Rik & The Pigs have been plopping down some grade A slop for the last couple of years and we've been smearing our ears with every ounce of it. From the brooding droop of "Life's A Bust" to the greasy glam of "Don't Tell On Me" Rik and his Pigs have been the soundtrack to many a late night shenanigan and early morning blunder. Rik's been delivering some prime grime underneath all that tape scrape and on 'A Child's Gator' him and the Pigs give us a collection of songs new and old, recorded at High Command Studios in Olympia,WA and mastered straight from tape by Dave Eck at Lucky Lacquers, that finally serve as a true testament of what a powerhouse this band is live. Loud, proud, and 100% TOTAL PUNK!
"Late-’70s Midwestern punk feel with Dictators and maybe a bit of Wayne County’s more rambunctious side peppered in for texture from a band outta the Pacific Northwest. They know the sound well, and hammer away with abandon, giving already rock-solid riffs even more heft. Drop this into a time machine set for a few decades back and I can see it fetching big money from the collector schmucks who won’t pay them the slightest mind right now. Their loss, our gain, fuck ‘em. –Jimmy Alvarado (Total Punk, floridasdying.com)"
