With more than six years fighting from the underworld of music, SICK PORKY is now officially presenting the launch of its first album "Ancestral". Edited by the label ZONDA RECORDS, this album compiles part of the work of these first years of career. The large number of live presentations, in some of which they shared stage with well-known Argentine bands such as PEZ, LOS NATAS, CARAJO and SATAN DEALERS, has given the band the deserved respect in Buenos Aires’ music arena. The band’s fans continue to multiplicate, most of them curiously attracted by the talk of town succumb to the “pork sound”.Read More
The two EPs edited during 2001-2003 a lot had to do with the musical growth of the band. This material had little (though important) diffusion in some of the most prestigious local media such as FM Rock & Pop and several Internet/podcasting radio stations heard worldwide (Netherlands, United Kingdom, United States, and several other countries). The first EP was produced by the tandem Gaby Ruiz Díaz/ Macabre from CATUPECU MACHU, whereas the production of the second EP was done by Agustín Rocino (CUENTOS BORGEANOS), who also was chosen as producer of "Ancestral".
Another determining factor for the course of the band were the several participations in compilations of international reach like "Listen without distraction", an Argentinean tribute to the stoner cult band KYUSS and "Loco Gringos Have a Party: Southamerican stoner rock" in which they performed altogether with Natas and other bands such as BUFFALO (Argentina), YAHAIRA (Chile) and REINO ERMITAÑO (Perú).
