Just another site that's giving you hard to find music

These will be some Rarer tunes (Mod, powerpop, punk, ska, - if it's got a good sound I'll post it) ripped from my vinyl collection. The idea is that now you Know about them, You can seek them out!

The Tigers - (Walk Tall) Do The Crawl (1980)


b/w - Go For It

The final offering from the Ska/New wave band The Tigers that got a promo release just before Christmas (I think it had a general release in Jan '81)

Tony Jacks (voc. guitar)
Ross McGeeney (guitar, voc)
Nic Potter (bass)
Pete Dobson (drums)
Nick Cola (keyboards, voc)

For a decent bio (which I refuse to plagiarize go here)

In an interview (Oct '80) Tony stated he (& Nick Cola) was working with a couple of young guys called "the Dynamites" (well in Feb '81 this same 45 got a release on the logo label under their name - it's in the download so you can compare & contrast)

  1. Hanx Bristoboy! Great info. on this post! I had posted Savage Music awhile ago at a blog I contribute to downunderground so now I know what version it is and what else the Tigers have done. Peace and Happy times in the New Year.

  2. The Pool Sharks LP from 1987 was also on cassette (FIN 1K). Can't find any info on KIK 8 or 9 in any of my reference books either.
