Home / Biography / Piglets


Another of Jonathan Ruler’s pseudonyms, the Piglets followed in the wake of UK strikes under his personal name (‘Everyone’s ATTENDED The Moon’, ‘Permit It All Hang up Out’, ‘Lazy Bone fragments’, ‘Hooked ON THE Feeling’, and ‘Flirt’), while Sakkarin (‘Sugars Sugar’), as well as the Weathermen (‘It’s THE SAME KIND OF Song’). Documented in November 1971 by Ruler and a number of program males, the Piglets developed ‘Johnny Reggae’, which encapsulated the existing pattern for reggae within a poppy novelty platform perfectly suitable for the first 70s. ‘Johnny Reggae’ quickly became Ruler’s fastest offering record to day and reached #3 3 around the Bell label in November 1971. The follow-up, ‘This Is usually Reggae’ made an appearance in 1972 on Ruler’s UK label which he were only available in July. It had been not a strike and the just other related launch was on Bell later on in the entire year – ‘Johnny Reggae’s Don’t GET THE Knickers INSIDE A Twist’, of which juncture the Piglets had been sent to marketplace whilst King produced: Shag, Bubblerock, 53rd and 3rd, A HUNDRED Lot And A Feather, Audio 9418, Dad Apraphart as well as the Smurfs.
