here:

We thank all the bands, and everyone else that has put so much effort into making this benefit happen. Thanks also to Seripop for the poster. SPOC members will be at the Tranzac and in only a few fun moments will turn virtually every audience member into our pimps under the Canadian Criminal Code. Feel free to wear your own version of pimp fashion. "
Here is an article in today's Toronto Star about the benefit we are throwing tommorow.

Sex workers' fundraiser Saturday
Jun 01, 2007 02:54 PM

Staff Reporter

A Toronto-based sex workers' advocacy group kicks off its inaugural fundraiser on Saturday in support of its constitutional challenge to Canada's prostitution laws.

According to Wendy Babcock, spokesperson of the Sex Professionals of Canada, there is an "urban genocide" against thousands of sex-trade workers across the country.

"It's really important to fight violence against women and violence against sex workers. I think this court challenge, if it wins, can actually save lives," she said.

The group is challenging three provisions of the Criminal Code related to Canada's solicitation laws. The group had its first hearing at the Ontario Superior Court on Thursday. The next hearing is scheduled for Sept. 4. In Canada, prostitution is in legal limbo. The act of prostitution itself is legal, but activities related to it aren't.

According to Babcock, the group expects to raise $10,000 overall, although she adds that the cost of the legal challenge would be at least $50,000. The funds raised will cover travel and accommodation costs for about 10 witnesses.

Babcock said if the legal team, led by Osgoode Hall law professor Allan Young, Hadn't taken the case on as pro-bono, it would have cost the organization about $800,000.

Amit Thakor, one of the members of Young's legal team, said the Robert Pickton serial murder trial in British Columbia is a "gruesome example" of how dangerous sex work can be.

According to a December Commons subcommittee report, there were 171 female sex-trade workers murdered from 1991 to 2004, 45 per cent of which remain unsolved. A 2006 Statistics Canada report said women in the sex trade are extremely vulnerable to violence which "often goes unnoticed."

Detective Wendy Leaver of Toronto Police's special victims unit said violence is a daily threat for sex workers.

"The real myth out there is that being physical or sexual assaulted is part of your job as a sex worker, but it isn't," Leaver said.

A punk rock fundraiser will be held at the Tranzac Club on Saturday at 7 p.m. On June 10, "Red Light Night" at Goodhandy's bar will feature burlesque entertainment.

Monthly fundraisers are scheduled to follow
