SINCE THE RELEASE OF SPIDERS MCD PIGSTY HAS REACHED ONE OF THE FIRST PLACE OF THE TOP 10 GRINDCORE ALBUMS OF THE YEAR (ESPECIALLY IN MY CD COLLECTION) IT’S REALLY OVERWHELMING 23 MIN OF MUSIC… I HAVE GOT THE CHANCE TO INTERVIEW THIS BAND THROUGHT BIZARRE LEPROUS PROD.

2.     DESCTRIBE THE BIRTH OF PIGSTY?

Ari was singing here. Then came pause. About year 2000 band started to play againg with new group – Otyn – drums,  Matheas – guitar,  Flegin – bass,  Topi – vocals  and they recorded split cd  The Universal Pig + Monkey = Essence Of Existence.  It get out in Bizarre Leprous Production in 2001. Then Matheas leave the band and I came Bormann into and in this group we recorded The Return and Spiders. Closely of Spiders saw the light of the world Flegin leave our band. Now we have new bass guitarist called Ubina (Contrastic, Four seats for invalides).  Pigsty exists about five years, but there were some personal changes. In 1998 was recorded first cd – Demo 98, but it was musically fully out. Otyn recorded guitars and bass, Matheas recorded guitar, Pepa recorded the drums and J…

3.     HOW HAVE THINGS GOING IN YOUR COUNTRY SINCE CZECHOSLOVAKIA WAS BROKE UP?

It’s OK. That’s no problem. But you have to know, that Slovakia was fascistic state during the Second world war. Slovak priests blessed to german soldiers. After the war they added to Czech again and because of it they didn’t had to pay war indemnity. During communist era was very many slovak communists in government and they decided, that many of important factories was builed in Slovakia. You have to know, that Slovak wanted to separate. You have to hear what slovak sporcasters talking about czech team during match…

4.     WHY, ON YOUR OPINION, GRIND IS VERY POPULAR IN CZECH REPUBLIC? FOR EXAMPLE: CZECH’ BANDS PLAYS MORE DEATH/GRIND/GORE RATHER THAN GOTHIC/DOOM, SLOVAKIAN BANDS PLAYS MORE MELODIC STUFF, LESS BRUTAL
I don’t know. It’s because of people mentality maybe. I don’t know really. We are such a unique country.

5.     HAVE YOU EVER BEEN RIPPED OFF? WHAT LABELS YOU DON’T WANT TO WORK WITH?

When guys sended around their promo, no labels like Obscene production or Compremesis wanted to cooperate except BLP (bizarre leprous productions)

      6.      HOW MANY ALBUMS / EPS/ MCD PIGSTY ARE RELEASED AND WHICH IS STILL AVAILABLE?

First was Demo 98, but it was very different of it what Pigsty plays now. Then came cooperation with Roman’s BLP and there’s split cd with brazilian band Cativeiro – The Universe pig + Monkey = Essence of existence. Then came full cd The return. And now it is mini cut cd Spiders. For now is aviable only our last stuff – Spiders. Other is sold out.

      7.      DO YOU PLAY LIVE MUCH?  WHAT IS A PIGSTY’ LIVE SHOW LIKE? HOW MANY BOTTLES OF BEER CAN YOU DRINK PER NIGHT SHOW? HOW MANY PROSTITUTES CAN YOU FUCK PER NIGHT / SHOW?  CAN WE EXPECT A UKRAINE / RUSSIA TOUR IN SUPPORT OF “SPIDERS” MCD?

We don’t play live much. Only one time for a month. Our show I cannot describe – some people said, that it is very funny hell. We have no masks or fire effects or something like that. Only pure vortex. Then we are little tired, mainly our drummer Otyn, cause one concert is like play the ice-hockey match for him. So there no words about sex.:-) Then we drink up some beers, accordingly when we have to go home. We talked with people and relax. And about Ukraine tour – we don?t play outside of our country very much, cause it?s very difficult for us, mainly with transport. We have jobs too and when we want to play abroad, we have to take vacation.

8. HOW YOU HAD HOOKED UP WITH BIZARRE LEPROUS PRODUCTIONS? DO YOU SATISFIED WITH ROMAN’S PROMOTIONAL WORK? (PERSONALLY I, SATISFIED…ED)

Roman is, I think the best publisher for this kind of crazy music in our country. For now I can say, that we are satisfied with his work, but always can something be better.

9.     WHAT ARE THE BEST LABELS / ZINES/ BANDS ON YOUR OPINION. DO YOU LIKES WEBZINES?

Except Roman’s BLP? 🙂 I like very much bands from Relapse, then maybe big factories for super bands or singers like Boyzone, Elton John, J-Lo, Celine Dion, or somebody like that. In our republic are some good zines like Antitrend, which I like to read. But very instructive are some p*rn* magazines.:-))))))))))))))))

    10.  ARE PIGSTY GUYS INVOLED IN OTHER BANDS/ ZINES/ PROJECTS?

Topi sings in Mincing fury and … (oh shit, his second band has very long name). Ubina plays in three another band yet I think, but mainly in Contrastic. For Otyn and me is Pigsty sole band. Otherwise I piffle in some projects but it is nothing important.

    11. WHERE THE IDEA TO WRITE ABOUT SPIDERS COME FROM?

For spiders we decided in one of our good pubs when we eat some sweets with ganja. Our brains started to work in quite a different way and we started to thinking about spiders. So why not, we said. Just aside Otyn started to change colours on his face, stared to going to WC and when he came home he vomited.
I have to say that we are very fascination by these beasts. We read so many book about them before we stared to write lyrics.

12. HOW IS “SPIDERS” MCD DIFFERENT THAN “THE RETURN” CD AND IN WHAT WAY(S) IS IT SIMILAR? (SOME OLD FLYERS SAYS THAT YOU PLAYED GORE/GRIND AND ON SPIDERS I HEARD EXCELLENT GRINDCORE IN LAUGHTING DOG / CEPHALIC CARNAGE STYLE …ED)

The biggest mistake is, that people think that Spiders is continuation of The Return. We didn’t want to record the same cd like The Return. We wanted to record Spiders like quite different stuff with different sound, different vocal, different everythnig. And comparison: Spiders is more brutal and technically better than The Return, I think.

13.  CAN YOU CONFIRM THAT “GLOSSY MAGS WITH CDS INSIDE” ARE DEAD FOR GRINDCORE / GOREGRIND UNDERGROUND?  FOR EXAMPLE GRINDCORE DON’T SELLS VERY WELL SO LABELS DON’T HAVE ENOUGH MONEY TO PUT ALL GRIND INFO IN MAGAZINE. AND SOME FANZINES ARE MORE SUPPORTIVE, THAN MAGS…?

Yes, you’re right. Big mags in our republic support only dinosaurian bands, which play heavy or speed metal. Metallica is in all issues for example. Small zines show you the true underground. Unfortunately people who do these zines can do 2 – 4 issues per year, so informations are dead sometimes. Resourse are dayly updated webzines. They are super, but paper is paper and for example I like to read in bus on my way from work. Otyn prefer to read on WC. In these samples you have to print informations. Everyithing have pro and con.

14. A GUY FROM “DECEASED” (USA) SAID THAT  BLACK METAL IS A CANCER OF METAL, THAT IS YOUR OPINION ON EURO-BLACK-METAL-TREND?

I prefer to go to the theatre or cinema, when I want to see comedy. Many of black metal musiciants are very good and I respect them, but I mostly I beg to differ with their views.

     15.  WHAT YOU LIKES TO DO BESIDES THE MUSIC? WHAT YOU DO FOR LIVING? IS A EASY TO GET A JOB IN CZECH? CAN GRIND BAND FEED A FAMILY OF 2-3 PEOPLE?       I like to do something with computer – graphic, play games, surffing on internet. I like sport very much but recently I have no time for it. Last but not least there is my girlfriend. In our country is very easy to get very bad paynig job. But I think, that people grasp, they can get a good job. And you can play grind and have a family only if family understand you and respect, what you do. I know many musicians, who had to end playing in band because of girlfriend, wife and babies. Eventualy you can have how many members of fomily you want, but you have to have enough money to sustain them. 16. DID YOU HEARD ABOUT UKRAINE /UKR BANDS / LABELS / ZINES / SERIAL KILLERS (A.CHKITOLO, A. ONOPRIENKO..ETC) BEFORE?

I’m sorry but I don’t know any Ukraine bands, zines or labels I think. Maybe yes, but I don’t know, that they are from there. But I interest with about serial killers, so your corrupt of little girls (A. CH.) is known for me.

17. DO YOU LIKES WEBZINES / INTERNET? HOW OFTEN YOU UPDATES PIGSTTY’ WEBSITE AND HOW MANY VISITORS DO YOU GETS (PER MONTH)?

I like webzines for their actually informations (when they are updated often), but I prefer paper. I updating our website circa onetimes per month, but I know that english version isn’t so cool as I would like. When I will have some time I will try to change it. On our website we have no counter, so I don?t know how many people see it.

18. WHAT ARE THE FUTURE PLANS FOR PIGSTY? WHERE DO YOU SEE YOUR SOUND GOING WITH YOUR NEXT RELEASE?

Next stuff will be coin of The return, which is sold out. But people who will buy it get The return and split cd material together with some bonuses like photos, videos, more info,… Then we will record our new full cd. This cd will be about universe pigs, so fans can looking for total pig-grind.

19. OK, BORMANN YOUR SPIDERS IS FUCKING GREAT GRIND ALBUM, YOU LAST COMMENTS, SUGGESTIONS, CRITICS…

Life is only joke, so why don’t you smile.
