pig destroyer in the washington post

into the darkness

I have a sneaking suspicion that this won’t actually appeal to anyone but me, but I did enjoy this article in The Washington Post about Pig Destroyer, quite a bit. It’s nice that the author of the article makes a sincere attempt to approach their music with an open mind, despite the fact that he has no interest in metal. But what was most interesting to me was the insight into the lives of the members of Pig Destroyer, how some of them are pretty well put together and live relatively normal lives, while some of them are going down the burnout path. I also thought it was pretty funny that the dude that founded PIG DESTROYER (read: cop destroyer) works for the fucking Department of Defense! The article really highlights what a weird, contradictory space metal occupies in our culture, both for the people playing it and the people listening to it.

A MAN AGAINST INSANITY by Paul de Kruif.
The story of a doctor who conquered his own insanity and now shows others the way back, by the author of Microbe Hunters.
"An old master Paul de Kruif surely is. His latest book has pace, it has style, it has a sharply drawn hero, and, most important, it tells one of the great stories of our times." -Washington Post and Times Herald.

I found that in the back of a copy of Nova Express by William S. Burroughs.
