Big Pig - You Lucky People
Following on the 1987 chart success of their first album Bonk, Big Pig released their second album, You Lucky People in 1990. This CD has long been out of distribution.
Shortly after the release of this album in 1990, Big Pig relocated to London and not long after that disbanded.
They were noted for their predominant use of drums and vocals, and an absence of guitars, making them a quite unique sounding band at the time.
Big Pig were a seven-piece Australian pop/rock band, based in Melbourne, that existed from 1985 until 1991. They were one of the pioneers of Australian "Industrial Rock".
The band formed in London in 1985. the original main members were Australian drummer Oleh Witer with singer Nick Disbray. The pair returned to Melbourne later that year and recruited the new line-up that would make the hit records.
They settled on the line-up consisting of....
Nick Disbray (lead vocals, percussion)
Sherine Abeyratne (from the band I'm Talking, featuring Kate Ceberano)(lead vocals, percussion)
Oleh Witer (vocals, drums)
Tony Antoniades (vocals, harmonica)
Tim Rosewarne (vocals, keyboard)
Adrian Scaglione (drums)
