Goodbye Pigbag – Hello “Brand New Pigbag” (and gigs)!
After several months of hibernation, a few posts have appeared on the Pigbag Facebook page.
First up, Ollie Moore, one of the two members of the original Pigbag featured in the reformed band, has decided to concentrate on other musical ventures and has left the band, entirely amicably.
Chris Lee will be continuing with the band which will now be known as “Brand New Pigbag“.
The “new” band will be playing their first gig at Cottons in Islington, London on Friday 13th June. Starts at 7:30 so get there early or book in advance.
