Day: 597

Shirt: Tiger Trap - Sourgrass

Color: white

Brand: Jerzees

Source: I hold this band very near and dear to me.  Maybe it is because i am from sacramento and so are they. it also might be at a time when i was really into punk rock and also in the Cranberries, Ivy, and Mazzy Star this band surfaced.  which kinda fused the two worlds together and made sense to me.  i will say that back then i wasn’t a huge fan of girls singing punk rock music.  mostly because i just hadn’t been exposed to many.  I think Tilt was the only one i was really ok with at the time.  tiger trap came along and blew that out of the water for me.  they showed me a girl can front a punk band and not scream to get her point across.  

Tiger Trap’s music was not only melodic but also romantic in a punk way.  it was refreshing at a time when Riot Girl music was at an all time high hating on men and things in general, these songs seemed more positive and sweet.  neither of these albums are available to stream BUT the full length is on iTunes should you listen and feel inspired to purchase.  

Not sure where these girls are today but a big thank you goes out to them for making great music and pushing music into (then) foreign place.  wherever you ladies are today know that this guy is extremely grateful and thinks of your band at least once a month.  


Day # 293 Little Wings - Tiger Head
Color: Brown
Brand: Port And Company
Source: Wonderful day today in LA.  I will never get sick of waking up to beautiful weather that is ripe to do anything.  a swim perhaps?  some shopping?  playing with the bulldog for 10 min until she does from exhaustion? Go see a show outside? get skin cancer?  yeah all of that is possible today.  its that kind of day.  I bet i even hear a flute at some point, like i am walking through some Jethro Tull Music Video, or for those of you who are too young for Jethro Tull. perhaps Gardens And Villa.
With that scene set, it pretty much sums up th eking of wonderful music you will hear form Little Wings.  the only thing that would be missing i left out are beach and wave sounds.  he surely would have some of those in there.  i bet he keeps them stashed away in his beard for emergencies.
Not only is this dud a super good musician, but he is also an immensely talented artist that i highly suggest checking out his work if he ever gets around to showing it.  I think he paints in-between writing songs and surfing. meaning he surfs then he plays music then surfs…repeat.
