THE PIGS 'YOUTHANASIA - ORIGINAL 1977 Punk Rock' LP
The Pigs were a Bristol-based Punk Rock band formed in 1977.
In August that year they recorded an EP, “Youthanasia”, for the
independent label New Bristol Records. They were featured on bills with
bands like Siouxsie and the Banshees and their high-energy live shows
generated positive reviews on magazines such as Melody Maker.
Unfortunately, the chance to open for the Sex Pistols went up in smoke
when the venue mysteriously burned down the night before the gig…
Nevertheless, the EP enabled the Pigs to play at famous venues like
Marquee and Roxy Club, often supporting The Cortinas. However,
disillusionment set in at the increasingly mainstream direction of the
punk movement: early in 1978, they split up.
Now, after so many years, you can finally listen to their great sound
with these 11 killer tracks, including all four songs from the EP
Youthanasia and seven other tracks from the same session.
