Melbourne sextet The Tiger & Me weave a rare mixture of styles and sounds as three lead vocalists exchange and merge tunes from whispered ballad to fevered maelstrom, from charming pop to explosive, dirty rock.
I hope you've (all) been (very) well (lately, and in future).
We're "playing" a few "gigs" at a bar called the Sporting Club, starting "tomorrow". These shows will not differ greatly from the various other front bar residencies we've done in the past, including one at this very venue a few months ago, in that they'll be a lot of fun, pretty relaxed, a chance for us to try some new songs and play around with old ones. Basically they're free and early and always a laugh.
To summarize, if you don't value your face we will be happy to gently melt it off with our post-indie cabaret circus folk alt-baroque love boat clint eastwood rules. The football fans in the band (3 of 6, but the best 3) will be staying to watch Geelong and Collingwood on the TV out back, while the non-football fans in the band go and have a good hard look at themselves. We're doing this every Friday in September, EXCEPT the 16th, when Jane, Sarah and I will be playing the part of session musicians in Pinky Beecroft's band at a billionaire's private party in Hobart. True story.
If you haven't been to a show since we launched our new release 'The Howling Fire', we'll be selling those at the gigs, or you can now get them online at Vitamin. A couple of tracks taken from it are up on our website listen page. Reviewers have been saying lots of very nice things about it lately, which makes us happy. Although poor old Tobes keeps getting shafted, with his fine vocal work being serially wrongly accredited to me. Your brooding understated charm might be a winner with the ladies, Tobes, but it just goes to show that jumping around on stage like an idiot can pay off, in the form of occasional mis-accreditation. Here are some of the online reviews, if anyone is interested. Faster Louder, AU Review, The Dwarf, The Orange Press.
Hope to see you at one of the shows,
and, in reverse alphabetical order, Tobes, Tim, Sarah, Jane and Fez.
