Pigbag - Papa's Got A Brand New Pigbag


On this date in 1981, Pigbag released their debut single, "Papa's Got A Brand New Pigbag". It was backed by "The Backside". Both songs were instrumentals. Neither song appeared on an album but the A side was added as a bonus track when their debut album, Dr. Heckle & Mr. Jive , was re-released on CD. The single hit the #2 spot on the U.K. indie singles chart. The Birmingham, England post-punk band disbanded in 1983 after five singles and three albums.
