Pigmy Love Circus
|Pigmy Love Circus|
|Origin||Los Angeles, United States|
|Associated acts||Tool, 57 Crown, Big Ugly|
|Past members||Rand "Pig" Walters
Pigmy Love Circus originally consisted of Shepherd Stevenson on bass, Mike Savage on vocals, Anthony Martinez (of Black Flag) on drums, with Rand "Pig" Walters and Peter Fletcher on guitars. Danny Carey joined in 1992, but his tenure was cut short by his joining the progressive metal band Tool.
By 1995, Pigmy Love Circus disbanded. What was left of the band went their separate ways. Savage went on to form 57 Crown and Big Ugly, both being formidable bands in Hollywood. Stevenson focused on becoming a film director. Fletcher moved to Denver. Rand "Pig" Walters disappeared.
In 1999, Fletcher returned to Los Angeles and the flame was rekindled when Carey demanded a reunion.
Known for lively, confrontational concerts the band's music and primal energy incite fans to jump on stage (encouraged by the band) and sing along on songs such as "Dagwood Killed Blondie" and "Mad House Clown". The band achieved iconic status in the Los Angeles underground music scene.
The band is currently working on material for their next release.
