Joining a Facebook group is of course the world’s least effective form of political action. However, this is a cause Pig With The Face Of A Boy are particularly passionate about, and we believe Transport for London should implement the measure without delay.

More will appear soon.
The 'google calendar' box feels a tad cramped and messy. Does anyone know an easy and effective way to make it less ugly?

To check the system worked, I tested it out, which rather irritatingly meant I had to fork out £7 for one of my own CDs. Much to my surprise, it arrived immediately.

Pig With The Face Of A Boy will be performing at a town near you, if you happen to live near to Gravesend, which is a town in Kent.
We'll be playing at 7:30(ish) on Sunday 13th September as part of the Red Roar Festival.
We're also due to be playing as part of the World's Smallest Festival on Sunday 27th September. This is obviously top secret. If word gets out it will no longer be the World's Smallest Festival, so the endeavour will be pointless.
If you like us and think we should play at your venue or festival, email firstname.lastname@example.org, and we'll see if we can make it happen.
(The photo is from a nativity play I was once in. It's not from the show. There are no puppet sheep in our show. There is no need to be afraid.)

"These boys are in danger of making 'anti-folk' the new rock'n'roll."
We are toying with the idea of pasting "THE NEW ROCK'N'ROLL!" on our posters, just to see what sort of people turn up.

From The Skinny:
Come in off the crowded streets and escape the unending raucous cries of flyer-bearing promoters and overheated children – the Free Edinburgh Fringe Festival brings you sweet and twisted comedy tunes from Pig with the Face of a Boy and twelve perfect little songs cleverly composed with both well-honed comic timing and fine musicianship.
Their lyrics always begin in the world of the sane but then take a surprising leap down dark and surreal comic alleyways, where love-struck shepherds mingle with the half naked, urine-drinking Howard Hughes. With a jingly set of instruments, including a 12 string ukulele, their harmonies put you in mind of the early Divine Comedy, as they blend the melodies of music hall with intelligent acoustic pop tunes. A better hour of shiny comic songs may be hard to find, and certainly not for free.

We’ll be singing songs and talking in between. More details soon.

The annual Lechon festival in the Philippines.
They'll cook the pig whole, on charcoal, and apparently it's delicious. Occasionally the pigs are made to wear fancy dress, which people find humorous.
Are these pigs about to kiss each other tenderly on the lips? No, of course not. They're dead.
