Music to Inspire – Pigface Collective

Pigface is a really wicked band →   I listen to them when I draw and make things.426px-Pigface_1991

Wikipedia says they’re an industrial super-group from the 90s, but it’s hard to find information about them so I choose to love the music without any desire in knowing their history.

Pigface isn’t REALLY a band, more like a collective of artists into the same kind of music.
