""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."




2013 Update
(03/01/2013) The years go fast! 11 years have passed since the boys in Piggyback parted ways. Still we receive messages that people enjoy the music, and we have quite a few followers on Facebook.

Congratulations!

Neil Anton is currently living and working in Dublin, Trond and Holger still works in Oslo. They are not currently involved in any music projects worth mentioning.

2005 update
(25/01/2005) It's now been over 3 years since Piggyback was put to sleep. Still the website has quite a few visitors, and the MP3-files are popular as ever!

We have talked about releasing a CD with a collection of previously released songs, and a few songs we recorded but never released. This might or might not happen some time during 2005.

Neil Anton has just released an EP ("toothless I") with his new (old) band Sublust. You find their website here: www.sublust.no

Tommy Tokyo records songs for himself, and has had somewhat success alone. You can check out a few songs at NRK Urørt

Trond Arne still plays with a few bands, but Holger has unfortunately not played in any bands since november 2003. That is a situation that can not continue, so if you live in Oslo and need a steady bassplayer, feel free to contact Holger at holger (at) lockertsen dot com.

Another update - easter 2003
(15/04/2003) Tommy Tokyo released his Tommy Tokyo EP on his own label in november 2002, and it got good reviews in a few norwegian media. For more information on his project and his songs check out his profile at Norwegian Bandindex

Neil Anton plays with his pre-piggyback band Crunchy Frog, but also pursues his solo-work and plays now and then with Trond Arne. Check out his infopage at Norwegian Bandindex here.

Holger has been playing with his new band Dawn Of Ages since november 2002. Check out their act at www.dawnofages.com

What's going on?
(11/10/2002) Here's an update on the guys:

** Tommy is releasing a promo-EP under the name Tommy Tokyo this month. He plays all instruments himself.

** Neil Anton is also doing solo-work. He opened alone for Chris Mills (US) at So What! in Oslo this september.

** Trond and Holger are currently without bands. They have been playing a little with Neil Anton, but are both in search of new bands to play drums and bass.

R.I.P.
(05/01/2002) Due to personal differences within the band, Piggyback is history as of today. We thank all our fans for all the support. The website will be up and running as usual for the time being. Information about new projects by the bandmembers will be posted here.
