Pigbros - 12"s
Pigbros was an indie band from Birmingham that was close with The Membranes. Both bands collaborated on the 'Now Is The Time To Remove Your Mask' 12".
First time I heard 'Hedonist Hat' I was quite impressed. This song can be found on the 'The Blubberhouses' 12", their best release. 'Cheap Life' continues in the same tradition although it sounds more polished. A few years ago I could obtain the 'Just Call Me God' 12". But I must admit that I was a little disappointed as it sounds quite poppy. Just listen for yourself. Ant has never heard it before so here you go.
Pigbros released a full length 'From Now On This Is Will Be Your Ideal Life' on Cake Records. This small label was run by Fuzz Townsend and Peter Byrchmore who was a member of The Nightingales from 1983 to 1986. Other bands on the label are Capitols, Davidsons and Atom Spies. Never heard these. Would like to know if they're interesting.
