Longpig - Down To The Bone 12"


First release of this not-so-known goth band. Don't know why they are labelled as a goth band 'cos you can't compare Longpig to any other band from that time. The music isn't very uptempo and quite minimal. The vocals are also more like spoken word.
Longpig went on to release an album 'Of Love And Addiction' on Anagram and a 12" 'Why Do People Find Each Other Strange', a track from the album with on the other side the same 2 songs as on this 12" B-side, probably re-recorded.

One of the ex-members left a comment on one of the previous posts but I can't remember which one. I hope to get more info from him soon on this one.

Down To The Bone 12" (self-released-198?)

HI!!

I LIKE SO MUCH THIS RELEASE,THNX A LOT TO UP-LOAD.

DO YOU HAVE THE OTHER RELEASE LIKE A 12'', CALLED:Why Do People Find Each Other Strange? (12")...

THE FIRST SONG IS THE ONLY NEW SONG BECAUSE THE OTHER 2 SONGS ARE THE SAME B SIDES.

REGARDS!!

Great post ... no I agree that they aren't per se a goth band but I guess they had a different approach that was nonetheless artistic and had sufficient content to box them like that, considering the time. Strange little band but very pleasant.
