Part 2 of 6 in our series celebrating the best live acts from around the world.
Disco and slo-mo darlings TIGER & WOODS on Nov 16th are Part 2 of our live programme. The anonymous pair have captivated audiences of all persuasions with a meteoric rise to fame over the last two years, propelled by releases on Running Back, their own Editainment label, a stand-out RA podcast, constant festival tours and a wealth of masterful remixes. In the tight confines of Snafu this one is sure to light up Aberdeen big time.
Who are Tiger & Woods??? No one really knows the truth, but here’s how they met: One day in a fairly dusty basement (digging for records of course), these two fine gentlemen nearly got into a fight over a nameless boogie record which is so rare (super rare!) that even the usual disco detectives hadn’t discovered it yet. Actually, they still haven’t. Without a name – and only identified by a test pressing sticker dedicated to the NYC-disco-DJ-legend Walter “Hot Trix” Scott – the 72-year old owner of the record store/basement accidently placed the record on his belt-driven turntable. Turning their heads and smacking their lips, both were so full of lust to get their hands on this precious relic that they both rushed to the booth, waving their hard-earned cash.
Some Italian profanities and chest-beating later, Larry and David decided to buy the thing together (the old dude had raised the price sky-high by this point) and take it to Tiger’s studio. The rest was history, and a rather good one.
