Book Details

An Australian music cult classic, now with an introduction by Eamon Sandwith from The Chats. From cult heroes the Saints and the Go-Betweens to national icons Powderfinger and international stars Savage Garden, Brisbane has produced more than its share of great bands. But behind the music lay a ghost city of malice and corruption. Persecuted by the Bjelke-Petersen government and its toughest enforcers, the police, Brisbane’s musicians, radio announcers and political activists braved ignorance, harassment and often violence to be heard. Since its first publication in 2004, Pig City has become a much-loved cult classic, providing an enduring soundtrack and history lesson for a new generation of fans and musicians alike.
