From 1986 and electro skiffle from the Aussie band Big Pig. Some inspired harmonica playing from Tony Antoniades and some impassioned vocals from Sherine. This mostly Stomp-esque percussion group (they had 3 drummers and no guitarists!) were deliberately styled like an industrial band but sound like across between early Adam And The Ants meets the Eurythmics!
Produced by Nick Launey on the UK 12″ we get the added big synthpop of “Boy Wonder” with some baby samples!

Mike has also included the limited edition Aussie Gatefold 12″ of remixes by Ivan Ivan. Two mixes of the bluesy swingbeat “Money God” the Dance mix sounding like it would not be to out place on Depeche Mode’s album “Construction Time Album.” Other extra track is “Devil’s Song” a sinister Doo-wop.
