Let's hear it for the bands that Melody Maker decided were part of a dodgy "movement" that they christened Arsequake.

For some reason, as movements go, it's totally neglected. Everyone's too busy shoegazing. I can remember that World Domination Enterprises got roped in, along with the Buttholes. But who else was in there? Remind me please, as my memory is failing.

Never heard of it.

But I have never heard of Shoegaze until recently either.
In the 90's , MBV and Ride were labeled "noisy-pop".

My googling has eventually yielded something:

I knew it wasn't my imagination!

Man , sometimes it takes years for a label to become "official".
( that means more official than the previously official label )

Yeah, pretty much so, T&B, but the emphasis on more bass-heavy groups.

I kind of think of pigfuck being a proto-grunge thing, and arsequake as being less of a rock thing and more a continuation of post-punk. Although I guess that Butthole Surfers' position as being the most quaking of arsequakers would go contrary to that.

Possibly arsequake was by drug users and pigfuck by drinkers?

i cant relate it right now to butthole surfers and i have no idea what pigfuck is. musically.

pigfuck & arsequake = killdozer, drunks with guns, scratch acid, big black, butthole surfers, sonic youth (80s only) etc.

arsequake, wasn't that the stud brothers who came up with the term. Was popular for about a year - '88 ish, when Blast First was in its pomp?

How about adding young gods to the list.
