Longpigs were swept up in the whole Britpop movement, yet they were somehow always more intelligent, more classy than their counterparts.
The Sheffield band's debut album, ‘The Sun Is Often Out’, remains a modern classic creation some 17 years on from its original release. Disappointingly, they only produced one more album.
This wonderful compilation gathers most of what Longpigs released, including all bar one track from that classic debut. The singles 'Lost Myself', 'She Said' and 'On And On' (video below) naturally make the cut.
It's a lush, beautiful, enchanting and passionately delivered set of songs, leaving us in further wonder as to why we were denied more.
