  • Description

    Tiger Moth began as all-star recording unit, bringing together musicians who had played in many notable English roots bands of the '70s and early '80s including the Old Swan band, the New Victory Band, the English Country Blues Band, Cock & Bull, the Albion band, Jumpleads and Oak. Their first single and 1984 debut album caused such a demand that they happily became a gigging entity, and for the next five years roared around UK festival ceilidhs, revered or feared for their noisy, no-holds-barred, improvisational approach and influences from everywhere. Subsequent studio adventures under the name of " Orchestre Super Moth" included collaborations with Gambian kora masters Dembo Konte & Kausu, Tex-Mex accordeon wizard Flaco Jiminez, Sierra Leonian guitar king Abdul Tee-Jay and multi-instrumentalist Hijaz Mustapha from 3 Mustaphas 3. Their compilation CD "Mothballs" gets it's first UK release to coincide with their 2004 revival. Completely remastered, and expanded to include the best of their first two albums, singles, 12"s and rare tracks and a bonus special 2004 remix by Simon Emerson of Afro Celts.
