""Peggy Porn", en av årets tøffeste og mest kontroversielle låter kommer midtveis i settet, og denne er jo bare helt utrolig fengende og deilig, og burde absolutt fått mer spilletid på landets radiostasjoner - til tross for sin omstridte tekst. "
"på en svært så tilsikker måte har de klart å skape sitt eget musikalske varemerke. Greit med stil og genre, men dette bandet utmerket seg vel så mye gjennom sine bunnsolide melodier. "
"En narsistisk, lærhomsevrikende, selvopptatt og med et vidunderlig oppheva refreng, som er så bowie'sk at du lurer nesten på hvilken eller hvilke Bowielåter som skuler seg bak korsettet og stiletthælene"
"(...) suget, draget og løftet i refrenget var om mulig enda mer uimotståelig forførerisk denne gangen og dynamikken enda mer forsterka. Ahh! "
"Gi Piggyback en større scene!"
"Det paradoksale er at jo mer avskyelig og kvalmende teksten utarter seg, jo mer fengende blir låta."




Bandinfo:
First gig ever - at PigallePiggyback is a norwegian pop/rock band playing only their own material. The songwriters are inspired by original artists such as John Lennon, Lou Reed, Robert Smith, Thom Yorke, Tom Waits, Beck, Neil Young and Bob Dylan.

Piggyback was formed by Tommy and Neil Anton who worked together and started jamming together in '96. When they decided to form a band Neil Antons brother Trond Arne joined them on drums, and late march '99 they found Holger in an ad in a magazine. The first rehearsal was on the 29th of march. The first gig was played june the same year, and since then: rehearsals, rehearsals and rehearsals, interrupted by an occasional gig in Oslo and the surrounding area.

Piggyback is not currently signed by any recordlabels, but on september 2nd 2000 they released the self-produced 5-track CD "Knucklesandwich". February 12. they released a radiopromo-single called Peggy Porn. This was playlisted in a few local radiostations in Norway and got very good reviews in the media.
