PIGBAG BEAT IT
Seems like it’s the season for splits —
They had an instrumental hit with ‘Papa’s Got A Brand New Pigbag’, and always enjoyed a strong live following. But they’ve found it hard to match the standard of their earlier work.
Simon Underwood, bassist, explained the break up.
“It’s about the most positive thing we’ve done all year,” he admitted. “It’s no big deal, it’s just that we wanted to work with lots of different peple —
“When Pigbag started it was quite a loose thing —
“It was good ‘Papa’ being a hit but I don’t think we followed it up or used it as we could have.”
Simon is now working with his wife Angela, who recently joined Pigbag as singer, and guitarist James. He says they could be “quite commercial.”
Y Records release the final Pigbag LP, a mainly live set called ‘Pigbag’, on June 24, priced £2.99.
