THE PORK AESTHETIC HAS BEEN DEVELOPED FROM DECADES OF LIVING IN AN INCREASINGLY UPTIGHT SOCIETY. FOUNDERS SEAN & KATIE AABERG BOTH WERE BORN & RAISED IN OAKLAND & BERKELEY, CALIFORNIA IN 1976. THIS WAS ABOUT AS LOOSE AS THE USA WAS AT ANY TIME. IT WAS A TIME OF DENIM, LEATHER, HAIR, CHEAP WINE, WEED, QUAALUDES, MOTORCYCLES, LIVING IN BUSES, ROCK&ROLL, FUNK, SEX, BARBECUE, THE BICENTENNIAL, KISS, ALICE COOPER, THE DOOBIE BROTHERS, PARLIAMENT/FUNKADELIC, PINBALL ARCADES, SMOKING IN RESTAURANTS, SHORT SHORTS, ROLLER SKATES, NOT WEARING SEATBELTS, NO HELMET LAWS, NO AIDS & THE ECONOMY HADN'T COLLAPSED YET. THE 80S BROUGHT IN THE YUPPIE & THE DEMONIC CORPORATE DRIVE. WE FLED TO THE ARMORED PUNK & HEAVY METAL TO PROTECT OURSELVES FROM AN INCREASINGLY UPTIGHT SOCIETY. THE YUPPIE DISEASE EVENTUALLY PENETRATED EVERYTHING, MAKING PEOPLE LOSE SIGHT OF WHAT WAS RIGHT & WHAT WAS WRONG. VIDEO GAMES WERE REMOVED FROM CORNER STORES. SMOKING BECAME ILLEGAL. PEOPLE FREAKED OUT ABOUT SEAT BELTS. THE HAIR GOT SHORTER & SHORTER. THE CLOTHES MORE & MORE OFFICE CASUAL. EVERYTHING REFLECTED THE LOST SOUL OF AMERICA & ON TOP OF THAT, THE PEOPLE WHO WEREN'T USED TO WHAT REAL LIVING WAS WERE FREAKED OUT BY IT. THEY HAD GOTTEN SO SQUARE THAT THEY FORGOT WHAT BEING A HUMAN WAS LIKE. I CAN'T HELP BUT THINK THAT THIS SQUARING OR ROBOTIFICATION OF AMERICA WAS COMPLETELY INTENTIONAL. BUT HERE WE ARE, FUCKING THE SOUL BACK INTO AMERICA & WE'RE NOT GOING TO STOP.

ABOUT OUR USE OF SWASTIKAS & NAZI IMAGERY.

PORK USES THE STANDARD LEXICON OF ROCK&ROLL, LOWLIFE, REBEL IMAGERY WHICH IS COMMON TO BIKERS, STREET GANGS, HOT-RODDERS, SURFERS, ROCKERS, HIPPIES, SKATERS, METAL HEADS, PUNKS & STONERS. THIS INCLUDES SKULLS, DRUGS. WILD ANIMALS, MONSTERS, MARGINALIZED SEX ACTS, GALLOWS HUMOR, WEAPONS, THE OCCULT, LEGIONS OF HELL & NAZI IMAGERY. WE BELIEVE THAT LEAVING OUT THE SWASTIKAS & NAZI STUFF BECAUSE PEOPLE ARE UPSET BY IT IS WEAK-ASSED & TAKES THE BITE OUT OF OUR CULTURE. PORK IS BY ITS VERY NATURE A LIVE & LET LIVE COMPANY, DOES NOT HARBOR ANY ILL-WILL TO ANYONE EXCEPT THE CLOSEST TOTALITARIANS WHO KEEP TRYING TO STOP US FROM DOING WHAT WE DO BECAUSE WE UPSET THEM. 

THE SWASTIKA ITSELF HAS PROVEN ITSELF TO BE VERY USEFUL IN OUTING CLOSET TOTALITARIANS WHO DROOL AT THE OPPORTUNITY TO CENSOR & REPRESS THE WILD-ASSED PRODUCTS OF PORK. WE ALSO DO THIS IN HONOR OF FALLEN PORK BROTHER & THE "FIFTH RAMONE" ARTURO VEGA. ARTURO IS FAMOUS FOR DESIGNING MANY OF THE RAMONES' ELEMENTS INCLUDING THEIR EAGLE LOGO. ARTURO PAINTED DAY-GLO SWASTIKAS & CONSIDERED THE PAINTINGS "CLOSET NAZI DETECTORS", EXPOSING THOSE WHO MOST LOUDLY OBJECTED AS REPRESSING THEIR OWN AUTHORITARIAN TENDENCIES. WE HAVE FOUND THIS AS WELL, AS NO ONE HAS A REASON FOR US TO STOP USING THE SWASTIKA EXCEPT FOR "IT WILL UPSET PEOPLE" & "YOU KNOW BETTER".

AGAIN, WE HARBOR NO ILL WILL TOWARDS ANYONE EXCEPT THOSE THAT TRY TO REPRESS OUR FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION.
