The Legendary Tigeman – Misfit


The Legendary Tigeman – Misfit
Dirty Water Records – 2018
Rock, Garage, Punk, Blues, Stoner
Rated: *****

Recorded in Rancho De La Luna with the help from grandmaster Catching, the Misfit album tells the story of a man who wants to lose himself in the desert. It’s the new record released by Portugal’s very own The Legendary Tigerman. It’s got groove, it’s got soul, it’s got swagger and it has that magical magnetic ability to keep you captivated from the first tones of that danceable catchy opener Motorcycle Boy to the last farewell song To All My (Few) Brothers. On the vinyl edition, we are treated to four more ballads, which add even more spice to the already damn well amazing record. It’s a trek through the desert, a trek through musical history, through rock, blues, punk and dipping your toes into the stoner pool and drying yourself off with some gritty romp and stomp that would sound perfect everywhere but especially in some ramshackle drinking hole filled with forlorn and dusty characters. With dogs howling at the moon and knives next to the blood speckled playing cards spread out across the tables. It’s beautiful and it will make you shiver with desire or fear or that weird oxygen deprived feeling the desert heat can give you. Or striving to be your own man, your true self, that outsider that lurks beneath the surface. Misfit. The soundtrack for your destiny!
