Now Hear Tygers of Pan Tang

Now Hear Tygers of Pan Tang

OK, so I was taking advantage of an activity that is now totally legal in Canada, and, I dunno why, but I decided to listen to some Tygers of Pan Tang, the band that sounds like a weird combination of a cat video and a kung-fu movie. I mean, I don't know what kind of pan tang these tygers have been smoking, but they've definitely got some wild stuff going on!

The music is like a rollercoaster ride that never ends, with riffs that hit you like a ton of bricks and solos that make your fingers bleed just by listening to them. These guys are like the lovechild of Iron Maiden and Judas Priest, raised by hippies who followed 80s glam fashion. Loud metal, big hair, eyeliner, and vocals that sound like a cross between a lion's roar and a banshee's wail. And fun! Don't forget fun!

I think we can all guess where the Tygers of Pan Tang came up with the name — or at least what they were doing while they came up with the name . I mean, it sounds like a rejected Dungeons and Dragons character; but at the same time, it feels like it just might mean something deep. . And how much fun are their album covers, which look like they were made in Microsoft Paint by a 12-year-old?

You know what they say: don't judge a book by its cover, or a band by its name. Well, they would be wrong! With the Tygers of Pan Tang , what you see is what you get. If you're into heavy metal that's so over the top it's almost ridiculous, you are gonna love these guys!!

Now Hear A Classic: Status Quo

Alright, folks, it's time to dig deep into the archeology of music for a review of Status Quo, the band that's been rockin' and rollin' since the dinosaurs roamed the earth. They're like the missing link between Elvis and AC/DC, with a touch of ZZ Top thrown in for good measure.

The thing about Status Quo is that they've been around for so long that they've become their own genre. It's like they invented a new kind of music called "Quo-Rock" that's just as addictive as chocolate-covered bacon. You know what you're getting with Status Quo: catchy riffs, driving beats, and lyrics that make you want to sing along even if you have no idea what they're talking about.

Coming up waaaaay before the visual age of MTV, back when it didn't matter much what you looked like, Status Quo isn't winning any awards for their fashion sense. They're like a bunch of grandpas who raided a thrift store and decided to start a band. But hey, who needs fancy clothes when you've got a guitar that can make your ears bleed? So, if you want to rock out like it's 1975 and you don't care about being cool, Status Quo is the band for you!
