Furious Pig

Furious Pig has been played on NTS in shows including Mark Leckey, featured first on 14 November 2017. Songs played include The King Mother.

Furious Pig were a group that formed in the small town of Totnes in South Devon, England. Influences include: Frank Zappa, Captain Beefheart, The Beatles, Ethiopian Polyphonic chants, The Doors, Stravinsky and Edgar Varese etc. In 1979 they moved to London a year after reaching the final of the National 'Melody Maker' Rock/Folk Contest.
