Tiger - Girl From The Petrol Station
One of the greatest and mostly unknown bands from the Brit-Pop era, Tiger put out some classic records before disbanding right after their second full LP. I was hooked right away after hearing b-side Icicle on a Vox Magazine compilation and went on to collect all of their releases. All but one. The second album Rosaria spawned the 2 part Friends single. The band split before the second one got it's commercial release. This would be the 2 part Girl From The Petrol Station. Promo copies did go out and I managed to find part 1 with it's exclusive b-sides, Paul Young and Sea Shandy which you can DL below. The part 2 b-sides are another story. Even Dan from Tiger himself could not find a copy for me. I know they are out there and they are called God It's Good and Rolling Rose. If you have them, please send them to me for they are the only 2 official Tiger tracks I have never heard! In the meantime, enjoy the 3rd and 4th rarest Tiger tracks out there. Cheers!
