Tiger Pussy – Mice

Tiger Pussy

Behind the purrs and sneers, the brashness that comes out naturally in Tiger Pussy is something that’s rather different from the tough guy stomp of their contemporaries and peers. Riot grrrl tends to get dragged in too many conversations involving women in punk, so let’s start by defying the trope and letting go of any gender politics mention: these Cebuano punks deploy three chord menace that felt dug rut down deep, devoid of artifice or bravado, their only intention, to infest our ears with pure flaming rock n’ roll that kicks ass and tits.

Take “Mice” as an example. This messy sensual fury is every bit angry and fun as Flying Ipis or Tribal Fish, but the approach is invitingly imperfect, with chords bleeding in ecstatic jerks and the rhythms, assertively tight and rough on the edges. True to their punk rock spirit, the song captures adolescent angst way beyond their years; sugar-coating be damned.  In its piercing groove, you can feel anger and frustration fleshed out before your ears. And it’s cathartic and liberating in a way, something that hits nostalgic home. You know, those teenage years spent on questioning the world order and getting real mad at pointless things; its’ all here, in all its naked glory.
