  • Two more MM like bands

    I have3 found these bands Tygers of Pan tang aand Storm bringer Stormbringer was on the 4 teletextt so it could be stormsbringer or something. Are these MM inspired?

    Well, as we've learned with Deep Purple, it's not impossible for "Stormbringer" to be used unconciously. But I think one would be hard-pressed to say that a band called Tygers of Pan Tang wasn't MM-inspired.

    So, I checked their website... looked at their FAQ section... which has one question: Where did the name come from? Their answer was, well, WRONG. Read and shake your head sadly:

    Q. Where did the name come from?
    A. A novel written by author David Moorcock included the cliffs of Pan Tang which were guarded by sacred tigers. It was an amalgamation of the two.

    Not that a search for "moorcock" wouldn't set a person on the right path for the book, but geez, if you're gonna honor someone by referencing their work, at least get their name right! :roll:

      Maybe if we took a copy of one of the White Wolf editions, or one of the old SFBC editions, of the Elric stories, and smacked 'em upside they heads, repeatedly, the proper information might sink in!

      I bought a copy of a Tygers CD, 'The Cage,' at a record sale a few months ago. Wasn't that heavily impressed. Basic '80's pop metal.

          Yeah! I know! As iv'e said before i'm collecting material for a site with bands using moorcocks stuff. Both for Mike and the fans. Even the band who's using the most of Elric stuff (Domine) can't even pronounce Melnibonأ© right with the french 'أ‰' "Melnibon-'ay'". They just sing "Melnibone". If you guys find more of this stuff send it to me please!

            Yeah! I love metal music. But Tygers stuff isn't that good, at least for me anyway..

                The Tygers of Pan Tang are stilll going? Wow. Memory lane. I bought their first single when I was in high school back in 78 or 79. Snarling tiger on the front, pic of the band standing in front of a Tiger Moth airplane on the back. Probably still have it tucked away somewhere. Didn't they do a song called Fireclown, too?

                    This is sort of sad and obscure, but I was just reading my Elric of Melnibone omnibus, and in the Singing Citadel he fights a creature with coral fangs... and the new Distillers album is called Coral Fang. Is there a connection, or am I just hopelessly confused?
