NOISY PIG: Disaster #1

     More reviews by
Title: Disaster #1
Format: CD
Label: Cochon Records
Rated: *****
Noisy Pig is the musical project of an Italian guy called Bernardo Santarelli. He was already active with the no-wave band Dada Swing and formed Noisy Pig once he moved from Rome to Berlin in 2004. His particular kind of electro-pop make me recall the same approach to music that Shonen Knife had: really joyful and childish with fluorescent colors and a different vision of life. What's different with Noisy Pig is its dadaist influence that make turn the whole atmosphere into a surrealist dream. Listening to "Hulla hulla", "Fantasma pt.2" or "Wrong time cap-su-le" it's like to imagine Teletubbies in acid (I mean... more than their usual) or it's like having all your old toys revolting and making funny sounds while coming down from the attic looking for you! The insane thing is that songs like "Disaster!" are also able to make you dance... If you want to taste a bit of Noisy Pig world, you can visit Poopsy Club in Berlin where Bernardo is resident dj (there they have the funniest queer parties, from what I read into the band bio).
