Thick Pigeon

Thick Pigeon has been played over 10 times on NTS, first on 11 December 2013. Thick Pigeon's music has been featured on 18 episodes.

Thick Pigeon was essentially a vehicle for songwriter Stanton Miranda and arranger Carter Burwell. Based in New York, the duo recorded a brace of oblique, minimalist singles for Crepuscule in 1981-82 before moving sideways to Factory for their first album.

Recorded in Manchester in late 1983, Too Crazy Cowboys saw the duo initially joined by Steven Morris and Gillian Gilbert of New Order, as well as Gillian's sister Kim. In true Factory fashion the album was released a year late.
