The Legendary Tigerman releases his sixth LP, Misfit, on August 24th via Dirty Water Records. A modern-day concept album that finds him on a journey of self-discovery during a road trip from Los Angeles to Death Valley, it features eleven tracks of dark, hypnotic desert-rock, along with a bonus EP that showcases the Tigerman’s softer side.
Highlights include “Motorcycle Boy,” a song built upon crunchy, razor-sharp guitar riffs and a danceable beat, and “Fix Of Rock’n’Roll” which tells a tale of dirty desire with wailing guitars and seductive vocals.
The Legendary Tigerman is Portugal-based multi-instrumentalist and blues aficionado Paolo Furtado, who has played festivals and sold-out shows around the world. He first rose to critical acclaim with 2009’s Femina, which went Platinum in Portugal. Furtado plans to tour Europe and the US in 2019.
The Dirty Water Club started in October 1996 in the Tufnell Park neighbourhood of north London, at a venue called The Boston. The club's name is derived from The Standells' 1966 hit 'Dirty Water' which glorifies the US city of Boston, Massachusetts.
Past performers have included The White Stripes (voted by Q Magazine as one of the top 10 gigs of all time, Mojo one of the top 30 and Kerrang one of the top 100!), The Gories, Country Teasers, Black Lips, NOBUNNY, Kid Congo Powers, The Fleshtones, Billy Childish, Radio Birdman, The Dirtbombs, Thee Michelle Gun Elephant, The 18.104.22.168's, The Horrors and The Brian Jonestown Massacre to name just a few. The club has also seen some original '60s performers, such as The Monks, ? and the Mysterians, Kim Fowley, Sky Saxon, GONN, Michael Davis of the MC5 and more grace its stage.
Their in-house record label, Dirty Water Records, is one of the leading garage/beat/(real) R&B labels in the world.
