Biography

Pigface is an industrial rock supergroup formed in 1990 by Martin Atkins and Bill Rieflin.

Both had drummed with Ministry, and were pleased with the notion of a rock music band with two drummers, rather than the usual one. The duo formed Pigface, and began a revolving-door collaboration with many experimentally-minded musicians, many of whom — especially early on — had recorded for the influential industrial music record label Wax Trax.

Trent Reznor was also an early partner, when, due to legal troubles, Nine Inch Nails were prevented from recording under that name. “Suck” — cowritten with and sung by Reznor — was something of an underground hit, and Reznor later rerecorded the song.

Rieflin eventually left Pigface, leaving Atkins in charge. The dozens—perhaps hundreds—of musical collaborators to record and perform with Pigface have ensured that each album, and each song, is unique. This practice has, however, led to some negative criticism due to a perceived lack of continuity.

Pigface concerts are characterized by high-energy performances. Frequently there will be upwards of 10 people on stage at any time during the show. Not only that but Martin Atkins and the rest of the band love interacting with the audience, and members of the audience are nearly always invited on stage for the encore.

    Pigface was Marty's deal. On his label (Invisible) and he and his wife had talked about PIgface long before it got off the ground. Reznor assisted, but he didn't give birth to this baby at all. Martin Atkins is the man behind the face. Pig. Face. PIGFACE.

    Their early live performances were so heterosexual.

    Pigface is just like most industrial bands in that every album is a couple of awesome songs and a bunch of forgettable filler.

    Hey...were these the two drummers on In Case You Didn't Feel Like Showing Up Ministry live show? That was on heavy rotation at parties early 90's. Loved them there. Love Kiss King... great drum work. Great song.

    I love these mindf***ers)) yeah, the list of members is impressive - it just means that people can work together and do a great job. It's a true talent. Here in Russia musicians will probably never learn to create smth really worthwhile collectively:)

    Every Pigface album has basically been a compilation album. Depending on what (or who) you like, you might find a gem. Yes, there are things that will rub you the wrong way. BUT, and a big but at that, in Pigface lies the seeds for branching out.
