Who/home: Louder-is-more three-piece from Brighton, the legendary city
of the spectacular 60s mods vs rockers beach battles…
Members: Jamie Hall (guitar), Jimi Wheelwright (bass) and James Allix (drums)
Track: BITTERSWEET MOTHERFUCKER – from their recently released,
excellent 5-track ‘Repressed Semantics’ EP – on iTunes
Score: Smoking cyclic riffs carry this pounding grunge killer. Loud and clear.
After a couple of spins you’ll scream the bloody catching motherfucker chorus
at every single door in your street until you end up in a police squad car nicely
wrapped in a straitjacket. Tall frontman/songwriter/guitarist Jamie Hall recently
said he wanted Tigercub‘s music to be a refuge for anyone who feels a bit fucked
over by the current state of affairs. The man doesn’t talk bollocks as proved last
Sunday when the three desperados hit Belgium (together with Toronto’s notorious
noisemakers Dilly Dally).
Turning up the volume in Belgium…
They ran through a short but highly evincive set in Antwerp.
No posing. No faking. No special effects. Take it or leave it.
Stoner-grunge-rock hullabaloo to get your head activated &
melodic power ballads to recover. They came to confirm
aloud that they’re not a shit band…
Another attempt for a Chuck Berry duck move…
