about

Three of Toronto’s finest musicians came together and called themselves Pigfarm. Featuring vocalist Adam Faux (The Lost Dakotas), bassist John Deslauriers (The Doughboys) and producer/drummer Michael Phillips Wojewoda (production credits include The Bare Naked Ladies and The Rheostatics), they are the Charlies of the angel of Canadian rock pop: figureheads of a sound that struck out in the eighties and found itself endlessly replicated in the nineties.

Pigfarm’s eight track album Plug dares modesty an simplicity, discussing the deterioration of the self and relationships, bouts at the bar and dreams of escaping – but without the drama. This power pop trio is a chorus of harmonies joined by cameos of the cello, the trombone, even a little girl – but without the theatrics.

Released in 1993, Plug’s thoughtful arrangements and natural progression of tempo and melody was immediately embraced by the nation, shooting the album to Number One on the college charts and making Pigfarm one of the most loved Canadian bands of their time. Twin peaking punk rock with pop rock, the album Plug will always be the pinnacle of a new sound that continues to evolve. In “ Laura get your gun” Faux reflects:

Who’d ever think that two could be one? You oughta know by now that one plus one makes three.

Such is Pigfarm: one sound, one vision and three players making sense.
