SMALLTOWN TIGERS - Five Things (*A REVIEW*)
In trouble torn times there's one thing you can rely on, some good old Rock'n'Roll music, especially if it's been given a fresh spin. Smalltown Tigers are three spunky punky ladys from the not so small town of Rimmini in Italy. Their debut album Five Things is punchy punky poppy affair with a growling garage grunge bite. From the opening track 'Just Friends' to the closing 'Five Things' Smalltown Tigers uncage a set of eight songs with no frills, but plenty of spills, thrills and hooks that kill. Imagine the Ramones getting sand kicked in their faces by The Runaways at a beach party while Kurt and Courtney look on. Great stuff! Infectious and catchy as.... (Instert a dodgy Coronavirus reference here if you so wish.) Unfortunately due to the present global 'covid 19 clampdown' Smalltown Tigers have had to cancel their UK tour. The album however will be still be released on April 24th. Check out their Facebook page for details.
