Incredible Hog –Lame


Incredible Hog –Lame/Tadpole –Dart ART 2026 (1973 UK)

Funny, I always passed by looking into Incredible Hog. Perhaps this was due to originally mixing them up with the god-awful Blodwyn Pig in terms of name and LP cover art. However Lame distances itself from any Prog Porky leanings with this fine Glam/Hard Rock crossover with finger snapping in lieu of handclaps, but featuring some great HEYs during the stomping parts which also feature some pure Eddie Phillips (Creation) guitar moves. Tadpole is also worth hearing, but is more intricate and hasn’t got the upfront dumbness of Lame. More Porky Prime Cuts to be discovered include much of the Hogback n’ Pig output on CBS.

Robin, thank you so much for all the great tunes you share. Much of it never got airplay over here in the US (in Texas anyway), so it's all new to me. Cheers. Scott from Austin.

Love it! Dumb is yum-yum! Plus a George Peckham reference -- run off groovin'. Yer pal forever from the sunny San Jose hills.

I saw them play live twice last year, they've still got it. They have been re-issued by the Rise Above label. Thanks for this AMAZING blog by the way. You may have heard of mine, doing a similar thing: http://aftersabbath.blogspot.com

Blodwyn Pig is great. One of the best prog rock groups ever and a vast improvement on Jethro Tull.

I personally have trouble having the words "best" and "prog" next to each other. Then again I only had to live through that once in my life...
