R.I.P.I.G./Tit Pig Breaks Up

Posted by on Mon, Nov 7, 2011 at 3:04 PM

What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, but in the words of Richard Fariña: "Its a long long way down to Reno Nevada, it's a long long way to your home." Apparently, the journey back was too much for Seattle's favorite porcine mammary; Tit Pig has decided to split after a particularly chaotic night of unmentionable antics in the biggest little city on the last leg of their tour.

Heshers all across King county may be shedding a tear, but don't despair; Singer Sean Prawn tells me there are new projects in the works. I was talking to one of their fans Ben Cissner about it, who said, “You should mention that on the bright side, we won't have to grit our teeth through a strained sophomore concept album.” “But Ben...they don't even have a freshman album...I think they just had a tape” “That’s why it’s funny”

So goodbye sweet Tit Pig, we barely knew ye.

Liberal use of semi-colons. Strange quotation arrangement, but overall a great new addition to the extremely high penmanship standards of Line Out!

Saw this guy shove a mound of cocaine up his nose at the Funhouse and then talk about his band as if they were the next kings of dog shit mountain.

They broke up? Shocking.

I thought they were awesome. Saw them only the one time, opening for tacocat, but it was enough to know sonething awesome was brewing in the Seattle metro area. Here's hoping the next incarnation stirs up as much trouble as the first.

i saw them 3 or 4 times ad every time it was amazing. these guys commanded your attention when they took the stage.... and also commanded that you throw stuff at them and yell insults at them. they sure made it hard for those people that stand there with their arms crossed with the mosh pit swirling and middle finger guitar solos soaring over the mist of beer. i guess seattle needs another thrash band that rocks as hard and truly doesn't give a fuck. RIP tit pig. it was fun while it lasted.

Titpig was awesome. A little bit a thrash a little touch of metal makes the world go round. If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all FUCKERS.
