Blodwyn Pig

Blodwyn Pig were a British rock group ( * April 7, 1943 in Luton, Bedfordshire ) Mick Abrahams was established after it had left Jethro Tull in 1968. Abraham had indeed founded Jethro Tull, but Ian Anderson took over more and more in command, and the group Abraham was too commercial. Therefore, he decided to call his own project to life. Blodwyn Pig consisted of Abraham (guitar and vocals), Jack Lancaster (saxophone, flute, violin ), Andy Pyle (bass guitar) and Ron Berg ( drums). Their musical style encompassed blues, rock and jazz.

The band recorded two albums that reached the British top ten. The first was called " Ahead Rings Out" and is considered the best album of the band. Blodwyn Pig was known by the appearance at the Isle of Wight Festival 1969, along with Led Zeppelin, The Who, Procol Harum, BB King, Miles Davis, Janis Joplin, Pink Floyd and Joe Cocker. They toured twice successfully by the United States. On May 25, 1970, she appeared in the German TV show Beat -Club in Bremen, which was then sent on May 30. In addition, they also had many television appearances in her native Britain and in the United States.

They separated in 1970, came sporadically always briefly together and are active again since 1988, each in a different occupation. Andy Pyle from the main cast returned by Gary Moore and Wishbone Ash back temporarily. Today, the band consists of Mick Abrahams, Mike Summerland is (bass guitar), Dave Lennox ( keyboards) and Graham Walker (drums). They were supported again by Ian Anderson, finally it was no hostility, but artistic differences that had led Jethro Tull for separation.
