Having played music together in the hillbilly mountains of Australia for many years, some say hundreds of years, The Pigs decided in 2004 to come from the remotest corners of the outback to form the band in Sydney.
Once the word got around that the family band had gone public with their brand of bluegrass, they were unstoppable and the fans came trotting in.
The Pigs’ personnel:
* T-Bone Pig – Lead vocals, nylon string acoustic guitar, mandolin
* Stretch Pig – Lead vocals, steel string acoustic guitar, harmonicas
* Cousin Burt (The Daytime Stripper) – Double bass, backing vocals
* Cousin Shamus – Stand-up drum kit
And, due to having such a large family, they are often joined by:
* Cousin Montz – Banjo
* Cousin Oink – Fiddle
Highlights of The Pigs’ 13 years on the Australian highways include performances at the Tamworth Country Music Festival, The Gympie Music Muster, Woodford Folk Festival, The Deni Ute Muster, Port Fairy Folk Festival, Broadbeach Country Music Festival, and Queenscliff Music Festival.
About this track...
The song tells of the journey to a shack in the mountains of Australia where they find their friend building a homespun electronic instrument with moonshine flowing and the synthesiser making sounds like an old jug band.
