Laugh, Fight, Laugh, Happy Birthday to the Ill Saint M, Justin Pearson 12”, A Pig’s Orphan, 9/24/13

Originally released on a flexi disc packaged with Justin Pearson’s book How to Lose Friends and Irritate People, the track “Pig’s Orphan” gets new life here with help from Nick Zinner (Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Head Wound City), Mr Henshaw (Planet B, Satanic Planet), Melt-Banana, D-R-U-N-K, Duran Duran Duran, Trap, and Satanic Porno Cult Shop.

The original track is harsh, forward-pushing, gritty techno in the manner of All Leather. The remixes follow suit but diverge wildly. Here are five words about each track.

-Original track. Sketchy punk death club banger.

-Instrumental version. Soundtrack to your best night.

-Melt-Banana. Video game futurism speed dream.

-Nick Zinner. Let’s get harsh, my enemies.

-D-R-U-N-K. Throw up, laugh, fight, laugh.

-Trap. Bird sounds and anxiety squeal.

-Duran Duran Duran. Chopped up and totally fucked.

-Satanic Porno Cult Shop. More chopped than ever before.

-Mr Henshaw. Insect eats face, dance now.
