This one hit wonder song title is a play on the James Brown song “Papa’s Got a Brand New Bag”.
It was written out a jam that a collection of Post Punk British musicians were doing. The band adopted the name Pigbag, in reference to art student turned clarinet player Chris Hamlin’s scruffy cloth bag bearing a screen-printed warthog.
If you grew up watching “The New Music” in Toronot you might remember it as the theme music for THE NEW MUSIC on City TV.
