Pigstock 2011 - Triggerman
Main Stage, Saturday, 28th May 2:50pm
Describe in a tweet: Trigger happy strokers lay down the law.
What happened?: The sugar filled teenie bopper audience that filled the grass for Key of Atlas seems to have been gobbled up and digested by the burly congregation down the front waiting for Triggerman. The devil horns are being thrown about like confetti at a wedding, albeit a very saudit wedding. The Derry based beast they call Triggerman are on fine form, their bluesy hard rock is angry and viceral. It's very much trucker rock designed for those who enjoy the odd tipple of ale, so much so they have a song dedicated to the art ofembibing called 'Shebeen'. ATL sticks with their coke and hog burger but nods along approvingly.
Silk Purse: Their track 'Praise to the River Gods'. It's scarey but a good type of scarey.
Sow's Ear: They, like Burnt reynolds, suffered a bit from the transient crowd.
Pigstock Rating: 7/10
