The second Idle Tigers album, Persisting Like a Racehorse, is available now. This recording is a collection of song-stories in the poisoned pastoral mode, performed on rustic synthesizers with vocals recently described as sounding like “the world’s most nervous person”.

The debut album, ‘The Spirit Salon’ is available on iTunes.

From ‘The Ideal Tiger’

“The Spirit Salon is a sociable gathering of several centuries’ worth of spirit voices, speaking achronologically of times spent as story-tellers and ballad-sellers, MIDIeval wanderers and have-a-go heroes, TV personalities and housebound mugs.

The salon is a civilised and domestic environment. The spirits who attend have been summoned from public, outdoor realms: the open sea, the Houses of Parliament, Edwardian garden parties, the musical theatre, and English Civil War battlefields.”

According to Jonny Opinion:

“You may unearth a joke where you least expect to. Idle Tigers - a sham? - I know him (them) as Ross, which rhymes with dust, the most part being the sound of empty space, which too rhymes with dust (it was Ross who originally taught me that everything rhymes) which is my earliest memory of Ross, who rhymes with Huysmans, Brel, Byron, Bacon, fake, fact, fad, gadget.
