Pigpen (1992-1996) was the beginning of a long term musical partnership between
Wayne Horvitz and alto saxophonist Briggan Krauss. Performing primarily in rock clubs
in the Northwest, Pigpen also did two European tours as well as performances in Canada and
New York. Special projects included collaborations with Soundgarden drummer Matt
Cameron, Santana drummer Michael Shrieve, The Billy Tipton Saxophone Quartet, Bill Frisell, and
Seattle icon Skerik. Pigpen recorded 3 CDs for the Tim Kerr Label, Halfrack (1993), Miss Ann (1994)
and Daylight (1997). Also, Avant released V as in Victim (1994) and Cavity
Search offered a live CD, Live In Poland (1995), recorded at the Akwarium in Warsaw.
Tim Kerr also released a 7" single - Kind Of Dead/Pattern 56/Interlude (1993). V as
in Victim is available here at the merchandise
What the critics said about Pigpen:
"If I had to guess what this was, without looking at the press kit, I would probably say
something like, four guys locked into a studio with all this gear, lots of food, LSD, some pot,
and a madman with something new to prove. This one's a keeper!"
