JR #07: THUNDER TIGER – Parts & Spares 12” LP 20 March 2012
Thunder Tiger is an acoustic record of stories lost among technical failures, two countries and two homes. It’s also an escape and an attempt to create something real, share ideas, traits or words, and record them on a piece of vinyl.
"Parts & Spares" is located between Almada and Brooklyn, in an abstract limbo which has been transforming itself during nearly a year after these songs were recorded. The intention is simple - trying to make something, achieve a goal and end up with something tangible in our hands. It's an album dedicated to friends and important people, but also intended to be shared.
Thunder Tiger is Bráulio Amado, frontman of Adorno and No Good Reason, and "Parts & Spares" his debut solo album, adding to the series of artistic objects he has been producing over the years. It’s an intimate, honest and real record. You can feel the punk spirit in each chord played free of technical perfectionisms; feel the thrill in every word.
Juicy, also divided between two countries (Portugal and the UK), and long time fan of Bráulio’s creativity and commitment, joins this edition with a special sense of belonging. We proudly present our 7th release, first of 2012 and first 12" LP in our discography.
