Recent Matador signees Fucked Up have been making genre-breaking, experimental hardcore for years, but the YEAR OF THE PIG single finds them thinking miles outside of the box. Augmented by various edits of the title song and B-sides of the original issues, the EP's centerpiece is undoubtedly the mammoth, 18-minute "Year of the Pig" itself. Employing the "pig" as a metaphor for the treatment of Canadian sex workers, the band meditates on a quiet, throbbing loop of bass, guitar, organ, and female vocals before vocalist Pink Eyes enters with his ragged bellow, and the guitars kick in.
