Cosmogramma presents Paper Tiger live, with Waldo’s Gift + DJ Veto | Sat Oct 14th | 9pm | £5/3adv
Paper Tiger began in a bedroom in suburban Wolverhampton: music-obsessed teenagers comparing notes on African funk compilations, Japanese animation, soundsystem culture, apocalyptic space-rap and Miles Davis’ little-known collaboration with Sting.
Now based in Leeds, between them they have heaps of musical experience and knowledge from which to draw – a seamless blend of electronic wizardry and good old-fashioned jazz chops; squiggly space-synths and fidgety funk; Beats, Rhymes And Life.
“Blast Off is altogether a triumph, a relentlessly modern record that channels deep understanding of the past and most importantly a core of rump-shaking funk that, completely aside from how clever or strange it is, makes it an absolute delight to keep coming back to.” The Arts Desk ★★★★★
“Paper Tiger inhabit a niche that is all their own… Organic, energetic, non-conformist and filled with unexpected sonics.” Bonafide Magazine
“How good is this? An album like this one is rare these days. Loving it.” Renegades Of Jazz
