PIGMAN



PIGMAN
Lots of people have asked me over time, "Whats the deal with Pigman"? So I thought I'd set the record straight.
"Pigman" was an old pig farmer that lived on a desolate stretch of local backroad near our hometown.
He was always surrounded by a pack of barking dogs, everywhere he went, which was only up and down the road.
Pigman lived without electricity or running water, in an old trailer in front of his pigpens.
Local rednecks from the town tormented Pigman by shooting his pigs from across the river with bows and arrows, driving by his house at all hours honking their horns and by stealing his pigs to roast.
"Pigman" eventually died...he was found dead in his trailer by a neighbor. When they did the autopsy, they had to actually cut the socks off of his feet...Despite this, we're sure there was still a spot for him in "Pigman Heaven".

There is an actual story, told by our friend Art Howse which inspired the song, and it goes like this:
Corky Legue's old man went on down to Pigman's farm to buy a little pig, and took Corky along.
Pigman had some pigs in that pen that weighed over a thousand pounds, and he never trimmed their eye-teeth, so they
grew up, like the tusks on wild boars.
Pigs are meat-eaters. They'll gind you up, bones and all...a pig'll eat ya, bones and all. A pig'll eat ya, bones and all.
Pigs are smart, too...and they stick together. If you take one pig, you've gotta take 'em all.
Pigman reached down into the pen and pulled up a squealing little baby pig by its tail and said, "They don't steal many pigs around here, Corky Legue," ...and a hundred pig-soldiers come up out of the mud... a hundred pig-soldiers come up outta the mud and they started batterin' down that ol' pigpen...they started batterin' down them old pallets...they were comin'...comin' for Corky Legue...

French Riots In Context


Wise words of the King:
"We here are all dedicated to the betterment of the conditions of man's life; we all know the sorrows and misery of those who do not live but merely exist, the lot of men whose living conditions are sub-standard. But when we speak of the betterment of man's life, we mean not merely the economic improvement of living standards. We refer, in addition, to the spiritual condition in which man lives, for just as a man without means to feed his hunger and to clothe his nakedness can take no pride in his existence as a human being, so, also is one who is reviled and discriminated against because of his race or religion, robbed of his self-respect and human dignity."
