Interviews with Talking Heads and Beach Boy Dennis Wilson, a report on the Toronto “Outrage” concert, “Marc Bolan Is Dead” obituary, “Pig Punk Part Two” (The Dishes, Loved Ones, Concordes, Headache, Diodes), the first “Pigossip” column, “More True Kink Konfessions” (from the proposed Pig Paper # 4), plus record reviews of the Alan Parsons Project, Viletones, Sex Pistols, Rattles, Dishes, 24 Original Happening Hits, Nick Lowe, and the New Legion Rock Spectacular.
First, though, is a “pigsclusive” photo sent to me by Gary Pig Gold to include in this issue. In this picture is Gary Pig Gold along with Dennis Wilson from the Beach Boys. This was taken during the interview for The Pig Paper, Issue No. 06, on the afternoon of August 29, 1977, after the Canadian release party for his “Pacific Ocean Blue” album, held at Round Records in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Note copy of The Pig Paper, Issue No. 05, in Dennis’ hand (issue was colorized to the original color).
Photo credit goes to John Pinto.
Also in this issue, Cindy Pig gives her review on Alan Parsons Project “I Robot” (page 21), which she specifically notes that she loves the album cover as John Cleese from the Sex Pistols is in the bottom right corner. I never realized this, even though I had this cassette and played it until it eventually was eaten by my cassette player (I had just recently switched from 8-track to cassette). I have included a photo of the album cover at the very end of this post.

Lastly, The Pig Paper frequently talk about a punk rock band out of Canada called “The Viletones.” Here is one of their original underground concerts from 1977 performing at the Colonial Underground. Line-up includes: Chris Hate, Freddy Pompeii, Motor Mike, and Steven Leckie as “Nazi Dog”.
