Single Review: Reducer by Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs

The absolutely raucous five-piece Newcastle band Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs – or Pigsx7 for short – are back with their noisy new single ‘Reducer’, which left me with incredibly mixed opinions.  Instrumentally, this song is amazing.
