PIGFACE / A New High In Low (1997)

ANHIL is a double album but there are very few contributors this time; it could be argued it’s more akin to a Martin Atkins solo album with a handful of guests.
The first disc has 12 tracks spread over 50+ minutes.  There are some half-decent tracks, and if you’re a fan of any of the artists who lend their talents you’ll maybe want to check it out, but overall it’s not up to the usual Pigface standard.
The second disc is either more interesting or less bearable depending on your opinion of professional boundary-breaker Genesis P-Orridge, because it’s the work of just s/he and Atkins.  It’s 70+ minutes of meandering musical self-indulgence split over 3 tracks.

Songs of Note: Nutopia (w/ Meg Lee Chin); Methylated (w/ The Girl Bros)
