Tiger Tiger

"As we tiptoe through the traffic, into Soho fancy free. I'm your friend Joe, shuffle over. You've got nothing, only me ..." Another song about being cold in London, down and out in Soho. This wonderful performance of Tiger Tiger by Paul Quinn with the Nectarine No 9 is a cover of a song by Head, one of Gareth Sager's post-Pop Group outfits. The bleak Blake vision, the Songs of Experience reference, is something more closely associated with Gareth's old comrade Mark Stewart. But Gareth's CV is infinitely more interesting. Rip, Rig & Panic, Float Up CP, Head, Nectarine No. 9, Jock Scot, and a couple of cracking solo LPs. Lest we forget, Rip Rig & Panic were headline news at one time ...
