The October Des Was a Bowie Fan at Jamboree - indiepop, new wave, post-punk, 60s soul and rock'n'roll dancing round the LImehouse harbourside with live musical guests Tigercats...

Tigercats are a band from East London who make jagged and beautiful lyrical Pop music. Born from the glorious Esiotrot a few years back, their debut LP 'Isle of Dogs' was released on Fika Recordings in 2012. Sounds XP said it sounded like a "bastardised Bo Diddley beat chained to an indiepop set up; part Orange Juice, part Hefner". Their second LP 'Mysteries' followed in February 2015, a record with a "measured brilliance and a pulsating pop heart" (A Layer of Chips).

"Tigercats make music that stems from the weird collision point between Half Japanese, Hefner, Daniel Johnston, Prince, and Orange Juice, shuttling through this heady constellation armed with a pop sensibility marked out by its eloquence and ferocity. Duncan Barrett and Laura Kovic articulate sweet laments and aspersions over swathes of magnetic agit-glam-punk noise which prowls an alternately feral and refined musical terrain."
