Pigface is an industrial rock supergroup formed in 1990 by Martin Atkins and Bill Rieflin.
Pigface was formed from Ministry's The Mind Is A Terrible Thing To Taste tour, from which the In Case You Didn't Feel Like Showing Up live album came. For the tour, Alain Jourgensen brought Martin Atkins, Nivek Ogre, Chris Connelly. Also on the tour was regular Ministry drummer, at the time, William Rieflin. While Atkins enjoyed the dynamic of playing with a second drummer, he felt that the lineup was capable of doing much more than being, what he has frequently called, "a Ministry cover band." Once the tour was over, Atkins and Rieflin decided to continue working together and recruited several of their tourmates from the The Mind Is A Terrible Thing To Taste tour. Pigface was born with the intention of keeping a revolving-door style collaboration with many experimentally-minded musicians, many of whom, especially early on, had recorded for the influential industrial music record label Wax Trax.
