Artist Review of Alvie & The Breakfast Pigs by Guest Writer Franck Martin

Alvie & The Breakfast Pigs from San Francisco, create a style of music that is definitively Rock ’n’ Roll, but with an added edge that sometimes loud sometimes fast, but always energetic. The band is composed of Alvie Adams on the Guitar and lead vocals, accompanied by the Breakfast Pigs, Matt Logan on the Lead Guitar and vocals, Phil Thorneycroft on Bass Guitar, and Jake Natkin on Drums.

You would expect to find this band in some late night clubs in San Francisco, but you can also find them in the lesser-known neighborhoods, and places you have to seek out. Their last album “Plastic Surgery” was recorded in the famous Hyde Street Studios, bunkered in the heart of the Tenderloin in San Francisco. A gem in the rough, a wrong turn made right. And, Kurt Cobain seems present when you listen to “Cool to be lame.

Stopped from touring, during the great COVID-19, they got together virtually and re-released the single “Double Crossed,” from their debut 2014 album “Snake Headed Faceless Cowboy.” You can watch this awesome music video on their Youtube channel. Needless to say, they have not remained idle during this time, and some new project is coming out very soon.
