White-hot London rock trio

Three Trapped Tigers are a London-based trio that we at Clash and ClashMusic.com are predicting hot things for in 2008.

No, they won’t set the charts alight – they’re not that sort of band. But TTT’s blend of Holy Fuck instrumental histrionics and 65daysofstatic’s bludgeoning incessancy earns the outfit our thumbs-up seal of approval. Indeed, so impressed are we that we’ve asked ‘em to play the January Clash Saturday Social, held at Notting Hill Arts Club on January 31.

Look for more details on that show, soon, and get information on December’s show HERE.

But back to TTT, and today’s Track of the Day – ‘3’ is taken from the band’s self-titled EP, due via Blood & Biscuits records on December 8 (although eagle-eyed sorts may spot a copy sooner). The trio don’t name their songs as such – perhaps it’s because lyrics are in short supply? Or, more likely, they’d rather let the music do the talking over any titular ambiguity.


Get more information on Three Trapped Tigers on MySpace. Tomorrow’s TotD treat comes from The Virgins… see you in 24.
