Tiger Warsaw are the tits. They really are. Someone needs to sign them and put them on tour, this is their third self-recorded, self-released collection of songs and it could well be their best.
With unfathomably vague song titles as usual (top marks Dean for the succinct You Ruined My Life You Fucking Bitch) Tiger Warsaw show how inventive they can be.
With new guitarist ADAM TREVERTON (formerly of dullards FLATLANDS) they have an extra weight to their sound, while that may translate better live, it makes a difference to the songs on show here, Tev's bass sounds incredible on here, almost cutting through everything, nice.
If you've caught them live recently, alot of the material here has been played for a while, but sounds mighty here, some parts have an almost country-like drunken swagger to them (see end of closing track Nailed It for proof).
The vocals again blend into the background, Dean's whispers and grumbles sounding very council estate paedophile at times, and a full animal howl at others.
This is music for trucking I reckon, you can listen to it at tigerwarsaw.com or ask for a lovely handmade CDR dealy, either way, listen.
Their drummer is called Dave.
