Tigertailz are the band to namecheck/wear their t-shirt,when it comes to the glam/sleaze scene.None more so than at KISS gigs[tribute bands as well],I have had many a chat with other fans,delighted to talk about one of the most under rated bands in rock.We are small in number,but dedicated bunch rivalling KISS fans in their passion.Want to know why,check out this album and you will see .
Bezerk is the second album,released in 1990 by the classic Tailz line up,most notably featuring Kim Hooker on vocals.Kim is Tailz's second vocalist,who is the number one choice with most fans,as his vocal style drives the songs with more excitement,than the more rough and ready Steevi Jaimz.
Tailz dared too be shameless out and out glamsters,in every aspect,whether it be their image[huge hair,and tonnes of make up],live shows,and of course their tunes,and what tunes they were.BIG riffs,[heavier than most bands of their ilk]and HUGE and I mean HUGE sing along chorouses,sounding like twenty odd people belting it out for all there worth.Ten songs digitally recorded and direct metal mastered.This album has been specially designed to explode your head,so says the warning on the sleave, and you know what it's true.
Anthems like ACTION CITY,SICKSEX,and LOVE OVER LOAD are great but it's NOISE LEVEL CRITICAL, with it's cool radio intro,that is the true highlight.I say true because it's a better song overall than LOVE BOMB BABY.LOVE BOMB is the Tailz most popular/hated song,winding up many a beardy progger,and sweaty metalhead with it's almost constant O-T-T chorus,but I love it.
TIGERTAILZ pushed glam metal to the max with this record[ more so than Poison's debut],at a time when other similar bands were holding back,times and tastes were changing never to be the same again,but they did it anyway.Tailz's attitude is summed up perfectly by their cartoon tiger mascot,drawn by Tailz bassest PEPSI TATE[r.i.p],which you can see for your self if you buy the album.
