This is the first album of Tiger Family. Recorded about 5 months after starting the band in April 2015, it somehow reflects the early, raw and rugged sound they had back than.
The self-titled debut record of that self-called "supergroup" from Graz and arguably their very last too, was recorded completely live in a fucked up cellar with singer Ratrock's beloved Tascam TSR8 tape machine and a bunch of old microphones borrowed from friends and relatives.

Geschichtliches:
"Erfinder" von Tiger Family ist ein gewisser David Künstner (Spring And The Land). Selbiger ging bereits mehrere Jahre mit dem Gedanken schwanger, eine Ratrock Tot Sint Jans-Tribute-Band zu gründen. Deshalb hat er Ratrock Tot Sint Jans himself, gemeinhin anerkannt als Österreichs "merkwürdigster" Songschreiber, zum Casting eingeladen. Dieser schaffte den Call, bestand aber seinerseits darauf, die beiden einzigen "Musiker" in seinem Bekanntenkreis, ebenfalls zu verpflichten: Klaus Wohlgemuth (Spring And The Land, Fragments Of An Empire,...) und Paul Pfleger (Polkov, Stereoface) konnten nach zähen Verhandlungen angekauft werden.
Musikalisch liefern Tiger Family eine bisher ungehörte Mixtur aus weinerlichen Balladen, Slow-Rock und mehrstimmigen Urheberrechtsverletzungen.
