The Pigs - Bristol Punk

Their one single was issued on their own label with some help from Miles Copeland, and was the second punk single to come out of Bristol. Peel played it a few times, but despite regular gigging - including a headlining show at the Roxy in January 1978 and a few supporting local heroes The Cortinas - the group did not really take off, and split in March '78. They had only existed for 12 months,

The single was taken from a session at Sound Conception Studio in August 1977, where they recorded their entire eleven-song set, The remaining songs remained unissued until Bristol Archive Records released 1977 many years later.
