Groundscore: Pigface

OH... MY... GOD... I fell off hard on my Groundscore music posts. But I'm back and I'm ready to finish the series. SO LET'S DO THIS!

Today's song is an ode to Jamie, Conrad's sister. You might hear the lyrics and think that we hated Jamie, but nothing could be further from the truth!

In fact, Jamie was awesome to us! She used to drive us places, let us use her stuff, invite us to hang out with her older cool friends, and she was super supportive of all of our insane creative pursuits.

So what did we do to repay all that kindness? Conrad wrote a song called "Pigface" and we dedicated it to her.

Conrad's on vocals and guitar, Zach's on bass, and I'm on drums.

Structurally, this is a really interesting track. It's a fusion of a bunch of Conrad's inspirations at the time, from punk to metal to classic rock to oldies (around 0:25 we quote an old rock n' roll tune... I forget the name of the song).

As Groundscore songs go, this is one of my favorites. I like the heavy garage sound, Conrad's guitar work on the breakdown (especially the opening riff at 0:50), and I've always enjoyed my raw drum work from the same section.

EDIT: Conrad adds, "Now I should say this, the song isn't necessarily ABOUT my sister, we were hanging out when I wrote it. So I guess it kind of reminds me of her? I should have written a cooler song...."

Next, I share my perennial teen anthem, "I Went to the Prom with Your Mom."
