Hailing from Sheffield, UK, the Longpigs earned early hits with songs On and On and Far culled from their debut album The Sun is Often Out. A striking, entertaining, and hip offering, it almost wasn't released. In fact, had U2 not stepped up to the plate and signed the foursome to Mother Records none of their meteoric rise (and subsequent fall) would have ever occurred. The Longpigs were voiced by Crispin Hunt and rounded out by guitarist Richard Hawley, bassist Simon Stafford, and drummer Dee Boyle. The group initially signed with Elektra Records. Just before they released their first single, two major crises struck the band. Lead singer Hunt was seriously injured in a car accident resulting in his being in a coma for three days. Shortly after, the UK arm of the record label closed leaving the Longpigs' future in doubt. In April 1996 the band released their debut album The Sun Is Often Out, which was declared one of 1996's 50 best albums by both Q Magazine and Melody Maker. On the heels of their newfound success, the band then repackaged and re-released "She Said" which also reached the UK Top 20 in June 1996. This album is a special find, one required of any collection claiming to include great Brit-pop or even indie/alt-rock.
