Sunday, time for a classic.
DEATH IN JUNE are a neofolk group led by English folk musician Douglas Pearce, better known as Douglas P. The band was originally formed in Britain in 1981 as a trio, but after the other members left in 1984 and 1985 to work on other projects, the group became the work of Douglas P. and various collaborators. Douglas P. now lives in Australia.
Over the band's three decades of existence, they have made numerous shifts in style and presentation, resulting in an overall shift from initial post-punk and Industrial Records influence to a more acoustic and folk music-oriented approach. Douglas P.'s influence was instrumental in sparking neofolk, of which his music has subsequently become a part.
"All Pigs Must Die" is an album by DEATH IN JUNE, released in 2001. The first half of the album bears the typical later DEATH IN JUNE neofolk sound, whereas the second half of the album has a much more chaotic, experimental sound to it. On the album Pearce was assisted by Andreas Ritter of the neofolk group FORSETI who played accordion on a few tracks on the first half of the LP. This marked a return to the previous folk sound of DEATH IN JUNE.
DEATH IN JUNE have also appeared live with FORSETI and Pearce appeared on Forseti's Windzeit LP.
