Album Review

One does wonder how a band is defined nowadays. One assumes it refers to an established group of musicians, in which case Tygers of Pan Tang certainly fit the bill, as every member is a veteran, albeit, bar Robb Weir, not of Pan Tang itself. There again, as the booklet pointedly notes, this lineup lasted longer than the original; keeping the Tygers together was even harder than herding cats. In any event, this live album, recorded on an unnoted date an unnamed Dutch venue, captured for posterity this group of Tygers before they roared their last. And roar they did, through a scorching set of new numbers and old faves, including their classic "Don't Touch Me There," the single with which they introduced themselves to the world back in 1979. Obviously much has changed in the intervening quarter of a century since the New Wave of British Heavy Metal first crashed onto the island's shores.

Beyond the hell-bound live set, the CD appends three bonus tracks — a pimped-up "Highspeed Highway Superman," a storming "Slave to Freedom," and an incendiary "Don't Touch," all fired to pyrotechnic proportions in the studio. The Tygers may continue to change their stripes, but their claws remain razor sharp.

Hailing from the tiny town of Whitley Bay in far northeastern England, the Tygers of Pan Tang (whose name originated from the Michael Moorcock novel Stormbringer) formed when aspiring vocalist Jess Cox met guitarist Robb Weir at the local pub in November 1978. Weir, along with bassist Rocky Laws and drummer Brian Dick, had recently formed a band that combined the lessons of early-'70s heavy metal legends such as Black Sabbath and Deep Purple with the do-it-yourself ethos of punk -- an emerging style...
