I got a Pork Dukes CD as Christmas present from my brother last year. I am not a punk music fan. The cover features a crude drawing of a woman fellating an anthropomorphic pig. “Won’t that look lovely under the tree,” my brother thought, apparently.
Actually, my brother got it for me because of a possible connection between the Pork Dukes and Steeleye Span, a British folk band that is one of my all-time favorite groups. The Wikipedia entry says it was rumored that the Pork Dukes were Steeleye Span performing incognito… but if I read the article correctly, there is no actual connection between the two.
I’d been putting off listening to this thing for fear it was just going to be 70 minutes of feedback and cursing, but I’ve finally given it a spin and it’s actually okay. It seems to be a parody of punk rather than a real band… kind of of a punk Spinal Tap. Probably still not my cup of oolong, but kind of fun and interesting.
Anyone heard of these guys?
