RIK AND THE PIGS: A Child’s Gator: LP

May 23, 2018

Late-’70s Midwestern punk feel with Dictators and maybe a bit of Wayne County’s more rambunctious side peppered in for texture from a band outta the Pacific Northwest. They know the sound well, and hammer away with abandon, giving already rock-solid riffs even more heft. Drop this into a time machine set for a few decades back and I can see it fetching big money from the collector schmucks who won’t pay them the slightest mind right now. Their loss, our gain, fuck ‘em. –Jimmy Alvarado (Total Punk, floridasdying.com)
