Pitchfork said " Fook is a singular document of Pigfaces success as a pressure valve for pop-minded, DIY-raised experimenters. Featuring a number of male and female vocalists, Pigface's FOOK somehow seamlessly moves from British pagan folk through frenetic electro hardcore and into the mid-tempo snaking groove chants common to industrial"

This double vinyl remastered re-issue comes complete with a reproduction of an advance reference cassette with a date of March 18 1992 which predates the official release by a full 6 months (October 19, 1992)
It contains a preliminary version of the album before the eventual final track list and versions were selected for the consumer release. The songs that are different versions are:
Hips Tits Lips Power, Go, I’m Still Alive, Satellite , Auto Hag (less distortion/better mix), Alle Ist Mine.
In addition Ten Ground and Down (titled “Five” on this tape) has a slightly longer ending and “Cutting Face” never made it on the final album at all. “Seven Words” was titled ‘Speed Metal’ on this tape.
Mike Vinikour (who unearthed this tape) describes it:
“I prefer a couple versions on this tape more but ultimately the commercial Fook release was better. This tape is such a cool time capsule and really showed the diversity of Pigface and what the future could and did offer.”
