Meet Brighton-formed English Rock power trio TIGERCUB. The band comprises Jamie Stephen Hall (vocals and lead guitar), James Allix (drums), and Jimi Wheelwright (bass) and their loud, brash, and energetic sound. It’s a punch of grungy distorted rock that has them gaining fans from all over, including those of the famous rock-star kind… like Stone Gossard of Pearl Jam fame. I asked a few questions of frontman Jamie, which you can read below.

 

THE RECLUSIVE BLOGGER: Can you talk about Tigercub’s origin story? How did the band come together?


TIGERCUB: Tigercub met in Brighton on the south coast of England whilst studying at The University of Sussex. We all bonded over a love of Jeff Buckley, The Dandy Warhols, and Nirvana and just went from there



THE RECLUSIVE BLOGGER: First, I want to talk about your new song “Show Me My Maker” and the inspiration and songwriting process? Also, how did the remix with Stone Gossard from Pearl Jam come about?


TIGERCUB: I’m inspired by a lot of classical music and that always finds its way into my writing, this song was inspired by Led Zeppelin and Rage against the Machine I wanted to write a banger.



THE RECLUSIVE BLOGGER: How excited are you guys for your upcoming Belasco show in Los Angeles? How did the opener spot for Porno For Pyros come to you guys?


TIGERCUB: SO excited we are so star struck and honoured to be opening for Porno for Pyros especially on home turf!



THE RECLUSIVE BLOGGER: Do you have a favorite Porno For Pyros song?

TIGERCUB: I love all their records, but Pets and Cursed Female are just so iconic it’s hard not to go to them first, I also love Tahitian Moon.


THE RECLUSIVE BLOGGER: What three words would you use to describe your band and its signature sound?


TIGERCUB: Big. little. Loud


THE RECLUSIVE BLOGGER: And, lastly, what's next on the horizon for Tigercub?

TIGERCUB: After the PFP we are sxsw. Then we head back to Blighty for a breather and it’s off to the states again for a headline show in May!

You can catch Tigercub out now on tour and stream “Show Me My Maker (Remix)”.
