Pigbag: Warehouse, Liverpool

Penny Kiley, Smash Hits, 1 April 1982

PIGBAG ARE 'HOT' at the moment and so are the audience — very hot. The Warehouse Club (originally a real warehouse and cosily underground like all the best clubs from the legendary Cavern to the legendary Eric's) is thronged with Liverpool's hipsters: ex-punks, disco fans, a Phil Oakey lookalike and even three genuine beatniks (fitting the band's image) with authentic beards.
