Smegma - Pigs for lepers , LP , USA, 1982 (LAFMS band/NWW list!)


"Pigs For Lepers" was Smegma's second long player, originally the seventh release on their own Pigface Records imprint back in 1982.The actual "Pigs For Lepers" recordings span 1962 right up to 1982.This is an excellent introduction to the world of Smegma - a band whose influence has slowly seeped everywhere over the past few decades - ask Nurse With Wound, Wolf Eyes, Merzbow or any of the New Weird America crowd whom would give anything to be as 'weird' as Smegma!

I bought this LP back in the day. One of the few pieces of vinyl I'll keep. It'll be great to put this on the iPod!

Thanks for this great post! Requests are the first SMEGMA album and the legendary 2xlp THREE MINUTE SYMPHONY might be a great candidate too! My compliments with your excellent blog and keep up the good work!

Yes! Excellent lp by an awesomely underappreciated group. I just purchased their recent collaboration with Jazkamer the other day, can't wait to hear it! I'll just have to enjoy this gem in the meantime.
