Rough mix of new Pigbag track available on SoundCloud

Ollie Moore has posted a rough mix of a new Pigbag track on SoundCloud, recorded in February 2010.

The track is called “Smooth Break” and you can listen to it here.

Pigbag on MTV, December 1982

Brian Nevill has posted another Pigbag video to YouTube.
This time it’s the band miming to “Listen Listen Little Man” from their second album, “Lend An Ear” on MTV in December 1982.

The band members in the clip are:
Oscar Verden (keys), Ollie Moore (baritone), Chris Lee (trumpet), Simon Underwood (violin), James Johnstone (bass), Brian Nevill (drums) & Angela Jaeger (playing congas in this film).

Once again, many thanks to Brian and his archive for providing this blast from the past.

Happy New Year to all Pigbag band members and fans out there!

Two live Pigbag videos added to YouTube

Brian Nevill has been busy again, adding two more videos of Pigbag playing live on German TV to his YouTube channel.

First up is a clip from September 1982 of the band playing “Weak At The Knees” from their (at that point, unreleased) second album “Lend an Ear”.

Next up is a clip from “Bio’s Bahnhof” of the band playing “Papa’s..” live. Filmed in Cologne on October 25th 1982.

Great stuff and thanks again to Brian for sourcing those.

Another Pigbag video – “The Big Bean”

The video for Pigbag’s fourth single, “The Big Bean”, has been uploaded to YouTube by former band-member Brian Nevill.

Another one that didn’t see much screen time at the time of release.

Many thanks to Brian for digging these out!

Pigbag’s “Getting Up” video on YouTube

Brian Nevill has uploaded Pigbag’s video for their third single, “Getting Up”, to YouTube.
I’d never seen it before, it may never have been shown on TV at all.

Directed by Mick Calvert. Assistant director and master of ceremonies Julian Firth. Shot over 20th/21st February 1982 in Cheltenham.

Brian says he’ll be uploading the video for “The Big Bean” next, another that I’ve not seen.
