TIGERTAILZ Bassist To Sit Out Cardiff Gig, Temporary Replacement Announced

TIGERTAILZ bassist Pepsi Tate will be unable to perform at the band's upcoming show at St. David's Hall in Cardiff, U.K. on February 10 due to ongoing and worsening illness.

Commented the band: "Following a series of MRI and CT scans an abnormal growth has been discovered in the area of Pepsi's pancreas. A biopsy will be performed on the 9th of February (the day before the St. David's Hall gig), and news of the results will be made available as soon as possible. Pepsi would like to thank the many fans and friends who've extended their best wishes, and looks forward to getting back to work with the band later this year." Glenn "Nailz" Quinn will stand in for Pepsi on bass for the St. David's Hall show on February 10.

Tate recently spent time working on what will be the 'TAILZ' first official DVD release. The new DVD (provisionally entitled "Blast") will contain footage from last year's European live shows as well as lots of outtakes, interviews and also the recent promo video "Falling Down". TIGERTAILZ is also in early discussions with a record company about a possible reissue of the original "Wazbones" album. "In many people's opinion, the 'Wazbones' record was the best album the 'TAILZ ever made," reads a posting on the group's web site. "If a deal can be done, this would actually be the first official release of this record as it has never been released in its true form. The later released version was re-recorded with new songs. If agreed, this reissued 'Wazbones' album would feature all the original songs which were recorded in 1991 at Monnow Valley Studios [in] Monmouth, Rockfield Studios [in] Monmouth and Front Page Recorders [in] Costa Mesa, CA, USA. The album featured a 'Clockwork Orange' theme with all the band members decked out in the same clothes as the characters in film."
