Revolution Music Company

Sub Pop is thrilled to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Providence, RI noise-rock legends Six Finger Satellite's debut album, The Pigeon Is the Most Popular Bird with a new, fully remastered CD and double-LP reissue. Released in 1993, The Pigeon Is the Most Popular Bird is a landmark of noisy, distressing post-punk, drawing influence from Gang of Four, The Birthday Party, and Wire while adding a healthy dose of the band's own, unique sonic antagonism. Amongst the brittle rock tracks, it has dashes of ahead-of-their-time keyboard and studio experiments that became more prominent on the band's later albums, presaging LCD Soundsystem, DFA Records, and much of the early-2000s post-punk revival. Pitchfork rightly called The Pigeon Is the Most Popular Bird "one of the best noise-rock records of the 90s," writing that "the transitions from silly to searing highlight Six Finger Satellite's unpredictable and caustic approach... this was their most exhilaratingly bitter pill to swallow."
