1985 – 1991 (6 years)
Formed in Australia in the late 80s, Big Pig consisted of several vocalists, percussionists, keyboard players and at least one harmonica player but used no guitars. They played a fun, danceable style that emphasized syncopated rhythms and vocal harmony with an unexpected socially conscious lyrical bent. Their only U.S. 'hit', Breakaway, appeared on "Bonk", as well as on the Bill & Ted Soundtrack.
The group's second album "You Lucky People" was released in Australia. Not as dark as the first album, the second featured a lighter, more dance-oriented pop sound.
The group disbanded after the two releases.
