"I love Pigs 'cause they remind me of MAN.
I know some Pigs that live in New York.
They eat, they sleep, they snort and they grunt.
I love the Pigs in LA. They overindulge. They waddle in greed...
Take more than they need. Of course, I'm a Pig too.
Be a Pig and be proud."
—from "I Love The Pigs" by THE PIGS
THE BIG OINK!

PIGS ARE PEOPLE TOO!

"Pigging out" is a favorite pastime for most of us. But leave it to Geoff Westen and THE PIGS to laugh AT themselves while they're doing it - and chuckle to themselves as they watch YOU do it! In fact, THE PIGS advocate an occasional act of repulsive behavior, as long as it doesn't hurt anyone.

Be a Pig and be Proud!

THE MUSIC ON OINK!

OINK! is a first-rate collection of Power Pop gems and Geoff Westen's quirky and eclectic layer until it hurts approach to creating music is key to THE PIGS "Wall of Pop" sound.

Each song is like a musical skyscraper—built layer upon layer until the pinnacle is firmly fixed in place. You might not hear it all the first time around or the second; but that's what keeps it interesting. Every time you give it a listen you'll hear more of the colors, taste more of the flavors. It just keeps getting better and better.

Westen's lyrics are often deceptively simple love songs dressed up as tongue-in-cheek commentaries on romance. He amuses us with his observations and social commentaries about society today—in other words, the songs are about all of us - what we do and why we do it.

Guitar crunchers like "Saturday Night," "Paradise" and "I'm Sick" will rock your socks off, while the angst-driven rock ballad "Sweetheart" will break your heart. "I Don't Need It" and "Doesn't Anyone" take you on a quick departure to explore the nasty and cold "real-world" out there and pop-tinged tracks like "Oh Girl," and "Heartbreak Street" will stick with you all day long.

The Pigs—OINK! was Geoff Westen's first pop album on Disturbing Music. Also check out the Digital Activity albums Birth and Xmas Vol. 1, and his latest Power Punk collection, Vidiots—TUNE IN!!

Front snout to back butt, Oz Studios delivers the whole pig on this ingenious package concept. Can't figure out what's on the back cover? It was certainly obvious to us, but...oh well.
