Tigertailz - Knives EP

I am a massive Tailz fan and I have absolutely no interest in this.

From what I have been reading, Jay Pepper is a real douche, which is why so many of the band have left.

Kim, Ace and Sarah all left because of him.

 

I had no interest when Steevi tried to use the name a few years back, and I actually like Steevi, so this new version is in no way shape or form gonna be considered as Tigertailz for me.

Matt is a decent enough bloke, and has been in the band before, but that still doesnt give it any real credibility without the two main people being in the band. Kim made Tigertailz go from sounding like a bargain basement band, to a legitimate rock band that could stand toe to toe with the yanks sonically, and Pepsi was the true creative force in the band. I genuinely think they should have called it a day after he died.

Agree

Agree.

 

I agree with your right to not consider this a true Tigertailz album--though personally I think there's plenty of that patented Tigertailz sound present--but I disagree that this is nothing special. I've been playing the hell out of this EP for several weeks now and love damn near every second of it. (Just posted my full review for Hardrock Haven up in the "Shout" section, by the way.)

This song sounds (OK), but I hope it's not the best track.

It's not. "Bite the Hand," "Spit It Out," and especially "Punched in the Gutz" are all better.

I just thought that song was dull. Certainly not a song thats gonna sway me into rushing out and buying the EP.

I don't mind it would. Love to hear the full EP. Not as much as I'd love to hear a new White Widdow disc, but I would like to hear it. :)

So I get to take a quick listen to this one, and without high expectation, I think it's a good EP and perhaps the quality is as good as the new SKID ROW. Agree that 'Shoe Collector' isn't the best track, in fact it's an okay tune and I prefer the anthemic 'One Life' or 'Bite The Hand', the riffs are fantastic! 'Spit It Out' is a nice commercial-laden track, and 'Punched In The Gutz' is quite average and for me, it's the weakest track here. Production wise is great, musicianship hm well quite so-so, I think maybe Jules fits more with Widdow but he did an okay job.

Yeah, I though this was really good too. I really like all 5 songs and thinks it's a very good, hard hitting hard rock EP. Big riffs, strong songs. Thumbs up from me.

Gotta say again, I still spin this and I think this EP kicks ass. Best release with the Tigertailz name in a long, long time. And funnily enough, with the personnel involved, it's probably got the purest Tigertailz sound since the 'Bezerk' disc.

I quite like. I am amazed the ep has the same big production sound as most other TT releases. This is obviously without Pepsi. Have they kept a producer or engineer from the past? Their unique sound is still in there!

    • Ok. I can understand your thinking regarding one`s favorite bands. In my case it was  Bon Jovi. First album I ever bought was Slippery, liked NEw Jersey even better. Saw them live few times, but after 1995 only some good songs on each album but still bought albums,  since Richie left I cant stand their latest albums or even live. So from that scenario I see that I am not just following my favorite bands regardles what they put out.     But in Tesla case I do stlll enjoy their releases, even those post 2010. A admit that Shock had some filler but also some of their best songs post 2000 like The Mission.   I do miss the heavier  element that Tommy brought. songs like  Dont de-rock me, Action talks.
    • Blondie on the right of the second shot is PERFECTION!

    • Another one from this year that hasn't had much fanfare. These guys are always great value.  Very, very solid, Killer Hard Rock!!! I get a Robert Mason "vibe" with the vocals, which is always a good thing.                
    • Link to first single on its own:       I like it.
