Pig In a Can
A New Perspective On the Blues

PIG IN A CAN, the collective name for the musicians on this recording, moves the blues into another universe. Its futuristic-primitivism is in the groove of Moby, R.L. Burnside and Fatboy Slim, only hipper, more outrages. It has a broad appeal that goes way beyond merely the blues audience. This album morphs cross-cultural musics, electronica, jazz, spoken word and the blues into something completely original. The project is the brainchild of producers Chris Millar and John Wilson, a former member of Meat Beat Manifesto. Open up PIG IN A CAN, and travel both backwards and forwards to a new musical place.
