The Escaped Fetal Pigs - "The Cult Of Pogo And Porky Pine (Take 1)"

This is the first take of "The Cult Of Pogo And Porky Pine" from the local television variety show that The Escaped Fetal Pigs played in 1990 or thereabouts.  I don't recall why we did two takes of the song.  This might have been a rehearsal take for setting sound levels or something.  Then again, this version is pretty shaggy, so we might have just decided to redo it.  I love how the host, Tom Martin or something was his name, is mad that some people think his variety show lacks variety and he complains about that as he introduces us.  Considering he stormed out of the taping before we finished playing and this never aired that I know of, those people were probably right.  The song is about a cult that worships Walt Kelly's comic strip and was always fun to play live because a lot of people would pogo to it.  I don't remember who made the "Pig Out With The Escaped Fetal Pigs" banner behind us, but it's genius.
