Terminal Boredom reviews Little Black Pig

Review from

White Load "Pig Eyes" 7"
How the fuck does Mr. Kenrock release a Poppets record, then drop an absolute shitstomping monster of brimming-with-hate fuckrock like this on us? This is hands-down my favorite record of just about any size thus far in 2012. Two songs, one side, absolute destruction. "Pig Eyes" has one of the most blazingly paint-peeling guitar sounds and riffs which builds to a speaker smoking crescendo, takes pause for a minute, then blazes back in with a finale that will knock whatever teeth you have left out. A fucking burner, with vox that are almost as hoarse as the guitar sounds. How do you follow that fucker? You cover "Little Black Pig" off the Black Traitor cassette (which you should fucking press on vinyl Ian, I don't care what you think), a band that I believe was just White Load with even more of (or less of?) a couldn't-give-a-fuck attitude. All balls, shitty fucking sounding balls, fuck, it's so beautiful. Brainbombs-eque in it's simplicity of riff worship. I wish this song was a half-hour long. LITTLE BLACK PIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIG. YOU'RE PATHETIC. That's all. The real fucking goods right here. Buy multiples. Scum stats: 250 copies only, clear and black vinyl variants. What, no white? That's pretty racist. (RK)

Thanks Rich. There is a second pressing of this 7" out with new art work by Alex Ratcharge, and with the b-side from the My Wall 7".

Home Blitz is coming to Providence August 3rd at Local 121.
White Load is not playing this gig, but it will still be the best show in town because Home Blitz is a really fucking good band. Part Electric Eels part Cocksparrer.

White Load’s Alzheimer’s-grade punk.

Review from

"Hardcore is the premature-ejaculation of punk; if the sub-genre’s actually about anything, it’s hitting the re-set button early and often enough to avoid leaving fingerprints on corpses. Briskly unmemorable and unsentimentally abrupt, it wears its own obsolescence as a badge of honor. Hardcore is violence, technique and finesse, but maybe more significantly, hardcore isanonymity: generic fury as its own virtuoso reward.

Wayne’s World III b/w Godfather IV (Load), the debut LP from Providence, Rhode Island trio White Load, is textbook hardcore: lacerating chord-crunches, seared-larynx screams, riot-worthy stampedes, combative asides. Whoever these guys are (they’re not volunteering first names), they cram 25 songs in 20 confusing minutes. The song titles—“Note Note Note Note,” “Fashionable Prostitute,” “Hide Your Face,” the album name itself—are pro forma obnoxious but as contextually meaningless as the music itself is. Everything’s mangled, mangy and inchoate.

Two conflicting impulses are at play here: a willful self-negation and an impulse to jerk off in the genre wading pool. Beaters like “Milpool,” the sub-Stiff Little Fingers sneer “Barbara Ann,” and “Prostitute,” where the singer’s bloviated angst manifests itself in a Satanic scat routine are more exception than rule, and the same handful of chords are resurrected so frequently from shit fit to shit fit that it’s next to impossible to say just where you are in this LP at any given moment. But while “Steve’s Dick Jam” clocks in at an 30 abrupt seconds and boasts the least comprehensible sentiments this side of a Coke Bust single, its ripcord riff is red, red meat—and halfway through White Load downshift into a cocksure variation of that riff, just because they can. “Aisles” opens with 17 seconds of drum thrash before the rest of the band careens in for some no-fi Wire shenanigans; “Party” is like the Cliff’s Notes version of Nirvana’s Incesticide. Intros are all over World, and I don’t mean some dude belligerently bellowing an anarchist bumper-sticker slogan: “Nothing Is Funny” and “Public Suicide” gnash along on startlingly even keels before their accompanying vocals kick the bucking-bronco tunes into higher gears.

So White Load are hardcore, and at the same time they’re also kind of beyond it: hiding in plain sight musically, there without really existing. If you’re listening—not just hearing, mind you—this dissonance is their allure."

Interview with a Homo

Some fuckface wimp interviewed us after the record release show for celebrity gossip site Here is as much of it as he decided to paraphrase:

What does your name mean?

(Drummer) It started out as a laundry joke, cuz you separate your whites and your colors and it's the only segregation in the world that's still okay, but then it became a cum joke.

Tell me about the new album.

(Singer) It's a collection of the greatest punk songs you'll ever hear out of New England, second to GG Allen (It's ALLIN, asshole, who hired you?), and then the B-side is 11 of the 12 A-side songs after 6 hours of drinking, and I think they're actually better than the A-side.

What are you trying to say with the record?

(Singer) We're really dumb.

(Drummer) We don't like ourselves or each other. And we're trying to make everyone else feel bad.

How'd you feel about the show tonight?

(Singer) I chased a kid out of the show tonight which was fun.

Is that the kind of interaction you want at your shows?

(Singer)Yeah, if someone wants to throw a beer at me and I can chase them back to Olneyville, that's fine.

Instead of everyone getting up on the stage and playing down on people, the bands tonight chose to play from the floor. Talk about the equality thing you guys have going on here, if you even see it that way.

(Guitarist)I don't look at it that way.

(Singer) I want to say that I looked down on everyone who was in the crowd tonight.

(Guitarist) There's definitely some condescension on our part. It's not like an equality thing where we're saying that the band and the audience are the same, it's more that it's just weird being on a stage. It's awkward.

(Singer) I, the singer of White Load, do not play on a stage because I'm afraid that I will fall off the stage.

(Drummer) That would absolutely happen.

(Singer) Which would be hilaroius, but it would be humiliating, and I have low self-esteem and I don't want to do that for that sake.

You guys are a huge part of the Olneyville scene – tell us a little about that.

(Singer) We run the Olneyville scene. Have you ever heard of an Olneyville show that you wanted to go to – we were on it, it's cool. I'm not gonna lie, we run the Olneyville scene. Olneyville Sound System – bunch of pu#$ies. Lightning Bolt – bunch of pu#$ies. White Load – we run that s&^*. Next question.

(Guitarist) We don't actually run that s*&^, but the rest of that is true.

Anything you want to leave off with?

(Guitarist) We're doing another album named Mick and David.

(Singer) It's all about how Mick Jagger and David Bowie f*&#ed each other.

(Singer) If you've ever heard the two gayest people in the world singing a song together, that's the White Load LP. End of interview.

He also asked us about the band Hoax, who opened for us, but I guess he didn't like our answers. Drummer said they were good, Singer said they were better than us, I said their mosh style was nice if you played football in high school.
