Piggiebag and how's the Weather like on Mars?
Not to many words today, only music. Weather Report is known as being one of the leading fusion bands of the 70’s. Maybe less known is that they were also really funky. I will give more proof of that later on.

Someone corrected me on this. Mysterious traveller is not with Jaco Pastorius but with Alphonso Johnson on Bass. Thanx Jacek.
After the split up of the famous no wave band The Pop Group, a couple of members formed Pigbag. Their best known song and only hit single, I guess, was a great dance track which refers to James Brown’s milestone Papa’s got a brand new bag. I give you an alternative 12” version which I like better than the original 7”.
009 Pigbag - Papa's Got A Brand New Pigbag 12” (mix) 1982
There’s also a nice fansite of Pigbag with some music of another split up band called Instinct.
