“Sunny Day,” by Pigbag

pigbag.jpgPigbag is an absurdly funky post-punk ensemble. I ripped this track (the version from the Stiff US 12″) recently for a mix I listened to while training for the 2008 Buffalo Marathon (which I ran last week and got a PR of 3:44!). It’s got all the Pigbag trappings, frenetic funky beat, horn blasts, and countless changes. Theses guys are tight.

I was prompted to post this track this yesterday when I saw that the always fantastic Fantod Under Glass has made available a live Pigbag LP that I didn’t even know existed. Head on over and check it out.

More on Pigbag here. This band has been getting ripped off for years, but somehow still sounds incredibly fresh.

Pigbag, “Sunny Day,” from the 12″ single on Stiff Records (1981)
