debut long player, limited to 500 with 'chaigercats' tea and recipe for tigercats' peanut butter cookies. (fika recordings) on april 9, 2012. with 11 fantastically catchy, heartfelt and infectious songs, the band are well in to their stride, demonstrating an enthusiastic confidence and a fun-loving charisma. here's a bit of history: tigercats' singer duncan played in esiotrot until suddenly he didn't, and after a respectful interval of ambling around for 18 months he asked his brother giles to join on bass in a new band. the name tigercats appeared out of the air and was soon followed by jonny on drums, stefan on guitar and laura on keyboard. tigercats have released three singles on haircut and weepop! records that have been mostly compared to orange juice and hefner, with the wave pictures and violent femmes close behind. steve lamacq said their longest ever song, "banned at the troxy" was "a great little single" and huw stephens said "it reminds me of los campesinos that, and that's a very very very good thing". this is of course excellent, and perhaps someone will pick up on their love of chic eventually.
