Big Fist Johnny / Extreme Hair Stench

hpig-030 - released March 2015

Extreme Hair Stench has been active for over 20 years, releasing a steady torrent of mangled noisecore to tortured ears worldwide. Big Fist Johnny features members of Capt. 3 Leg and Juhyo, with special dragged-out-of-retirement guest Jon Engman (Custodian, Foetopsy, Brodequin) on drums, featuring a cavalcade of silly song topics, broken bass strings and nearly inaudible drums due to severely mistaken recording decisions on Housepig's part. After massive audio massaging by Mortville Records head ape Andy, it's now noisy but listenable! Released in conjunction with the label SOARS and limited to 100 copies

hpig-029 - released January 2011

slMakita "Cleveland, Ohio"

slMakita - "Cleveland, Ohio"

hpig-024 - released February 2010

Steve Makita has been immersed in noise for nearly two decades. From the power violence attack of Apartment 213, to the organic power-tool assault of Lockweld, to lending noise to terrorizers like Agoraphobic Nosebleed and Fistula, he has steadily honed his approach while expanding his range. Now, with his solo concern slMakita, he joins the Housepig family and brings forth a tightly focused slab of experimental sound. Finding inspiration in his unabashed love for the legendary Nurse With Wound, he bypasses imitation and instead immerses the listener in an open-ended sound space where grinders duet with piano, pitted metal meets the fragile voice, all enveloped in the resonance of a decayed environment. A most extraordinary work inspired by a most mundane locale... "Cleveland, Ohio" is packaged in a standard jewel case with full-color four-page booklet, and is limited to 300 copies.
Bastard Noise & Chirstian Renou

The Bastard Noise & Christian Renou - "Brainstorming II"

hpig-020 - released December 2009

"Christian Renou really should not need an introduction. The French master of detail has been cranking out releases under the name Brume since the mid-1980's. On "Brainstorming II" The Bastard Noise and Renou prove once again they are capable of creating some of the most haunting and progressive collaborations beheld. Renou brings unnerving rhythms + unsettling concrete sound; Wood fuses insect with cruel-tech; both exponentially more than the sum of their parts. "Brainstorming II" is startling in it's beauty, fascinating in it's discomfort, spacious and intense. Housepig is blessed to deliver sounds of such advanced design." - Kopish 9/9/09
This cd is presented in standard jewel case with 4-panel color booklet.
Bastard Noise & Golem Gross

The Bastard Noise & Golem Gross - "Universe of Dishonor"

hpig-019 - released December 2009

"In 2002, Golem Gross was an unknown "Skull Ally" in Brooklyn who displayed a strong sense of composition, gentle restraint & an arsenal of malfunctioning audio. "Universe of Dishonor" transports the listener to an intergalactic incubus wherein Abrupt Millipede Feeding and Stegosaurus Wars are apt titles. Abysmal canyons, absolutely blunt lyrical style & episodes of severly destructive battle make "Universe of Dishonor" a dynamic, possessed & grievous opus paying tribute to the colossal failures of man. Rather than 'just another CD' in the discography, "Universe of Dishonor" shines as a high point in a long career of dedication to premium audio display." - Kopish 9/9/09
This cd is presented in standard jewel case with 4-panel color booklet.
Juhyo - Sick Birds Fall Out of the Air

Juhyo - "Sick Birds Fall Out Of The Air"

hpig-025 - released November 2009

Co-released with Hear More! - this 3" slab was put together as a special treat for the Milwaukee DGW 2009 posse. Recorded live at Big V's in St. Paul, MN on the day after Halloween, this captures one of Juhyo's loudest, harshest and most confrontational sets - 15 minutes of piercing highs, steamroller lows, aggro vocals and bleak outlook, all pumped through two separate and cranked PA systems. Limited to 28 copies, all are now gone to the land of deep-fried bacon. sold out! thanks to everyone who ordered!
Oblong Box - Premature Burial

Oblong Box - "Premature Burial"

hpig-022 - released September 2009

You hear the scrape of a blade along the damp cellar wall behind you, as a scaly tentacle slowly wraps around your ankle... can you escape the clutches of the Oblong Box? Sinister sonic craftsmanship is unearthed in eight tracks of dungeon dwelling audio. "Premature Burial" compiles various tracks from out-of-print releases, split cassettes and compilations spanning 2004 to 2007. We dare you to retain control of your mind as infernal frequencies attack your screaming brain! This cdr is presented in a dvd-style clear poly case with full-color four-panel jacket. sold out! thanks to everyone who ordered!
Kawabata Makoto - Tales of the Dream Planet

Kawabata Makoto - "Tales of The Dream Planet"

hpig-015 - released April 2009

 The mastermind behind Acid Mothers Temple (and a zillion other projects) parked his spaceship long enough to fish this cd out of his beard and give it Housepig, before closing the hatch and rocketing back into the stratosphere. What he brought back from the Dream Planet is two tracks of long, overlapping guitar drones; glacially melodic, meditative and a touch otherworldly. Curl up in your favorite dashiki, let your hair hang down, fire up some incense (or anything else) and let Kawabata spin you a tale! This cd is presented in a dvd-style clear poly case with full-color four-panel jacket, and is limited to 500 copies.
Malachi & Bastard Noise - The Immortals

Malachi / The Bastard Noise - "The Immortals"

hpig-021 - released January 2009

Three labels, two bands, one crushing release! Each group contributes two tracks, alternating between doom-laden hardcore and deep space sonic experimentation. Malachi (featuring members of Artimus Pyle, What Happens Next? and Fuck Face) brings together a mix of crusty hardcore and unstoppable doom, all shot through with mournful cello melody. The Bastard Noise lineup of Wood, Nelson and Rauf (also responsible for the critically-lauded "Rogue Astronuat" cd) come forth with their signature oscillator-based transmissions from the void, isolated communications from beyond Alpha Centauri. This split release is brought to you by Housepig, Hear More! and 200mg, in a heavy poly sleeve with a unique shifting-color six-panel insert by Thumbprint Press.
