Pig State Recon
From Dave Provost:
Guitarist Aaron Price and I were playing with the Hollywood Hillbillies. When Fur Dixon left the Hillbillies to join the Cramps, we drafted the Hillbilly’s drummer Steve Bidrowski, and changed the band’s name to the Denver Mexicans. Steve had previously been a member of Sire Records’ seminal psychobilly band The Unknowns, and the trio was now the Soundcheck’s house band. The Denver Mexicans’ name was based on characters from Jack Kerouac’s book On the Road.
