Meet Pamela Torres
Emeril Lagasse always believed that pork fat rules, and the band I'm about to talk about totally agrees with a passion! Just recently I travelled to California and got down and dirty with a hardcore, mud wrestling punk band known as The Pig Farmers, who are out to serve to all square doubters a bacon-wrapped knuckle sandwich with a side of beer, broken teeth and a whole bunch of 2-minute thrash anthems. Sobriety really is a bitch!
MILT: There's me, Milton Bradshaw (vocals, disgustingness), Mike Foore (guitar), Leon Talhelm (bass), Jon Fumarol (guitar), and Nick Ures (drums)
PUNK GLOBE: What particular bands or artists influenced the Pig Farmers' sound?
MILT: D.R.I., Dead Kennedys, S.O.D., Slayer, Metallica, Dr. Know, Mentors, Misfits, Minor Threat, Motorhead, Casualties, Black Flag, Girls School, Mac Lads, Anthrax, Infidels (Carson City Nv) FEAR, Germs, Dayglo Abortions, Lewd, Capitol Punishment, Attitude Adjustment, Avengers, Toxic Reason, Johnny Cash, RKL
PUNK GLOBE: According to your myspace page, you originally came from Reno, Nevada, which seems to be an unlikely place for a punk band. Was there a big movement going on there?
MILT: There was a very large scene in the late 80's and early 90's, spawning some great bands including Jack Shit, Short Fuse, and 7 Seconds. The scene in Reno is not like most places, alot of the punkers are older and they get wild when there is a good show. Everybody knows your name, like that T.V. show Cheers. It weeds out the crap really quick, there will never be a "sum 41, blink 182, or Green Day" from Reno.
PUNK GLOBE: Tell me: in your opinion, how can bacon be good for the environment?
MILT: Heavy useage can kill fat business men and rich house wives! Tipper Gore might choke on it. Bacon is also one of the ultimate comfort foods, just try eating a big ass BLT and try not to smile. It keeps the vegans away. Depends on your definition of "environment".

MIKE: "If I weren't married I'd make a shitty boyfriend, where's the toilet, I have to poop!"
LEON: "Don't fuck with my sound, hands off the knobs!"
NICK: "Listen to Jakked Rabbits sk8 or die JAKS absolute music!"
MILT: "I wish you all poverty and toil and festering boils!"
