Red Snapper – Keeping Pigs Together (89)

December 8, 2009

Red Snapper’s best work was in the Nineties, but they lasted long enough to release their third and final album for Warp in 2000. The opening Keeping Pigs Together best reflects their earlier work: funky, hard, uncompromising. It’s tracks like this which caused me to dream of Red Snapper interchanging members with the Dirty Three and Medeski, Martin and Wood to play freakout live sets.

Those dreams were shattered when, one much delayed farewell EP aside, Red Snapper became dormant for most of this decade. Now they have recently reformed, I can dream again.
