TYGERS OF PAN TANG

1982

TYGERS OF PAN TANG: ‘Rendezvous’ (MCA).

Isn’t it ridiculous to see how the Tygers have Progressed since the agelessly awful ‘Don’t Touch Me There’ EP’ on Neat? If there was ever a band I thought would die within its first year, then it was the Tygers. Yet here they remain, three years later, producing one of the best HM singles I’ve heard in a long time. Amazing!

The group are branching out into the world of songs rather than riffs and the use of sparkling keyboards and an excellent drum sound only enhances the effect.

Covering other people’s songs has helped the Tygers beyond measure. Maybe they should do an album of covers!
