Sjappesnakk med Trond Sættem (Onward/Moldepunx)

MOLDEPUNX blir pakket på Tiger

Den obskure samlekassetten “Moldepunx go marching out” var i omløp i knappe 30 eksemplarer, men har vært å regne som en slags hellig gral for punkinteresserte fordi folk fra bandene på samleren i ettertid starta band som Svart Framtid, Kafka Prosess, Stengte Dører og So Much Hate. Denne reutgivelsen er resultatet av årevis med arkivgraving, lytting, nitidig utsiling og restaurering. Dette er intet mindre enn en norsk kulturhistorisk bauta. Tigerbloggen fikk invilget en prat med ildsjelen bak det hele – Trond Sættem!

10 years today: Kollwitz – Like Iron I Rust

Kollwitz in Studio Caliban, 2009

It’s been 10 years since the Norwegian sludge monolith Like Iron I Rust hit the earth with a ground shattering impact. We were overwhelmed by the album then, and we still are. We reached out to the band, and the lovely Endre Njøs responded to our humble request. The band even gave us a bunch of pictures that may, or may not have been previously published. Enjoy!

Sjappesnakk: Aiming for Enrike

I media går det en debatt om at musikken var så mye bedre før. Skribenten har tydeligvis aldri beveget seg særlig dypt i undergrunnen av norsk musikk, for her er godsakene på rekke og rad. Sist ut hittil i rekka er den nye utgivelsen til Aiming for Enrike. De serverer skive nummer 4, og nok engang disker de opp med et monster av ei skive. Vi snakket litt med duoen, samt fikk de til å sette opp den ultimate treningslista.

Sjappesnakk: ENVY (jp)

While we all are anxiously awaiting the new ENVY album (to be released on Pelagic Records on February 7th), we were lucky enough to be able to ask ENVY a few questions about their life as a band. Guitarist Nobukata Kawai was kind enough to answer our questions about the formation of ENVY and what music inspires them to create the epic post-hardcore/ post-rock hybrid that they’ve pioneered for almost three decades.

Sjappesnakk: Frail Body (US)

This varants a little back story before we continue; I used to run a small DIY label focusing on emo/ screamo back in 2008 to 2012 called Listen to Aylin Records. After lots of consideration, I decided to put the label on ice. In 2019, I was asked by some people I really respect and admire if it would ever be possible for me to ressurrect the label. I was proposed a 4 way split record between four of my favorite current bands, and I had to say yes. One of those bands were FRAIL BODY, a powerhouse of a trio who recently signed to Deathwish Inc. This band blew me away (along with the three other bands on the split), and I knew that they were going to be a household name. I couldn’t let the opportunity of releasing that split 12″ pass. I never would have dreamed that they would sign to one of my favorite labels either… I got in touch with the band before their upcoming album and asked them a few questions, which Lowell kindly answered.

Sjappesnakk: Hester V75

Introspektiv og ærlig hiphop har lenge vært noe vi kan assosiere med Bergen, men hvem kunne forutse at Bergen; Regnets By også ville komme med ei plate som oser av sol og sommer? Med sin tredje skive slipper Bergenskollektivet HESTER V75 solen inn i hjertene og stuene våre. Åtte kutt som lukter solkrem er nok til at vi i Tigerhulen vil ha svar på noen uhyre viktige spørsmål
