Austin based artist Curse Mackey is best known as lead singer of industrial supergroup PIGFACE and notorious Texas tribal-industrial legends EVIL MOTHERS and as a member of My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult. Mackey has now launched a solo electronic industrial project that includes new material and revamps of classic Pigface and Evil Mothers songs (including Spider Sex and Car Wrecks.) His sound is a future-forward homage to the experimental side of industrial music, with doom-fueled drones, sinister synth pulsations and dirty-minded beats layered upon hypnotic noise manipulations, scream of conscious lyrical prose and near trance-inducing improvisations that evoke the ghosts of Throbbing Gristle, early Skinny Puppy, Lustmord, Coil, and the iconic projects Mackey has been a part of. PIGFACE has also featured such luminaries as Ogre of Skinny Puppy, Martin Atkins of Ministry/Killing Joke, En Esch of KMFDM, Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails, Genesis P-Orridge of Psychic TV and Danny Carey of Tool, just to name a few.)
Mackey is also the co-founder/COO of Mosaic Sound Collective in Austin, TX.
