The Tigers - Savage Music


i was browsing in a local charity shop recently and saw a 7" single called 'ska trekkin' by a band called the tigers.at this point i had never heard of the band but i bought the single anyway(despite not having a deck to play it on) because im an idiot and thought it may have been a ska version of the star trek theme!which of course it isnt.anyway after speaking to a few mates one of them sent me this link for what appears to have been their only album which i was told was only ever released in the usa.anyway what we have is a collection of nice ska-pop which im really enjoying listening to on this fine sunny day here in london.anyway give this a listen,enjoy some old school british ska circa 1979,and hopefully leave a comment.thanks!

This is a great LP. I recently posted an interview with the lead singer Tony Jacks about the origins of the band and his memories of touring the USA. Have a look:
