COMMENTS

Fetal Pig began in the spring of 1991 in Des Moines, Iowa. After gigging around and several line-up changes, the band released a 4-song, self-titled EP in the summer of 1995, before disbanding. In July 2010, Fetal Pig returned with a new line-up consisting of core members, Dan and Jeff Hutchison with Charles Hoffman taking over on bass guitar. Shortly thereafter, Fetal Pig went into the studio to record their first LP, 'Autopia'. Frequently compared to noise/punk icons of the 80s/90s, such as Dead Kennedys, Nomeansno, Minutemen, etc. Fetal Pig's music (and lyrics) are fun, sarcastic and paranoid, combining the ferocity of punk with the angular guitar dissonance of post-hardcore noise rock and the compositional ambition of prog rock.
