Ferk me!

Whilst checking out the Moses Gate web-site for the December 28 YYZ gig, I spotted Tygers of Pan Tang - a band I used to be really into album-wise, but who I've never seen.

Off I go on virtual surfboard to find:

Wouldn't mind checking these out if it proves possible - either Bolton or Dudley would be ok for me if work commitments allow.

I'm pretty sure I've still got their early stuff on vinyl.

Ooh I'm tempted.  But what if they're old and shite now?  Only one way to find out I suppose.

I met Fred when Robert Plant did the Tube in @ 1982!

I had their first 4 albums (may still have?).

1980: Wild Cat
1981: Spellbound (fantastic album)
1981: Crazy Nights (not so good - maybe rushed out?)
1982: The Cage (another BLOODY good album.  The best of the 4 overall, with Spellbound a close second).

Hmm.  I've noticed that the new line-up only has Rob Weir (great guitarist) from the original squad.

Was John Sykes with the Tygers of Pan Tang?

He certainly was - check out the web-site I listed on my first post - it also has a discography with the artists listed who played on them.
