PigBag is a post-punk instrumental band that began in Cheltenham (a town in Gloucestershire, England) in 1980 by Chris Hamlin and ended in 1983. Roger Freeman was the multi-instrumentalist, Chris Lee played the trumpet, and James Johnstone was the guitarist. The band played in parks and at Hamlin's house for jam sessions. They added a rhythm section with drummer Andrew "Chip" Carpenter and bassist Mark "Miff" Smith. Mark was soon replaced by Sam Underwood who was a former member of the band The Pop Group. Another member joined the ensemble, Ollie Moore, who was the tenor sax player.
