1. Master of Illusion
Formed in 1979 in Yorkshire the TYGERS OF PAN TANG were created by guitarist ROB WEIR who at the tender age of 17 entered his chosen profession.
Considerable commercial success was achieved in the 80’s by the band until the release of ‘Burning In The Shade’ which Weir did not feel was representative of the band and the TOPT were placed into a ‘permanent state of retirement’.
Fast forward to 1998 and after a request to play at Wacken festival in Germany the band reformed and have been playing to sell out gigs across Europe since.
This album ‘Leg Of The Boot’ was recorded live in Holland recently and some three studio bonus tracks have been included for the fans.
Play very loud!
ROB WEIR, DEAN ROBERTSON, CRAIG ELLIS, BRIAN WEST, RICHIE WICKS
