Commando M Pigg-st,LP,1981,Sweden

Commando M Pigg were a female fronted act that formed in 1980, dropped the "M Pigg" around '86 and eventually released a grand total of seven albums before finally calling it a day in 1990.
Musically,influences of early Siouxsie and the Banshees, Raincoats and Lilliput are obvious. Sometimes reminds me the first Björk attempts with Tappi Tíkarrass or Kukl,while jazzish elements are not absent (especially in the use of saxes).

great band! MNW recently put out a decent "best-of" type disc that's been getting consistent airplay around my house.
