Pig Power

Chi-Pig, an Akron Ohio punk band, and myself recorded a spec album at Criteria in 1979 and 80. We did it during the evening hours, in various rooms with several different engineers, when there was some free studio time. As I recall I was working a double shift, engineering Julio Iglesias during the day and producing the Pigs during the night. 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 a.m. The Albert Bros. convinced Mack that it was cool to allow the project to happen.

The project was never picked up even though Chi-Pig had a strong regional following and made a big impact on the early Miami punk scene. Fast forward 25 years, Sue Schmidt Horning is doing her doctoral thesis on the beginnings of analogue recording technologies. She interviews me for the paper and casually mentions she has a tape of mixes of the songs recorded in Miami.
A CD is born. Check it out here
