Dabang Band: Pig Over Seoul (2002)

Pig Over Seoul album cover image

This is Dabang Band’s first album, recorded and produced in 2002 (and released in the fall of 2002) at the (oddly named) Seoul Studio in… Jeonju City, South Korea. (Just six months after the band’s then-current personnel had come together.)

This album is no longer available in traditional media… apparently the CDs all sold out, so it’s available here as a free download. Check out the sampler below and download if you like:
