Pull Tiger Tail + Larrikin Love

Pull Tiger Tail

Pull Tiger Tail are an indie band from London, England. All three members are ex-students of Goldsmiths College. Including ex-members of the rock band Antihero, the band previously shared a house in New Cross, South-East London with Klaxons.

Having formed while driving from New York to San Francisco on a bet, Pull Tiger Tail's name came to them in a dream. Their debut gig was at London's Tatty Bogle club in February 2006. The band released their debut single, "Animator", on Young and Lost Club Records on the 25th of September, 2006. Copies were limited to 1000, with 500 vinyls hand-customised by the band.

Larrikin Love
Larrikin Love are a four piece indie rock band from London. Consisting of Edward Larrikin (vocals), Micko Larkin (guitar), Alfie Ambrose (bass) and Coz Kerrigan (drums), and also occasionally including violinist Rob Skipper from The Holloways, the band were briefly described as being part of a 'Thamesbeat' scene by the NME, a scene which is now widely accepted as having never really existed. They experiment with many different styles of music including punk, reggae, calypso, and Bluegrass, and tend to add something of an Irish folk flavour to the typical indie sound. While often compared musically to bands such as The Clash, The Pogues and The Libertines, the band draw many of their lyrical influences from literature, including writers such as Rimbaud, Wilde and Orwell.

After releasing their first two singles on the independent labels Young and Lost Club and Transgressive Records respectively, the band signed to Warner as part of a 'consultancy deal' between Warner and Transgressive. The band released their debut album, The Freedom Spark on the 25 September 2006.
