My friends in the fabulous Glam band Tigertailz sent me this release and asked if I would post it up so you all can catch them live if you happen to be in the U.K. If I was across the pond, I'd totally be at the show!
If you went ‘Bezerk’ in 1990 and there’s still a few pints of glam metal blood coursing through your veins, then whatever you do, get yourself down to the Borderline, London W1 on Saturday the 10th of October, 2009 and go ‘Bezerk’ all over again!
For the first time ever, Tigertailz will perform the whole of their colossal Glam metal masterpiece, ‘Bezerk’, live and in sequence!
Upon its release, ‘Bezerk’ entered the UK top 40, spawning the MTV hits, ‘Noise Level Critical’ and ‘Heaven’ as well as featuring the daddy of all glam-metal anthems, ‘Love Bomb Baby.’
Front man Kim Hooker says, "With it being nearly 20 years since its release, and the inevitable question of celebrating this fact coming up, it occurred to us that there were songs on there that we hadn’t played in years, so it’s really interesting going back and re-visiting that lesser played stuff.
From the hook-laden vibe of the songs, the big gang backing vocals, right down to the artwork, everything on that album was specifically created to be the most extreme, over the top, glam metal experience anyone had ever heard or seen…You either loved it or hated it – no one was in the middle. ‘Bezerk’ clearly defined what we were about at that time."
So, come October the 10th, the set will be
Love Bomb Baby
I Can Fight Dirty Too
Noise Level Critical
Twist & Shake
Squeeze It Dry
Call Of The Wild
…And there’ll be no let up after that. Also on the cards are some ‘Bezerk’ – era b-sides, the odd favourite and even a reactivated ‘Bezerk’ tour ‘Robocop’ guitar shred!
