Pig City: From the Saints to Savage Garden
From cult heroes the Saints and the Go-Betweens to national icons Powderfinger and international stars Savage Garden, Brisbane has produced more than its share of great bands. But behind the music lay a ghost city of malice and corruption.
Pressed under the thumb of the Bjelke-Petersen government and its toughest enforcers – the police – Brisbane’s musicians, radio announcers and political activists braved ignorance, harassment and often violence to be heard. Pig City maps the shifts in musical, political and cultural consciousness that have shaped the city’s history and identity. This is Brisbane’s story – the story of how a city finally grew up.
