Pigpile is a live recording from July 24, 1987 during the post-hardcore band Big Black's final European tour, released originally as a VHS tape (it was their second video release, following the 'Live' tape on Atavistic Records.) and later issued as an audio-only CD. The recordings were made at the Hammersmith Clarendon concert hall, London. A 5" transparent thick vinyl record was included away free with all copies of the VHS tape and some copies of the soundtrack album, featuring a cover version of the Mary Jane Girls song "In My House".
