January 1992 sees the final single release from Peter Hook’s Revenge project featuring 2 tracks from “Gun World Porn” with the 12″ of “Little Pig” being the rarity, mixed by Dave Bianca.
Revenge were the trio of Hook, (vocals, synths and bass) David Hicks/ David Potts (guitars) and Chris Jones (keyboards)
Both tracks were produced with Michael Johnson and mixed by Keith Andrews. The ballad “State Of Shock” has New Order atmospherics. The “Liverpool Edit” works really well deep beats and a sub bass and a synth bass with some added guitar. The “Paralized Mix” has a deep house feel to it over the Hook croon, Goth House!
“Little Pig” is a bit of an Indie anthem stomper, quick and snarly with an injection of technology. The 12″ has added drum machines and pulses before it breaks in with the wall of guitars.
