Papa's Got A Brand New Pigbag

Bildergebnis für pigbag

Inspired by yesterday's post I grabbed deeper in my old records for some music I didn't listen to for ages and found a 12-inch and an album by Pigbag. Formed by Simon Underwood when he left post-punk legend The Pop Group in 1980. If The Pop Group was named as a crossover band Pigbag absorbed more styles and genres into their unique sound. It was courageous by them as a band that had heavy influences by punk to include funk and horns to their sound. But it worked very well and Papa's Got A Brand New Pigbag became a trademark to their sound. Apparently they hit with their percussive tribal power the nerve of the time and the song reached high positions in the charts. Also at my place many of the jazz addicted people could agree to them and this song was played by many DJ's in the early 80's. Probably one of the first independent dance track and still heard in clubs today.

They also appeared on Top of the Pops in 1982:

The song is based on a song James Brown recorded in the early 60's and also worth to listen after a long time.
